- Take notes and make a presentation to a friend of what you have heard.
- Formulate some questions to what you have listened to and let a friend listen and answer the questions.
- Use the information you have listened to to start a discussion with your friends about the topic. Do you agree or disagree? What experinces of your own do you have with regards to the topic?
