Knowing how to listen is important for any effective communication. Whether in a lecture, tutorial, presentation or conversation you need to be able to focus on what the person wants to say and what they are asking from you. It involves several skills that can be learned.
How do I listen effectively?
How do I indicate I’m listening?
How do I know I’ve heard right?
Remember: Effective listening can be learned and improves with practice.
