SLANT Listening

SLANT Listening Picture
Learn this method and you will be an active listener and pick up on more information

SLANT Listening is a technique which contributes to a student’s performance and enables them to take in as much detail as possible. SLANT stands for:

  • Sit up
  • Lean Forward
  • Ask and Answer Questions
  • Nod Your Head
  • Track The Speaker

Below you can find the benefits of each of the different aspects of SLANT Listening.

Sit Up

If you sit in a bad posture and you are slouching, then you are putting yourself in a bad position and you won’t be able to concentrate on what the speaker is saying. If you sit up straight, this will ensure that you become an attentive listener and will put you in the best position to retain as much information as possible.

Lean Forward

If you lean forward when listening in the classroom, then the teacher will be well aware that you are interested in learning and it creates a good image in the mind of the teacher. It also is something you should be doing in general because when you go for job interviews and other occasions, it really helps to create a good image.

Ask and Answer Questions

You need to be active in your learning so asking questions will help a lot in reinforcing knowledge and learning new things. Click here to learn the benefits of asking questions. If the teacher asks the class a question, then do not be afraid to answer them. If you are right, then it consolidates your understanding and if you are wrong, then you know what you need to improve on. Either way, you become a better student so it’s a win-win.

Nod Your Head

This may seem like it wouldn’t help your progression but it does a lot more than meets the eye. Teachers look for non-verbal communication to ensure that their lesson is being understood by the teachers. If you nod your head when you understand the lesson, then the teacher will know what stage you are at in your learning. If you do not understand, then this is where you ask questions.

Track The Speaker

You need to listen to the teacher in order to understand the lesson. Attentiveness is a skill which can take you far in life and if you are observant, then you can grow as both as a student and as a human being.

    ◇ I AM Diamond Hard and Fortunate Enough to Possess a Powerful Intellect along with Kind, Caring, Compassionate Emotions aka High EQ (Emotional Quotient) and High IQ (Intellectual Quotient); it’s Crystal Clear Clarity that Many of Us ARE Emotional and/or Intellectual Cowards…if Confronted by a ‘Troll’, ‘Negative’, ‘Argumentative’ et al Person I ALWAYS!!! Ask MySelf about My Contribution to This Less Than Ideal PsychoDynamic and then the Answer I Get is ALWAYS!!! The Same; INCOMPATIBILITY!!!…when We Get This Simple yet Complex Truth We KNOW!!! who to AVOID!!! and How to Get Them Get Rid of Us, who to TRUST!!! and who to Regularly Contact even if The Communication is InFrequent; which is Very, Very, Very Good for ALL of Our Creative/Sporting/Business Practices and Our Personal Relationships

    I wanna be the leader

    I AM The Leader!!!
    I AM The Leader!!!
    I AM The Leader!!!

    What do we do now?

    …be careful what is wished for everyone; it may manifest when least expected…

    …◇◇◇…

    ON RAGE MANAGEMENT WHETHER RAGE BE BLUE (SILENCE) OR REALLY RED (LOUD)

    ♡ Since Accomplishing Management and Control of My ANGER!!! 😠 EveryOne I Haven’t Hurt MySelf or AnyOne Else Since; it’s Crystal Clear Clarity that I Have Been a bit Clumsy in My Small, Single Living Space and Grazed and Lacerated MySelf on a Number of Different Occasions 😆😅😄😃😂😁😀😉😊 …so what’s The The Solution to This Stress and Pressure ANGER, RAGE!!! 😖😡😠 Problem; because, Clearly, a Problem is a Solution in Waiting 🤓 …but what if The Problem is Too Difficult, Too Big, to Face Right Now; it’s also Crystal Clear Clarity to Me that I Wait for The Solution to Present ItSelf in Divine Timing 😇 …the Maiming and Harming of Others is Diamond Hard EveryOne; it’s also Crystal Clear Clarity that Water is Soft and Yielding, gradually, persistently and, sometimes, INSTANTLY HARD!!! like Tsunamis or Floods; it’s Crystal Clear Clarity that Gaia KNOWS!!! and We Should ALL Pay Attention to what Really Matters 🤓😇🤗

    ◇ Our Moods EveryOne; the sooner We Comprehend That Simple yet Complex Truth The Better 🤓😇🤗

    ♡ Personally I AM More about Effort; like watching The Fat Girl Completing a 100m Sprint in 30 Seconds Impresses Me More than Usain Bolt…

    …◇◇◇…
    …♧♧♧ ..
    …♤♤♤…
    …♡♡♡…

    ON INTERNAL ENLIGHTENMENT

    ◇ I AM Aware that EveryThing and EveryOne ARE Connected at SubAtomic Levels that Some Call Goddess/Allah/God/Divine and So On; it’s Crystal Clear Clarity that Many Others ARE Asleep on Their Journey to Being Awake, Aware and Alert thereby Rediscovering Paying Attention like Children…so; ARE You Paying Attention to ALL The Signs, Signals, Synchronicities, Pointers and Guidelines that ARE There for The One and Only You or ARE You Distracted by ‘IMPORTANT GROWN UP STUFF!!!’ 🤔 ?…

    …♧♤♡…

    ON HAIKU

    ◇ Authentically Moving On

    Some Stuff Stays
    Some Stuff Goes
    Some Stuff Arrives

    …I Suggest Be Still on The Beach of 3DLife as The Time Tide Ebbs and Flows; a Tide that Laps at Our Feet Bringing Bits of The Puzzle To Us without showing the Big Picture until The Time Tidal Wave Arrives and We ARE Overwhelmed by Our ‘Success’ or ‘Failure’…a piece of Carbon under Stress, Pressure and Heat becomes Diamond Hard; when We Remember that We Can Painfully Produce Personalised Crystals InSide Our Bodies and Our Childlike Perception of ‘Magic’ Returns 🤓😇🤗

    …◇◇◇…

    ON CARBONITE TO CRYSTALLINE

    ◇ I Prefer to Be Coal on The Beach of Our 3DLiving as The Tides of Time bring Me Stuff EveryOne; then The Stress and Pressure of 3DLife Metamorphoses Me in to a Diamond

    …◇◇◇…

    ON EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION

    ♡ I NEVER!!! ‘Move On’ EveryOne; it’s for You to Decide to Quit Communication with Me ForEver 🤓 …I Totally Believe that ‘Trust’ CAN!!! be Re-Built 😀 ; it’s a Question of Building Boundaries then Gently 😎 , if necessary Aggressively 😡 , Asserting These Built Boundaries 🙄 …in summary; please take Accountability and Responsibility for Your FUCKING FEELINGS INSTEAD OF BLAMING EVERYONE ELSE!!! 😆😅😄😃😂😁😀😉😊

    …♡♡♡…

    ON RELIGION, MONEY AND MATERIALISM

    ♡ A Religious Lady, She KNOWS!!! who SHE IS!!! and, as a Gentleman, I CHOOSE!!! to NOT!!! Name Her, deleted My Lengthy Diatribe on The Relationship The Religious Have with “Mammon” then blocked Me…it’s Crystal Clear Clarity that She Claimed You NEED!!! to “Spend Money to Make Money” and I DisAgreed with “Isn’t that just “Mammon””; the MisManagement of Money as My Marvellous Mom, who is Devoutly Religious, explained when I Asked about Money Being “The Root of ALL Evil”…at least My Marvellous Mom is Genuine, Authentic and Honest about Her Biblical Perception of Money and Proud of Jesus for “Chasing The Money Changers” Out of The Temple of Her God along with Their “Greed and Avarice” and Me NOT!!! even Remotely Religious even though I Was Force Fed The Bible 😆😅😄😃😂😁😀😉😊 …so just Two Words to Conclude this Treatise; The Vatican 😇

    …♡♡♡…

    ON TEMPER; FURIOUS AND CALM

    ♡ There is SomeThing about OUR Sun, OUR Star, Bathing Gaia, Our Planet, with Radical Radiation EveryOne; it’s Crystal Clear Clarity that We Are Drawn to The Dawn that We Call SunRise and The Dusk that We Call SunSet yet The Sun is ALWAYS!!! There…how Fortunate, Blessed, Privileged et al ARE We to Have The Sun; yet We Whinge, Whine, Moan and Bitch about Money, Materialism and Our So Called Relationships…it’s so Crystal Clear Clarity that RAGE!!! is The Order of The Day; like Smiling Sweetly then Turning On A Dime and Snarling…now, please, don’t get Me Wrong; there is NOTHING!!! Wrong with Showing ‘Negative’ Emotion then Taking Time to Calm The FUCK!!! Down yet EveryThing Wrong with TAKING RAGE AND FURY OUT!!! On Others; ummm, I AM Very Badly Cooking a MeatLoaf Right Now and Grateful I Don’t Have a Wife who would be a Flea In My Ear and TELLING ME OFF!!! for ‘DOING IT ALL FUCKING WRONG!!!’ 😆😅😄😃😂😁😀😉😊

    …♡♡♡…

    ON SUICIDE

    ♡ Please do not be in a rush to die; death is a release and 3DLife is a prison with the key on the floor that we don’t observe until we sink to our knees and release ourselves…stress, pressure, diamond hard ladies; especially Moms..money driven gents; power hungry and fragile, where is the love 🤔 ? love perceived as weakness yet I am weak and I love yet if you come at me with your anger be prepared to die and return to bliss because I am 😎😇🤗 …

    ◇ Just make sure You ARE Doing what You Want To Do and NOT!!! just Paying Bills; it’s Crystal Clear Clarity that 3DLife is Best Be LIVED!!! even if it’s On The Streets, Homeless and Poor…

    ♤ Funny Really and NOT!!! in a Good Way; it’s Crystal Clear Clarity that We Seem to Have OCD (Occupational DisOrder Complex) around Money and Materialism 😆😅😄😃😂😁😀😉😊

    …♧♧♧…

    ON COMMUNICATION

    I Have Recently been TOLD OFF!!! by My Mom and Other Ladies of a Certain Age and Religion for Swearing and Cursing while KNOWING!!! They Curse and Swear Under Their Breath; many a Board, Other or Cabinet Meeting Turns The Air True Blue 😆😅😄😃😂😁😀😉😊 …funny really how Hypocritical We ARE; sad too in the context of Creative/Sporting/Business Practices and Personal Relationships…I AM a Writer; I WILL NOT!!! Be Censored 🤓 …

    …♡♡♡…

    ON AIMING

    ♧ So what’s WRONG!!! 😠 with Our World EveryOne 🤔 ? it’s Crystal Clear Clarity to Me that We AIM Our Rage 😠 at THE WRONG FUCKING PEOPLE!!! who DO NOT DESERVE!!! Such Treatment 😔 ; then We Deny, Defend, Justify and ATTACK!!! ALL The While Weeping over Our InSane InAbility to Confront Our Parents and Other Authority 😓😲😭

    …♧♧♧…

    ON LANGUAGE

    There is a Subtle Difference betwix ‘Can’ and ‘Able’ (Cain and Abel 🤔 ?); in précìs:

    ♤ ‘Can’ is The Capacity ALL Homo Sapiens Possess
    ♤ ‘Able’ is The Capacity We Develop in to Ability
    ♤ Ergo ‘I Can’ and ‘I AM Able’ ARE Different

    …so, for example; I Can:

    ♡ Climb – Basic Ability
    ♡ Cook – Intermediate Ability
    ♡ Create – Advanced Ability
    ♡ Clean – Intermediate Ability
    ♡ Curate – Basic Ability
    ♡ Communicate – Advanced Ability

    …please Take Time to THINK!!! about ‘I AM Able’ vs ‘I Can’ and why We Take Our CHOICES!!! to Develop Certain Capacity and Shy Away from Other Capacity; ask anything especially around ENVY AND JEALOUSY 😖😨😳😵😡😠!!! please…

    ♡ Look in The 3DLife Mirror EveryOne because there ARE Your Answers; Your Answers ARE in Your Questions about Others, The Monster InSide The Mirror

    …♡♡♡…

    ON GAH!!! (GENUINE AUTHENTIC HONEST WITH THE EXCLAMATION MARKS REPRESENTING THE FRUSTRATION OF FFF (FAKE, FALSE, FRAUDULENT))

    ◇ So, do We Zip Lips or Tell It as We SEE (Soulful Emotional Energy) It; feedback MOST WELCOME!!! but You ARE ALL too Cowardly and that’s OK 🤔 ?…
