Human beings are used to think that speaking has more value than listening, that is why we underestimate the importance of the last one. Listening is essential in order to break down misunderstandings between humans and build a stronger connection with society. Listening is a tool, helpful for the establishment of an empathetic and sustainable community.
The Listen First Club is designed for anyone who is willing to learn about the importance of listening in daily life. The club will be centered around the idea of listening with empathy.
We all listen differently sometimes without even noticing it. The meeting on May 20 at 8 PM MSK will cover the topic of Listening with Preference, going in depth about four major listening preferences that people hold and covering its pros and cons. If you want to find out what listening preference you have — join our meeting on May 20!
The Listen First Club is going to meet biweekly. Since every meeting will build on what was learned or practiced in a previous meeting, consider becoming a regular participant. Save the dates in your calendars — every other Thursday at 8:00-9:00 pm MSK. The number of places is limited, so book early.
These classes are best suited for adults (19-40 years old); recommended level of English: Intermediate and higher.
Introductory meetings will be facilitated by AMC volunteer Miroslava Yarkova. Miroslava is an aspiring global educator, FLEX Alumna’16, currently pursuing a BA in Contemporary Communication from LCC International University located in Klaipeda, Lithuania. She is passionate about theatre, education, volunteering, performing arts, event organization, and knowledge exchange.
