helps you to understand.  It is a very important skill.  Sometimes, directions are given that you must listen to.  For example, you want to play the new game you got for your birthday but you don't know how.  Your sister offers to read the directions to you.  What will listening to her do for you? If you listen to her as she reads the directions, you will understand how to play the game.
