Lesson 3: Putting it into Practice


As was pointed out in Lesson 2, post-listening represents a follow-up to the listening activity, and aims to utilize the knowledge gained from listening for the development of other skills. For listening activity on the previous pages, the following task as a post-listening activity:

We need your help in writing a short introduction in Arabic (300 words) for this interview with Pope Shnuuda. Your introduction will be posted on the web site and should aim to help familiarize the listeners with the Copts in Egypt and Pope Shnuuda and provide a broader context for this TV interview. You will need to research the topic, decide how you want to approach the topic and organize it, and stay within the set word limit.

In this assignment, what skills are students being asked to practice? Think of other skills that could be covered in a post-listening activity.
