Listening Practice

In order to improve your listening comprehension it is very important to do a bit of listening regularly. Even if you don’t understand everything, listen to the same audio file several times, and try to pick some words or expressions. Then, try at least to get the general idea or main ideas. 

Apart from doing comprehension exercises, you should also listen to the radio or watch television in English in a relaxed way, just to hear how English sounds in real situations and to improve your pronunciation, stress an intonation.
