effective listening

posted by .

Your friend and you are discussing what you’re learning and one of them says the following: “Effective listening? There’s nothing to it! You just sit there and listen. And anyway, it’s passive – it doesn’t take any energy or concentration." What would you say to what your friend said?

    Would you say that it is true? I don't believe so, but I want to make sure. I would say "Not really. There is a huge difference between just hearing and listening. I listen to music while I do my school work but I don't listen to it. Hearing is not paying attention, listening is paying attention." Is that something you would possibly say?
