Listening

Listening skills are being developed here all through TIPS, Resources and thousands of Podcasts and activities. So, let's go and listen to English!

Tip 1:

Listen to podcasts about subjects which are Interesting, relevant and useful for you. If you are into Politics, for example, you could listen to BBC News. If you like fashion, you can listen to fashion podcasts like Oh Boy by Man Repeller series of podcasts on Fashion through i-Tunes.

Tip 2:

Podcasts, what good resources they are! You can listen to them any time anywhere – at your desk or while you’re on the move. What better way to pass the time during a long commute than by immersing yourself in an entertaining podcast?

With a little dedication, Podcasts will help you quickly improve your listening skills and proficiency. One perk (benefit) is that podcasts often have transcripts (a written version of the audio). This means that you can listen and read at the same time, or look at a transcript if one part of a podcast confuses you.

You may also love the combination of reading, watching and listening. English language videos are available through the internet, and they may have great subtitles to make learning easier.
