Despite its obvious importance, listening as a language skill can often lack the focus placed on the other areas of language such as speaking, reading, and writing. Learning to listen actively can greatly improve a student’s ability to achieve understanding. This workshop aims to help participants explore the concept of active listening in language teaching. Through a series of interactive activities participants will see what it is to listen actively and how effective it can be as a teaching tool. Finally the workshop will present some interesting ways in which this concept can be applied in the classroom.

In this task-based interactive presentation, I wish to highlight some problems in grammar-based, teacher-centered, and context-poor instruction that is still prevalent in English education in Japan and show directions for change that hopefully enable us to teach English in English for greater students’ benefits. More specifically, I will discuss the importance of paying attention to form in relation to meaning and function and helping students to see the connections among them if we wish for them to develop balanced communicative proficiency in English. I hope that the audience will get some theoretical ideas as well as hints for practical applications for more effective language teaching through my talk.
