Improve your listening skill

Posted on: June 17, 2010

It’s difficult to understand people when they speak English very quickly. The best way to learn to understand faster speech is to practice listening to it.

Get an English movie that you love. Choose one scene. Turn off the subtitles in your own language. Then listen to the scene over and over.

At first all the words will run together, but as you keep listening, you will begin to hear the spaces between words. This will help you hear each word more clearly.

Let your eyes help you. Watch the faces and actions of the actors. These will help you understand the words. When we’re listening to people, we always use their actions and emotions to help us understand.

Listening is an art…… It can be fun, not work. Relaxation is a key. Practice is the key to relaxation.
