What did you miss?

Add description

Now that we have listened for gist and understand the main points from the video, it is important that we listen again and try to focus on the detail that we might have missed the first time around.

When you are listening to a lecture it is a good idea to quickly write down any words or information you don’t understand so that you can spend time finding the definitions for these words after the lecture and use these words to complete your understanding of what has been said.

Watch the video again. This time, focus on the detail and make a note of any words you don’t understand.
