The reason this is the analogy that I chose is because best friends listen when their best friend is speaking. If people are only doing oral skills, it might not include much attention to the elements of the sounds of the language - the bits and pieces - even if they do some work on pronunciation.

The good level of fit as indicated by the results of exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis studies; the good level of internal consistency coefficients observed both in the whole of the scale and in the context of the factors and variables show that the scale developed in this study which can be used to determine the level of foreign language listening anxiety is an original, reliable and valid instrument. Basically, our current level of understanding from research on linguistic diversity indicates that all learners develop literacy in similar ways Weber, 1991.
