Key Concepts 2 present academic material students will encounter in a higher education setting, including discipline-based lectures, academic vocabulary, and structured speaking activities. Students gain not only academic knowledge but also valuable note-taking skills that are necessary to succeed in college. These combined skill sets build students' confidence with academic information while giving them ample opportunity to interact with each other and the instructor. The format for listening activities in both texts supports the listening section of the TOEFL, the standardized English competency test for native speakers of other languages, and prepares students for further assessment and proficiency testing. The texts present 240 of the most frequently used vocabulary words from the Academic Word List to help students master the vocabulary used in academic texts across a variety of disciplines. Content-based lessons introduce students to key concepts from major academic disciplines such as humanities, communications, biological sciences, social sciences, history, and business. Listening, note-taking, and group-work activities enable students to practice key skills necessary to college success. Short dialogues and university lectures throughout both texts help students listen for and understand academic English. Exercises based on the TOEFL format and language increase confidence in preparing for the TOEFL listening section.
