THE IMPORTANCE OF EXTENSIVE LISTENING IN ENGLISH
Oral communication as a process consists of two components: listening and speaking.
In addition to pronunciation, grammar, vocabulary, and style, individuals listen to and pick up on the various accents and oddities of English usage used in real-world situations by native English speakers in various English-speaking countries (formal and informal English).
Additionally, listening comprehension in English can encompass both hearing and expressing information about a number of subjects, as well as a broad vocabulary (for example in listening to dialogues, discussions, debates, interviews, narrations, etc.).
Following exposure to English materials and programs, it is recommended to practice speaking and debating in English.
To construct effective sentences in English, a learner’s pronunciation, grammar, vocabulary knowledge, and consideration of word and phrase choices must all be combined (as well as solid listening comprehension abilities when chatting). Even natural English speakers may struggle in some instances to express themselves clearly, precisely, and appropriately. Many people (including native speakers) lack the ability to communicate effectively and persuasively using the most pertinent terms. As a result, non-native speakers find speaking English more challenging than listening comprehension in English. Foreign English learners have more opportunities to practice English listening comprehension than they do for English speaking.
The previous points may help explain why the majority of students find it easier to practice and enhance their listening comprehension abilities than it is to improve their English-speaking talents.
Making language games for your Learning Circle is a fun way to practice your language skills.
Many people like solving crossword puzzles in their native tongue. Maybe your local newspaper includes puzzles and quizzes that you enjoy doing on a daily basis? Adapting puzzles to practice English is one method to make language learning entertaining. You can play a seemingly unlimited number of games in this manner. If you all adore sports, for example, you may have each group member write 5 questions regarding sports in English on a separate sheet of paper, with the answer on the back. You may then conduct a team quiz using these questions. Try to recall all the puzzles and games you enjoy in your native tongue, then play them in English with your Learning Circle. Individual members of the group can be encouraged to create puzzles that can then be passed on to other members. In 5 simple steps, learn how to construct a Word square.
A Word square is the type of puzzle seen above. Making your own word square is a fun way to improve your vocabulary while also putting your Learning Circle members to the test! They’re quite easy to create.
- Decide on a topic. This can be anything as easy as sports, hobbies, or countries, or it can be anything relevant to your profession or studies.
- Come up with roughly ten terms that are connected to this issue that you’d like to put in your word square.
Consider how many squares you’ll need before filling in the words square. If each line of your word square only contains 10 boxes, 11-letter words will not fit!
- In the square, write your words. Remember to write some horizontally, some vertically, and some diagonally if possible.
You should start by doing this in pencil to ensure that you can fit all of your words in.
- Fill in the other empty boxes with letters, like in the example above, and write a clue for each word for extra practice.
- Assemble your completed word square and distribute it to other members of your Learning Circle. Tell them the topic and see if they can come up with any terms on their own.
