Reviews

'Real Lives Real Listening is outstanding. Unlike much so-called 'listening' material, it focuses systematically on the problems that really prevent learners from understanding natural speech, and does so through interesting and motivating activities. Highly recommended.' -Michael Swan 'Sheila Thorn's work leads the field in helping learners to engage with real speakers in real contexts. An outstanding resource for teachers and students alike.' -Professor Ron Carter 'An innovative series that offers a fresh and practical approach to developing listening skills by means of authentic texts.' -Dr John Field
