Listening is the ability to accurately receive and interpret messages in the communication process. Listening comprehension is key to a productive communication. Without the ability to listen effectively, messages are easily misunderstood. As a result of this, communication might break down and both parties involved can become easily frustrated at the failure of sending and receiving the message across accurately. If there is one communication skill you should aim to master first, it is listening.

This module on listening is divided into two parts. This first part covers recognizing the main idea and its supporting details while the second part discusses how to distinguish facts from opinions. Determining and knowing where to find the main idea is important in understanding the message of the communicator. It is also essential in summarizing the writer’s or speaker’s message. Sequencing, a process of extracting and organizing the ideas and its supporting information, is a key component in your reading and listening comprehension. It allows you to synthesize information and arrange it accordingly.

  • recognize main/key ideas;
  • recognize main points/key sentences and supporting ideas/details in text listened to;

Lesson 2 – This is where I stand.

At the end of this lesson, you will be able to:

  • summarize the information from a text heard;
  • summarize important points/information discussed from various text types listened to; and
  • determine the stand of the speaker on a given text listened to/explicit in statements made.

Lesson 3 – Just follow Me.
At the end of this lesson, you will be able to:

  • sequence a series of events/at least 3 events using signal words/mentioned in the text listened to;
  • follow a set of oral/verbal instruction/direction (2-3 steps) in a process in everyday life situations; and
