Reduction of Languange

I find in my teaching that sometimes kids just aren’t listening. It’s not that they aren’t hearing what I’m saying, they just aren’t listening for the details they would need to be successful on their own without my voice guiding them. The Daily Prompt suggests that people would never understand each other unless language was reduced to seven words. I would argue that it is possible to communicate without words, and sometimes I teach classes silently in order to encourage more deep engagement because they have to work extra hard to understand what I am asking them to do.

But in the spirit of the prompt, I think that I would reduce my language to the following words:

Respect, Wait, Relax, Concentrate, Go, Come, and Congratulations.
