For discourse to be comprehensible and cohesive, you have to know who does what to whom when and where. Information about entities, time, space, and actions has to be carefully tracked and managed from one utterance to the next. This is achieved through a process known as anaphoric linking or reference tracking. The importance of this phenomenon is crucial in listening classes as listening is among those demanding skills in which EFL learners have to cope with vast ranges of linguistic, paralinguistic and even pragmalinguistic features. In this regard, this book describes an innovative approach to teaching listening comprehension through employing typographically highlighted texts followed up by classroom interactions. This is termed as Interactive Input Enhancement, an instructional treatment in which the teacher pushes L2 learners to notice input and/or produce output and provides them with interactional modifications in order to lead them to notice a mismatch between their interlanguage forms and the target language forms. This book will be very useful for language teachers who are looking for novel ideas on demystifying listening comprehension for their learners.
