Humans have the capacity to listen to three times the number of words they can speak in a given length of time. In personal evangelism, there is a time to voice an opinion and a time to keep silent and a time for an effective listening skill.

Stump OratorDuring a music lesson in order to teach an effective listening skill, the teacher asked the difference between listening and hearing. At first there was no response.
