Anna Sale and her podcast guests "have direct and thought-provoking conversations, discussing topics that most of us are too squeamish, polite, or nervous to bring up. But Sale argues that we all experience these hard things, and by not talking to one another, we cut ourselves off, leading us to feel isolated and disconnected from the people who can help us most. In [this book], Sale uses the best of what she's learned from her podcast to reveal that when we have the courage to talk about hard things, we learn about ourselves, others, and the world that we make together. Diving into five of the most fraught conversation topics, ... she moves between memoir, ... snapshots of a variety of Americans opening up about their lives, and expert opinions to show why having tough conversations is important and how to do them in a thoughtful and generous way"--Publisher marketing.

Applied Linguistics in Action Series Series Editors: Christopher N. Candlin, Chair Professor of Applied Linguistics, Centre for English Language Education and Communication Research, City University of Hong Kong David R. Hall, Head of Linguistics Department, Macquarie University, Sydney Teaching and Researching: Listening provides an up-to-date summary of teaching and researching listening to meet the changing needs of language and linguistics students, teachers and researchers. Firstly discussing the history, context and background to listening, it then looks at key questions which can be addressed through research and provides practical ideas for linking research issues to actual teaching practice. Michael Rost treats listening in language learning as a distinct field of inquiry, arguing that that the traditional way of including listening as part of oral language or communication studies does not give the topic adequate treatment.Teaching and Researching: Listening provides a thorough and practical treatment of both the linguistic and the pragmatic processes that are involved in oral language use from the perspective of the listener.. Through understanding the interaction between these processes, language educators and researchers can develop more insightful, valid and effective ways of teaching and researching listening. The inclusion of a broad range of ideas and practical tools for the construction of teaching and research models will engage and inform all those investigating communicative language use. Written in a highly accessible style, Teaching and Researching: Listening has a variety of learning aids and teaching resources: -definitions of key concepts in psycholinguistics -concept boxes allowing readers to review key ideas -quotes from leading figures in applied linguistics - categorisation of instructional concepts related to oral language teaching - analysis of testing practices - a range of realistic research projects, including procedural guidelines . Michael Rost is a lecturer at the University of California, Berkeley. He has been active in language teaching, program administration, and teacher training around the world for over 20 years; and has worked as a language consultant with several international associations including Save the Children Foundation, the Foreign Ministry in Japan and the Annenberg Foundation in Washington.
