A good listener will listen not only to what is being said, but also to what is left unsaid or only partially said. Effective listening therefore involves observing body language and noticing inconsistencies between verbal and non-verbal messages, as well as what is actually being said at any given moment. Active listening also branches into social-emotional development and promotes mindful-thinking which can reduce anxiety and depression in students and promote empathy- a skill that can enrich a student’s life both in and outside of the classroom.

The students of  CBSE VIB had a language competence session through a Listening task. All the students participated virtually as well as physically in this listening activity conducted in the hybrid mode. Later they have shared their views and ideas about why it is important to have such listening tasks. It was indeed a good learning experience for all.
