Do you agree that listening skills assist in effective communication? Discuss with examples any two aspects of listening. (10) Section B (40 marks) Question 3 3.1 Read the following statement and answer the questions that follow. Mrs Chantel, a grade 1 teacher at Mkhomi Primary School, wanted to develop listening skills in her learners while they are still young. She wants her learners to engage in listening during lesson presentations. Mrs Chantel always says that when learners hear, they pay attention to sound. Advise Mrs Chantel, who is a new teacher, on how she can apply the following aspects of sound to enhance the listening skills of her grade 1 learners. 3.1.1 Change in volume (6) 3.1.2 Emphasis by stressing words (6) 3.1.3 A regular vocal rhythm (6) 3.1.4 Repetition (6) 3.2 Read the following statement and answer the questions that follow. You are a new teacher in a deep rural school. There is no electricity and learners in grade 3 hardly speak English. The parents instructed you to teach English using their mother tongue citing that if you keep on speaking in English learners will not hear you and they will fail. You immediately realise that in Module ENC1501, you learned about Multimodal communication. 3.2.1 What is multimodal communication? (1) 3.2.2.

Question 1 (5 marks) 1.1 Formal language refers to the use of standard grammar and vocabulary that is usually used in official, professional or academic circumstances. For instance, a legal document or a job application letter uses formal language to convey credibility and respect for the context it's presented in. 1.2 Teaching Didactics refers to the theory of teaching, it is how teachers create effective learning environments. For example, a teacher may design a lesson plan that includes different teaching strategies such as group work, use of teaching aids, and assessment to ensure they maximise students' understanding of a topic. Question 2 (10 marks) Yes, I agree that listening skills are essential for effective communication. The two aspects of listening I'll discuss are: • Active listening: This involves focusing entirely on the speaker, understanding their message, responding thoughtfully, and refraining from interrupting them. For example, in a class setting, when a learner actively listens to the teacher's explanations, he/she will gain a better understanding. • Empathetic listening: This requires understanding the emotions and feelings behind a speaker’s words and responding with empathy. In the context of a classroom discussion on sensitive issues, a learner who practices empathetic listening will respond in a way that demonstrates they appreciate their peers' feelings and perspectives. Section B (40 marks) Question 3 3.1 Mrs Chantel can apply the following aspects: 3.1.1 Change in volume: She can use variations in volume to maintain her learners' attention. For instance, she could lower her voice to draw learners in or raise it for emphasis. 3.1.2 Emphasis by stressing words: She can stress critical words to help the learners understand the main points. For example, in a sentence like "Washing our hands regularly is essential," stressing "washing," "hands" and "essential" helps learners pick out the key message. 3.1.3 A regular vocal rhythm: maintaining a consistent rhythm while speaking can make it easier for learners to follow along and understand her speech. 3.1.4 Repetition: Repeating key points can reinforce ideas or concepts in the learner's minds. 3.2 3.2.1 Multimodal communication is the process of communicating using multiple methods or channels like images, sounds, gestures, text etc. 3.2.2 As a teacher, you can apply multimodal communication through various methods. You can use gestures, props, visual aids, and even role play to help your students understand the lesson better. Furthermore, using the mother-tongue of the students in combination with English can help students bridge the gap between their home language and English.
