Learning Ideas from ESL Radio and TV

Listening for detail

This is the opposite of listening for gist and usually happens after you have listened to the listening text once for general understanding. The detail you listen for could be to answer questions in a quiz, like the quizzes on ESL Radio and TV, or it could be to gain a better understanding of something in particular, like a vocabulary item, pronunciation or a grammar point. For example if you are studying passive voice listen to the text and try to identify each time the speaker uses the passive voice.
