The article states that the main purpose of listening is to receive and understand information. It is important to remember that listening compared to reading requires a higher level of attention than reading. It is not possible to return to the incomprehensible content of the conversation many times. It must be admitted that the new curriculum strategy was more focused on developing students’ reading and writing skills than the pre-curriculum strategy. The work on the formation of immediate verbal skills, including listening and speaking, was carried out unexpectedly, without a rigid system. Excellent study and implementation of widely used reading instructional strategies in recent pedagogical literature are helpful in developing students’ listening and speaking skills. It is advisable to give a wide range of use to reading with interruptions and predicted reading and so on, in the Critical Thinking Development of the Training and Writing Project (also called learning technology).
