Listening materials for advanced non-native speakers of English
Communication is the act of exchanging information, thoughts, or feeling between individuals through a common system of symbols. This exchange requires at least two participants, a sender and a receiver. In oral communication the medium used is sound; the sender speaks and the receiver listens. If the listener is unable to understand the spoken message, there is no communication. This is the situation for many non-native speakers of English in classrooms where English is the medium of instruction.
