Make academic lectures accessible to students by developing their listening and note-taking skills through a series of diverse lectures with Contemporary Topics.

The new, fourth edition of  Contemporary Topics  expands on its highly respected approach to developing academic listening and study skills. Organized around realistic college lectures, the text guides learners through carefully sequenced activities in skills such as note-taking, focusing attention, intensive listening, and vocabulary building.

Why is architect Frank Gehry's work notable? What principles should journalists be following today? What are the keys to owning a successful restaurant?

You'll find the answers to these and other questions in  Contemporary Topics 2,  which features college lectures from several academic disciplines, including architecture, media studies, and culinary arts.  Contemporary Topics 2  prepares students for the challenge of college lectures with practice in a wide range of listening, speaking and note-taking skills and strategies. The lectures (available on CD and DVD) were filmed in realistic academic setting before line student audiences.
