Receptive language skills were the main topic of this unit where it was presented in ?terms of different aspects. The first part was introducing reasons for reading and ?listening (i.e. purposive and general [for pleasure]). The second part was an account ?for how we read and listen (i.e. predictive, scanning, skimming, [extensive and ?intensive readings], etc.). After that, problems with teaching the receptive skills and ?some proposed strategies for dealing with?were presented (e.g. pre-teaching ?vocabulary, careful selection of teaching materials, etc.).
