THE ACCOLADE TO BEING ATTENTIVELY LISTENED TO With the beginning of education, one is taught, requested, and expected to listen attentively most of the time when in class, and later in life at meetings and various types of gatherings. Two of COED " s definitions of the verb listen – important for this paper, are a) to give one " s attention to a sound and b) to make an effort to hear something, as they navigate us to investigate the obstacles for the realization of the former and the reasons for making the effort to hear, stated in the latter. In our research, we have discarded the physical obstacles as well as the obstacles due to reading and hearing deficiency or handicap. We turned to the obstacles disturbing the attention necessary when listening to loud reading of longer texts such as news articles, scripts of speeches, essays, and stories. The loud reading competences are not for language teachers and learners only but for all language users for there always comes a time when each of us has something to read or say before an audience: familial, educational, social, or peer one. With the utterance competence tightly related to the reading introduced here, it must be pointed out that loud reading competences mastered with all its prosody and stylistic elements enable one to become a master of the speaking competences, as well, and thus confident and sure of being attentively listened to and understood. In that sense the focus of our research was to analyze the loud reading competences of Foreign Language Teaching, Preschool Teaching and Class Teaching students. The results of this research produced evidence that loud reading competences act as a primal prerequisite for the development of speaking competences appreciated for bestowing an attentive ear, i.e. improving all sorts of knowledge oral exchange, highly significant for future educators and any language users.
