A 【导学号:52384073】

The most important   3   of poor listening is giving in  to distractions (分心的事物) and letting our thoughts   4  .Sometimes,however,we listen too   5  .We try to  remember every word a speaker says,and we lose the   6    message by concentrating on details.In other situations,we  may jump to conclusions and   7   a speaker without hearing out the message.Finally,we often judge people by their   8   or speaking manner   9   listening to what they say.
You can   10   these poor listening habits by taking  several steps.First,take listening   11   and commit yourself to becoming a better listener.Second,work at being a(n)   12   listener.Give your undivided attention to the speaker  in a genuine effort to   13   her or his ideas.Third,  14    distractions.Make a conscious effort to keep your mind on  what the speaker is saying.Fourth,try not to be   15   by appearance or delivery.  16   preconceived (事先形成的) judgments based on a person's looks or manner of speech.Fifth,suspend (延缓) judgment   17   you have heard the speaker's entire message.Sixth,  18   your listening by paying attention to main points,to evidence,and to the speaker's  techniques.Finally,develop  your  note­taking skills.When done   19  ,note taking is an excellent way to improve your concentration and to keep track of a speaker's   20  .It almost forces you to become a more attentive and creative listener.

Sometimes we talk about a very simple term—like the word “take”.But“take” is not as simple as it   21  .In fact,the Oxford English Dictionary calls it one of the “elemental words of the English language”.

The phrase  “to take it out on someone or something” means “to   27   anger at someone or something”.It is  a   28   of misplaced anger.Another website says this expression was first   29   in 1840.
Let's say your friend who lost his job.He is   30   and shouts at you for something unrelated.You can say to him,“Look,I   31   you're upset.But don't take it out on me.I didn't   32   you!”
Taking it out on someone is very different from having give­and­take with someone.Give­and­take is the process that   33   sides go through to reach a(n)   34  .It's a compromise.Both sides   35   something they want but also take something they want.Give­and­take can   36   mean the act of exchanging ideas or comments.
If you are simply taken by someone,you either show complete respect for or are   37   in love with the person.  38  ,“She is really taken by the new man in the office.He is all she talks about!”
