Teaching Listening

Introduction

  There are four basic skills in any language; receptive skills- reading and listening, and productive skills- speaking and writing. All are equally important and whenever possible we should try to incorporate all of them into our lessons if we want to have a balanced approach. Often we will want to focus more on one particular skill but still bring others in to create an " integrated "skills lesson.


  In this part I will focus more on productive skills; speaking and writing. While speaking and writing are substantially different in many ways, they both are used for the same purpose- to communicate.


  In many ways writing is the most neglected skill in the TEFL world " teaching English as a foreign language", as many teachers don't like to see the classroom hours devoted to what is often 'quiet time'. Writing, therefore, is often relegated to homework, which in turn is frequently not done so the skill is never developed. It is true that most students prefer to focus on their speaking skills but this doesn't mean that writing should be ignored. In many ways writing is the more difficult skill, requiring a greater degree of accuracy. When speaking, any misunderstanding can be cleared up' on the spot', whereas this is not possible in writing. Speaking, on the other hand, requires a greater degree of fluency as the speaker will rarely have time to think and plan an answer.
