On listening

Part of today’s STARTALK course is to watch a TED talk and read an article, both on listening. Julian Treasure says that we should be teaching listening in schools. I think that those in the TPRS community have found a way to do that. I now hope that I can figure out a way to do so in an online class.

The article is by a 17-year-old who offers a way to improve listening comprehension and thus improve language acquisition. I’d love to talk more, but my assignments are due. More later, if I can!
