English for academic study: Listening is based around transcripts from authentic lectures recorded in a genuine academic environment and, hence, is ideal for students preparing for English-medium study. The lectures are recorded on DVD to provide the student with an authentic learning experience. The lecture extracts are taken from a range of academic fields, including banking, development economics, marketing, psychology and linguistics. The extracts have been chosen to be accessible to a general audience, while at the same time appealing to students studying these subjects.
