    The importance of communication. We can't read the screen so have no idea what he is referring to. "Here's what my Chinese student said" …audience laughs, we see Mr Lynch .. ? I suppose we can use our imagination. Not very professional is it ?

    It's only my point of view, I believe that if you want to follow a lecture at university, you need to be able to understand advertising on tv. That's why two of the main skills to improve are not only listening and vocaburaly but also your speed of comprehension.
    It may happend that the same information when it is being transmited faster it will be more difficult to be understood, which leads to frecuent breakdowns of comunacation.
