It means that it is a skill that is often ignored. Some teaching methods focus on speaking and underestimate the importance of listening.

"If we don't bother to learn how to listen then we'll never learn how to talk."

Guess where I got that from.

Well, I don't want to write an essay, but if I had it to say it again I would rephrase that statement. We are born with the ability to observe the world around us. Look at babies. They are always watching everything. We know how to listen before we learn how to talk. We should never forget that listening is as important as talking.
