My challenging part was to be open-minded. Usually, I am not good on listening to other peoples or groups opinion because the problem was I am not good at understanding the language. My listening skill was fine, but my understanding skill was a little bad so I had difficulty to understand the content or the conversation. And the second problem was, I couldn’t also ask the question to them however I couldn’t understand it so my knowledge doesn’t improve well. Because of this causes, I had chosen my goal to be open minded.
For solving that problem, first I had tried to listen more to the surroundings opinion and try to catch the keyword that I could understand. I learned that however there’s a difficult word in the conversation, I could understand the content roughly. But if that difficult word is an important keyword for the conversation, I will try to check the meaning of it.
By repeating this steps, I had improved on my understanding skills so I could be open-minded to understand the surrounding opinion more.
The second solution is, to communicate more to other people. This is because if I talk more to people, the more idea or opinion will be given between the conversation. I will think sometime in the conversation, there will be other opinions in it so I could be more openminded. One of the examples is, I had talked to my classmates that I didn’t talk before. I didn’t talk to that person before because I just keep thinking that we do not have similar hobbies to talk together. But after when I take a risk and talked to that person, I knew that the person likes arts and watching movies. The genra of the movie that my classmate watches was similar as me, so from that conversation, I knew that prejudice is not good. I learn that I need to communicate first with any person before I decided what kind of people is he or she.
