What does it mean to really listen?
Step 3

listening skills

Real listening is an active process
that has three basic steps.
1.-Hearing.

Hearing just means listening enough to catch what the speaker is saying. If you can repeat the fact, then you have heard what has been said.
2.-Understanding.

The next part of listening happens when you
take what you have heard and understand it
in your own way
3.-Judging
.
After you are sure you
understand what the speaker
has said, think about whether
it makes sense. Do you believe
what you have heard?
TIPS FOR BEING A
GOOD
LISTENER
1.-
Give your full attention on the
person who is speaking.

Don't
look out the window or at what
else is going on in the room.

2.-
Make sure your mind is focused, too.


If you feel your mind wandering,
change the position of your body
and try to concentrate on the
speaker's words.
3.-
Listen for main ideas.

They may be
mentioned at the start or end of a talk,
and repeated a number of times.

Pay special attention to statements that
begin with phrases such as
"My point is..."
or
"The thing to remember is..."
4.-
Ask questions. If you are not sure
you understand what the speaker has
said, just ask.

It is a good idea
to repeat in your own
words
what the speaker said so that
you can be sure your understanding
is correct.
5.-
Give feedback. Sit up straight and look
directly at the speaker. Now and then,
nod to show that you understand.

At appropriate points you may also
smile,
frown, laugh, or be silent.
These are
all ways to let the speaker
know that you are really
listening.
Language learning depends on
listening.


Listening provides the
aural input
that serves as the basis for language acquisition and enables learners to
interact
in spoken communication.
