Quest Listening and Speaking in the Academic World, Book 1 (Paperback)
by
Pamela Hartmann(K-30), Laurie Blass

Book Description
Quest is a three level reading and writing series that prepares ESOL students for the rigors of college academic coursework. This series differs from other content-based ESOL series in that it incorporates material typically covered in college-level general education courses and contains a variety of academic areas including biology, business, U.S. History, psychology, art, cultural anthropology, American literature and economics. Quest parallels and accelerates the process that native English speakers go through when they study core subjects in high school. By previewing typical college course material, this book helps students get "up to speed" in terms of both academic content and language skills. The Reading and Writing books combine high-interest material from newspapers and magazines with traditional academic source materials such as textbooks. The series is comprised of three levels: Book 1: High-Beginning - Low- Intermediate, Book 2: Intermediate - High Intermediate, and Book 3: Low-Advanced - Advanced. There is a companion Quest: Listening and Speaking series for same three levels.


Chapters in the Quest Listening and Speaking books follow a consistent 5-part chapter structure that builds in difficulty and blends listening and speaking skills within the context of a particular academic area. Part One introduces the chapter topic with a short reading, discussion questions, and a journal writing activity. Part Two, Everday English, features practice in listening to conventional English. These lively conversations and interviews appear on video as well as audio cassette, and feature a group of college students in a variety of different situations. Part Three, The Mechanics of Listening and Speaking, contains contextualized practice in areas such as stree and intonation, pronunciation, and language functions. Part Four, Broadcast English, features authentic radio pieces from well known sources such as NPR, Christian Science Monitor, and Marketplace. Part Five, Academic English, features authentic college lectures. As students listen, they gain valuable practice in note-taking skills.
