Active Listening

Stop Talking:-)

Listening is the most important thing when you are talking to someone. You cant listen if you are talking.

You have 2 ears and 1 mouth and that's what you use when you are talking to someone.

Practicing Active Listening

Concentration is important because you need to concentrate on the speaker who is talking to you. Eliminate any distractions.

Understanding

You need to make sure that you are paying attention enough to understand what the speaker is saying. A good listener is someone who understands what the speaker is saying as the the speaker intended it.

Notes

Taking notes is one of the best skills of understanding something. Note important information that you need to know. Focus of the main things you need to know such as key terms, and do not try and write every single word.

Write down questions or concerns but do not interrupt the speaker, ask them at a appropriate times.

Barriers

Don't talk to someone else while the speaker is talking, its rude and disrespectful. Turn all phones or electronics off because it could be a distractions.
