Assessment of Speaking and Listening (ASL)

AS many of you are well aware of CBSE initiative to assess the speaking and listening skills of the students as a part of their English Paper I would like to come up with some suggestions which would help many students.

The truth is quite vivid- both listening and speaking skills are two sides of the same coin. They go hand in hand. They are the foundation on which the whole super structure of any language is constructed. Language is not learnt, but it is constructed. The tips are:-

  • Listening needs involuntariness and docile mind.
  • Listening demand docile mind.
  • Listen without pre- conceptions.
  • Guess if certain words are not clear from the larger context.
