Listening Comprehension

20 March 2017Földvári Erika

Learning is most effective when information reaches students through as many different channels as possible. Learning styles and the ways information is received may vary. Therefore, teachers must prepare carefully to be able to elaborate on different topics. mozaBook makes explaining the material significantly easier and decreases the amount of time spent on preparation.

In mozaBook, the auditory and visual learning tools are merged perfectly with each other. The teacher can complement these by creating additional exercises and using the Test Editor. This way, all students with different learning styles will be part of an effective and fun learning process. In particular, it is outstanding that the materials are available to students for learning at home as well.

In school, a considerable amount of time is spent with students listening to the teachers’ presentations, which is the more conventional way of delivering information in the classroom. However, in order for students to be able to recognize the essence of the text and  memorize key information, they need to learn the correct technique to do so. mozaBook’s built-in content, such as 3D animations and videos provide superior help with this.
