i personally learn best with little to no talking, and feeling it done correctly on me. the next best is seeing it done, but there are subtle things you don't see (as a beginner?) that you can feel (e.g., you see where Sensei's hands and feet are placed, may even notice the subtle hip turn, but have no idea where the energy just went in the throw unless you feel it yourself). there are times of course when i feel it, but can't quite get my body to do it, but that just means i need to practice it (and get thrown) a lot more; lectures on it rarely helps me. i often find the partners who like to talk the most are the ones who are most likely to resist connecting with their partner--perhaps they lean toward talk because they don't feel it...
