Reynaldo has been listening. He has paid careful attention to Polonius’ language and quotes almost everything he has said in the last few lines. Not everyone can do this. Sometimes a person can give you the gist of what you said. Sometimes they’ve tuned out and can give you no help at all. Only the rare listener will be able to reflect back your exact phrasing. It’s comforting to know, though, that this is a muscle that can be trained – that close listening is a skill not a trait . . . it gives a person hope to imagine a world of listeners as expert as Reynaldo.
