Oral Language & Listening Comprehension

Updated: Jan 28, 2021

How do you build the foundational skills for reading comprehension and written expression?

Neuhaus Education Center's Oral Language & Listening Comprehension workshop has everything you need to build a solid oral language base, whether you're working with individuals, small groups, or whole classes.

Oral Language & Listening Comprehension is designed for students of just about any language level (ESL to native speaker) and learning style (mainstream, learning differences, or special needs).

Are you a classroom teacher, SENCo, tutor, or parent? Are you wondering how to systematically and explicitly build a strong oral language base?

Why Focus on Oral Language?

Having oral language allows students to:

  • Instantly recognize words they are decoding.

  • Attach meaning to words that are decoded.

  • File, store, and retrieve words and world knowledge.

  • Create vivid mental images.

  • Engage in inner dialogue so students can check their comprehension.

  • Use contextual clues more efficiently and effectively.

What You Will Receive

The 5 hour workshop will be conducted live over Zoom, led by Neuhaus Education Center's internationally certified instructors. All materials will be provided, as well as a 45 minute group follow up discussion to help you apply The Colors & Shapes of Language with your own students.

Oral Language & Listening Comprehension workshop hours are recognized CEU credits for the International Dyslexia Association (IDA) and the Academic Language Therapists Association (ALTA).

  • Colors & Shapes of Language Manual with CD
