We have 2 ears and one mouth so that we can listen twice as much as we speak.
Being a good speaker requires a great deal of skill. Like you rightly said, using the teacher as an example, I feel being a great listener is a lot easier than being a great speaker/orator. I could be wrong but that’s what I think.
Back then in high school, we had some subjects taught by some “lullaby” teachers. Once they step into a noisy class, before you know what’s happening, the class becomes as quiet as a graveyard Such classes are usually not interactive. I think it boils down to the saying that: “you become good at what you do when you enjoy it”.
