Listening Power is a three-book series with a targeted approach to teaching the listening skills that students need inside and outside the classroom and on standardized tests such as the TOEFL and TOEIC.

Listening Power 1 features three distinct parts designed to be used concurrently.

Language Focus teaches essential and sometimes difficult to understand language structures such as Wh- questions, Yes/No and alternative questions, contractions, numbers and letters, and time expressions. Comprehension Focus presents skills for understanding the topic, listening for the main ideas and details, and making inferences. Activities to help students apply the skills follow the presentation. Listening for Pleasure uses interesting audio material from movies, TV, radio, and recorded storytelling to help students understand the more subtle meaning communicated through tone of voice, sentence stress, and reduced forms.
