Disappointing feedback

One of my students came back from an absence today. He said to me, "What did we do yesterday?" I replied, "We did a series of listening activities to teach you the new vocabulary." His reply: "Oh, so nothing important."

I have failed to make it clear to my students the ABSOLUTELY VITAL role of listening comprehension in the role of linguistic development.

Back to the drawing board.
