Listening comprehension is one of the important skills that learners must master for communicating in English. Without good listening comprehension skill, learners will find difficulties when they engage in the daily conversation using English.

The possible cause might be the tedious learning atmosphere in the class. Being a student who attended the listening comprehension class, I felt the atmosphere of learning was dreary.
Peer Pressure Why is peer pressure so irresistible? Can we not control our judgments on what we do and say? Many teens struggle on their daily life, whether it being alcohol or smoking, or just even the words that come out of a person’s mouth. Many people start their own interventions to help these teens that struggle to end this peer pressure. However, most of these influences don’t work because of the idea that people think its okay to do these things because they are just telling us not to, not that we have to go by their words.
Solving other problems Clear objectives and procedures will steer a group around many obstacles, but they cannot protect a group from every decision making problem. An effective and democratic group will continue to experience some difficulties, but it will recognize, address, and sometimes (but not always) solve these problems. Keeping Meeting Short One of the most notorious problems of group decision making is long meetings. When meetings last too long, group members become frustrated, impatient, and too tired or distracted to think clearly. If long meetings become typical for a group, members may begin to show up late or skip meetings.
Reflection: Foundations of Oral Communication Communicating and getting my ideas across, I have always struggled with. One of the biggest challenges I faced was that I do not always say what I mean. As a result, public speaking is something that does not come easy to me; it is something that intimidates me. Standing in front of a crowd and presenting my thoughts was something I tried to avoid at all costs. Why?
INTRODUCTION Language is a meaning of communication in everyday life. Most people have little regard of the speaking ability as significant as linguists do. They take it for granted and think that speaking and understanding is only as natural as breathing.

English is taught in order to master four skills in English, they are listening, speaking, reading and writing. Jeremy Harmer states on his book English Language Teaching “...we use language in terms of four skills- reading, writing, speaking and listening. These are often divided into two types. Receptive skills is a term used for reading and listening, skills where meaning is extracted from the discourse.
Furthermore their interest in reading is minimized as they cannot get the essence of what the text is saying. As the consequences, the students’ participation in English literary activities is the minimum. Teacher has to force the students to participate. One of the reasons for this limitation is, there are not many teachers who are well trained in the teaching of English phonetics in specific. This drawback has huge impact on reading and speaking ability of the students.
