A. Write down five main ideas that you think will be
mentioned in the text:

1-------------------------------------------------------------------------
2-------------------------------------------------------------------------
3-------------------------------------------------------------------------
4-------------------------------------------------------------------------
5-------------------------------------------------------------------------

B. Discuss your prediction with a partner and then write down at least two more ideas that your partner included in his/her list of predictions and that you consider logical possibilities:

6-------------------------------------------------------------------------
7------------------------------------------------------------------------

C. Listen (first listening) to the text. Place a check mark beside the ideas that you (A) and your partner (B) predicted and that were in fact mentioned in the texted.
And write down any other ideas that you had not predicted but were mentioned.

8-----------------------------------------------------------------------
9-----------------------------------------------------------------------
10----------------------------------------------------------------------

D. After verifying your predictions and discussing your listening results with your partner, listen (second listening) to the text again to check your results and to resolve any discrepancies in comprehension between you and your partner. Add any further points and important details that you may not have understood during the first listen:

1-------------------------------------------------------------------------
2-------------------------------------------------------------------------
3-------------------------------------------------------------------------
4-------------------------------------------------------------------------
5-------------------------------------------------------------------------

E. Listen to the text a third time to verify comprehension after a class discussion of the content of the text or a reading of the text transcript. Try to apply a “Critical Listening” when you listen by thinking of what, why, how, when and where?

Reflection and Goal-Setting

I was successful in anticipating (----?---) ideas :

What surprised me?

----------------------------------------------------------

What I will do next time?

Al-Fatiha [1:1] - Tanzil Quran Navigator

Al-Fatiha [1:1] - Tanzil Quran Navigator:


Welcome to teaching and researching second language (L2)foreign language (FL) Listening.

For advanced Muslim's students who want to finish reading Qur'an in Ramadan here is the plan:

The Qur'an has 600 pages approx ( exactly 604). If you divide it on 30 days, that is 20 pages per day.
It sound too much? that is difficult to do right?
But if divide it on the 5 prayers a day, it gets easier.
If you read 4 pages after every Salah (prayer) in Ramadan then you have completed the Qur'an.
Furthermore, if you want to complete the Qur'an twice, you read 4 pages before and after Salah.
