A conversation is all about give and take. This holds especially true in seminar courses, where students having lots of conversations with the people around you for the entire semester. It’s easy to talk a lot during a college seminar, and less easy to listen to others. Try to balance your speaking with listening. Hearing others’ input will help you shape your thoughts and opinions more cohesively so you can more meaningfully contribute to the conversation.
