Assignment #3 ESL 155 2. Depending on the listener’s interest, any kind of topic may be boring or interesting equally. Personally, I got bored in conversations when a speaker is talking all about himself, in this way showing disinterest, as well as disrespect towards me. In classes I’m trying to appreciate any kind of topic, since the academic genre is sometimes supposed to be presented in the meager and scientific style. 3. First of all, these kind of topics should be interesting for opponents. Secondly, topics should be arguable. In other words, they should be susceptible to debate, challenge, or doubt. 6. I find listener's excessive motions, as well as not keeping an eye contact, distracting. I don't like being interrupted. 7. I try to put out all the potentially distractive things out of my sight. I don't look at others who enter or leave the room. Also my concentration improves when I'm using a good posture, such as sitting up straight, yet comfortably. Good posture aids breathing and alertness.
