CONCLUSION
Listening is an important language skill. It involves listening to how words are pronounced and arranged in a sentence. Apart from learning listening skills or making listening practices in the classes, the only way learners can practice listening is by speaking English among themselves. Also learners can practice listening in the following ways:
  • Watching teacher as he/she speaks.
  • Listening to various English Talks like school morning talks, class conversations and the like.
  • Listening to the debate speeches.
  • Watching other people as they speak English (At home, markets, church, seminars, conferences etc)
  • Listening to the English songs.
  • Listening to the English news.
  • Listening to the English speeches.
  • Listening to the English radio drama.
  • Watching English news on TV.
  • Watching English movies. 
Therefore, for a learner to be a good speaker, he/she must be a good listener. Thus, by listening, we can learn how to produce what we have heard.
