"88% of parents say that a good education goes beyond exam results." (Parent kind survey)
September - This month our focus skill is Listening.
Make it your mission to listen carefully all day today. You could listen to a story, a podcast, the lyrics of a song, a news report on the TV or radio or a conversation. Choose one thing you have listened carefully to and tell someone else about it, making sure you include the important information.
Getting Started: How can you make sure you are listening carefully?
Intermediate: What does it mean to summarise what you have heard?
Advanced: How does the speaker use tone to persuade you as the listener?
Mastery: How can you identify the core points being made?
