Teaching English Language Skills: A Foundation Course in Educational Linguistics



Listening is an essential communication skill. The
task of listening effectively requires being familiar
with the various aspects and intricacies' of this allimportant
skill. If you are not familiar with them,
particularly as a second or foreign language learner
learning to use English for local and international
communication, you will find it extremely difficult to
follow discussions at seminars, lectures, speeches, and
during conversations. You will also not find it easy to
understand what people say to you or to others.
Similarly, your response to what people say to you will
be affected by your inability to listen well.
