Why Listening Is Vital for Language Learners?

Many language learners focus a lot on speaking. They don’t spend as much effort on quietly listening.
Listening to a foreign language is difficult but this skill is vital for language learning. 
Research shows that when we communicate, we spend around 40-50% of our time listening, 25-30% speaking, 11-16% reading and only 9% writing (although that last one might have changed in recent years due to the rise in social media).
That means we spend about half the time listening!
The question is: Do you spend half your language learning time on listening exercises?
You probably don’t.
The solution is to spend more time listening in our second language. However, it’s vital that we learn to listen effectively.
1. Listening Is an Active Process
Listening is a very active process, despite the fact you’re not saying anything. That’s why you’re so tired when you go home after a social event in another language.
Getting over the feeling that we are “doing nothing” is a key step towards listening effectively.
One solution is to employ active listening techniques, to remind yourself and others that you’re involved in the conversation even if you don’t speak so much.
Here are some tips to show that you are actively listening:
Make eye contact with the person who’s talking.
Lean forward slightly to show interest. If you’re actually listening this should be natural.
Nod your head slightly to show you’re understanding.
Make agreeing noises and nod your head if you agree with something they’ve said.
Don’t look distracted by fidgeting, playing with your phone or looking off into the distance.                   
2. The “Silent Period” Is Golden
It’s fair to say that most adults don’t go through any silent period at all. We often try to jump straight into speaking.
The problem with trying to speak from the beginning is that a period of silent listening can actually be hugely beneficial.
One big reason is that speaking can be quite a nerve-racking experience. It can be as stressful as performing on stage. As new learners, we’re thinking so much about what we should say next that we don’t fully experience what the other person has said. We suffer from “task overload.”
Allowing yourself to be silent lets you get the most from listening.
3. Your Brain Is a Foreign Language Goldfish
Would it surprise you to learn that your short-term memory is even shorter in a foreign language?
When you think about it, it makes sense. How often have you forgotten what someone has just said in your target language? Listening is a vital step in overcoming this problem.
When we listen to someone talking, our brain starts processing the information by “segmenting” it into small chunks to store in our short-term memory. It splits them up based on our knowledge of the “rules” for how the language is spoken. Instead of storing the actual words “a green goldfish,” our brain would maybe convert those words into an image of a green goldfish for storage.
In a foreign language, we aren’t familiar with the “segmentation rules” for how the language is spoken. Our short-term memory has to store all the words individually.
One reason why listening is so important in a foreign language is that it helps us become familiar with those segmentation rules.
Learning segmentation rules is usually an unconscious process, so the easiest way to learn them is to get lots of listening practice.
Here are some ways to become more familiar with a language’s segmentation rules:
Read a book while also listening along to the audio book version.
Attend social events with natives and spend time just listening.
Listen to the radio in your target language.Watch videos online in your target language.                                                                                                          
4. The Gist Is Only Half the Story (or Less)
Finally, one thing that we often neglect when listening in another language is to check exactly how much we have understood.
Beyond a certain level of language ability, we often “get the gist” of what was said. However, sometimes we haven’t understood as much as we think.
Next time you listen to something in your target language, try these six short, easy exercises to prove to yourself that you’ve understood what was said:
Try drawing a picture of what was said.
Ask yourself some questions about it and try to answer them.
Provide a summary of what was said.
Suggest what might come next in the “story.”
Translate what was said into another language.
“Talk back” to the speaker to engage in imaginary conversation

Dear, friends! I feel terribly sad for being with you for the last time in this class room. I will miss our group activities so much. I had really great time with you.

It was very interesting period. We had a lot of beautiful moments, sometimes we were so bad, didn't do the homework, didn'y listen to the teacher, but we tried to be better. I enjoyed working with our group. Every lesson was fantastic.

Kateryna Demchyk

I am eternally grateful for everything I've learnt. I had so much fun learning English, especially when we played in groups. I enjoyed all the videos in courseblog. It was really interesting for me. I like our group, I have found new friends here.

You miss 100 % of the shots you don't take. These are the words of a well-known Canadian hockey player. This means that the result appears after active actions of the person. Intermediate course is my base for further study. It was very interesting to study together with such groupmates that will always help, support and prompt. We have done the first 100 shots.

Seven Tips for Learning New words

1. Read, read, and read. 

The more you read – especially novels, but also magazines and newspapers – the more words you'll learn. As you read and uncover new words, try to work out the  meaning from the sentence as well as from looking up the definition in a dictionary. Write down new words. Your vocabulary will sky rocket!

2. Keep a dictionary and thesaurus handy.

Use whatever versions you prefer – in print, software, or online. A good quality dictionary is one hundred times better than google translate, and electronic ones are quick! When you uncover a new word, look it up in the dictionary to get both its pronunciation and its meaning(s). Next, go to the thesaurus and find similar words and phrases – and their opposites (synonyms and antonyms).

3. Build your own dictionary.

It's a very good idea to write down the new words you discover. Just by writing them down you will start to recognise the words when you read. Plus, keeping a dictionary of all your new words will give you the confidence to learn even more words – especially when you can see how many new words you've already learnt.

4. Learn a word a day. 

Using a word a day calendar, a website, or develop your own list of words to learn. This is a great technique many people use to learn new words. Don't feel you must learn a new word every day.

5. Play some games. 

Word games that challenge you and help you discover new meanings and new words are a great tool for expanding your vocabulary. Examples include crossword puzzles, anagrams, word jumble, Scrabble, and Boggle.

6. Don't try to remember words alone

It is better (and easier) to learn new vocabulary by giving them some context. One way to do this is to remember words in a sentence. This is a great option because you will not only know the word, but you will also know exactly how to use it in conversation.

Another option is to remember words by groups. If you just learned the word “humongous” (very large), you can memorize it by thinking of a group of words getting bigger and bigger – large, huge, humongous.

7. Engage in conversations. 

Simply talking with other people can help you learn discover new words. As with reading, once you hear a new word, remember to jot it down so that you can study it later – and then slowly add the new word to your vocabulary.
