Learning takes place all the time. Talking to your peers can give you a different perspective on an issue and help you improve your communication skills. When giving feedback to peers, use language which clearly indicates you are explaining your understanding or opinions, rather than providing absolute answers. Explain what is good about your partner's work as well as raising any questions or doubts you might have. When receiving feedback from peers, keep an open mind and listen carefully to what they say and think. Their comments will help you judge how effectively you are communicating your message.
