Teaching of Receptive Skills (Reading & Listening)

Teaching of Receptive Skills (Reading & Listening)

← Back to Course Schedule

Receptive reading skills work on the same basic principles as listening skills. Extensive reading involves the development of a students reading and comprehension skills outside of the classroom. Extensive reading is learner motivated, and generally for personal enjoyment. Intensive reading generally involves activities that are strictly planned and controlled by the teacher within the classroom. Receptive skills are the ways in which we process information from the discourse we see and hear. In this chapter, we discuss bottom up and top down approaches to both listening and reading. Also, the differences between extensive and intensive learning is covered. Extensive listening is student orientated and self motivated/autonomous listening to English material. Where conversely, intensive listening is teacher directed and in a strictly controlled environment.
