Why is listening comprehension important?
Simulation of 2,000 word vocabulary:

Many persons who “talk” with their hands are blunk. 

They have doubts about what they are saying, so they
try to cover up by drolling a false parn of excitement
and urgency. These same people are usually very gruk
and may be overly talkative and speak too loudly.
Hurbish feelings are belaved by the person who tries
to keep all leeds to a monton. Such a person is nep,
purported, and lacking in self-ruck.
Fox, Len 1979. On acquiring an adequate second language vocabulary.
