Paying Attention and Listening Are Essential to Do Well in School

Good listening skills are a must in all areas of life, and they play an especially important role in an academic environment. Since many students have difficulty when it comes to listening skills and paying attention, they tend to have problems in school as well as in other areas. In order to combat this we want to share a few simple tricks that can help students improve their listening skills and learn to pay attention.

Simple Tricks to Help You Listen and Pay Attention Better

  • Stay focused. In order to listen to a lesson, you need to actually pay attention. Paying attention is when you actually maintain a level of focus. This can be the tricky part because it is easy to lose focus and just start hearing noise instead of actively listening. The best way to make sure you pay attention is to keep yourself interested in the subject.
  • Tell yourself you are interested. No matter what the subject is or how difficult it sounds, just tell yourself that you are interested. Even if it sounds like a lie, keep telling yourself that until you make your mind believe it. Every time you feel like you are getting lost or your thoughts are wandering off just tell yourself, ¨This is interesting.¨
  • Ask questions to make yourself interested. Now, in order to actually make yourself believe that you are interested, you need to do something to prove it. This is where you need to actively ask questions. Yes, just ask questions. Turn what you are listening to into questions for yourself or ask a few out loud to the teacher. Even if you think the questions you ask are dumb, they will keep you focused.
