As we all know, learning language has four basic skills: listening, speaking, reading and writing. We can't ignore any of these skills. Of these four skills, listening is the most important. All language learning starts with listening. No input, no output. That is to say, without hearing it is not said. In people's communication, the use of listening and speaking is more than that of the other two skills. In the traditional English teaching model, teachers and students in Beijing use most of the time to recite grammatical rules and analyze sentence structures in order to achieve high scores in the exam. The result is that the students' communicative competence is low. This is mainly attributed to the traditional English teaching model: overemphasizing the rules of learning grammar and the fixed form of writing, but ignoring the cultivation of the two abilities of listening and speaking.
Language is the most important purpose of learning English, because learning language is used to communicate. Every morning, students can communicate in English in groups. Students can also communicate in English in class. This exercises the ability of students to a great extent.
Learning English, listening and speaking is the key, especially in junior high school English learning stage. We should correct the past emphasis on reading and writing instead of listening and speaking, and focus on listening and speaking. This is not to say that we can only pay attention to reading and writing but only listening and speaking. Because speaking from the rule of language learning, listening and speaking is more important. Listening is the expression of language and the expression of thinking. This is the basic form of communication between the brain and the outside world. But both hearing and speaking need the active participation of the brain. Therefore, listening and speaking is the best way to train the brain to think in a foreign language. Language is not only the form of thinking, but also the tool of thinking.
Listening and speaking can be trained at the same time. Listening is the input of the language. The spoken language is the output. There is not enough input, that is, listening practice, it is impossible to have the output of language, that is, oral expression. The two are complementary and indispensable.
As long as you listen and speak everyday, you can learn to speak. And then it's easy to write. So we need students to spend a lot of time listening, speaking, reading and writing exercises, so it is no longer difficult to learn any language well.
What is necessary is to listen to English everyday and guarantee 10 minutes a day. So, hearing can be improved gradually. It is obvious that listening and speaking play a very important role in English learning.
