Acquiring skills in talking and listening

Talking and listening forms an integral part of a student’s education. Our main means of communicatingwith the world is through speaking. Children of today generally spend hours being passively entertained by TV and computer games. Therefore, it is vital that during their time at school, students acquire skills in talking and listening and practise them in a variety of situations.

Obtaining these skills means not only do students learn to converse more freely, but hopefully they will gain confidence in speaking so that they can communicate more effectively, for example, in giving their own point of view, giving instructions, requesting information, giving a speech, discussing topics with peers, having conversations, talking about personal experiences and telling jokes.
