Even this challenging situation would ease
If you just know how to speak, you can never succeed. ' Listening is an art, which if developed within itself, it can make the stairs of success in life easier. The person who possesses the art of listening or 'listening skill' is always successful in communicating better with others.
Listening is a complex communication process, which is more than just listening to sound waves. During this time, the physical and mental achievement of the speaker and the listener, the correct rendering of the message by the speaker to the listener, the message is remembered and the response of the listener is very important.
Good listeners always take their work from the talk of the speaker.
* Good listeners pay attention to the message and meaning of the speaker rather than the manner or style of the speaker, while people generally pay attention to the way the speaker talks.
* Good listeners listen to the speaker until it is complete and try to connect the speaker's message with their old information whereas normal people are just listening.
* A good listener not only listens but also pays attention to the tone of the speaker and the intensity of the voice and after the talk is over, he considers it and remembers his work.

Knowledge is power.
Coming to learning a new language, you will get a good grip on the language when you talk that language freely. That is why we should practice reading and speaking also in addition to hearing and reading. You have to practice reading the books in that language and you should hear when people are speaking in that and we should also converse in that language. Then we will get a good grip on the language,
Another point to follow is to think in the language we want to learn. Generally, we will be using our mother tongue as media for our thinking, if we can do that process in the language you want to learn your knowledge in that language will improve.
"Life is easier when you enjoy what you do"
Knowledge comes when hearing people with good knowledge. So we have to listen. But when we have to convey something, react to something or impart knowledge to others then we have to speak. Wherever a two way interaction is needed it needs both speaking and listening. How much in each depends on the persons, their relative positions and hierarchy, their relative knowledge on the matter dealt etc. It is a human tendency to speak more and want others to hear us more. But practical reality is different and we have to learn and adapt to realities.
As mentioned by many members that if we want to learn any new language, we need to first listen. It can be by listening from the native speaker, watching movies or listening to documentaries or radios or any talk or even news, then we need to learn words and its equivalent, its pronunciation and then try to speak with people who know it so that we will be able to know our fault and correct it which will help in learning it well. Only listening or reading may not help to learn a new language unless it is spoken to know its correct usage and pronunciation.
