Listening Skills -The Mantras (Part 1)


Teachers, Content Developers, Academic Coordinators, English Teachers (Middle and High), 


It is rightly said that communication is a two-way street. Yet, the most ignored skill by educators is that of Listening in the teaching of English and the focus remains on speaking or reading and writing.

Listening is the backbone of effective communication, which is listed as a 21st-century skill. Listening also ensures efficiency in transversal skills like teamwork, decision making, and negotiation. Hence, all education boards have listed objectives for inculcating listening skills, in their curriculum documents wherein different sub-skills are introduced at different levels. Moreover, all high stakes qualifying exams for proficiency in English mandate qualifying a listening skills test segment.

This is part 1 of the program, where you will learn about principles of listening skills, the process of listening skills to implement in the classroom, and various sub-skill of listening skills.
