Among other various skills, Why Wait? also teaches listening skills to the learners. This is very important especially for English which is a foreign language. It is obvious that a good number of learners do not do well in the Primary School Leaving Certificate Examinations because of challenges with the language.
Some Why Wait? lessons require learners to listen to stories read by the teacher and act accordingly to test their listening skills as well as comprehension of the language.
The photos below show a teacher reading a story and a learner acting accordingly.
