Hear English Everywhere
Speak lots of English with your friends, both natives and foreign nationals. If you want to speak English better in the future, speak it as much as possible Now!
There are many ways of hearing English in almost all countries of the world.
You can receive English language radio in most countries. Two of the best international networks are the BBC World Service and Voice of America. Both of them have special programmes for learners of English.
TV is an excellent resource for hearing and listening to English. The pictures help you understand what is being said. When you are watching T.V. observe the mouth movements of the speakers. Repeat what they are saying, imitating the intonation and rhythm of their speech.
Songs in English are everywhere, even on foreign-language radio and TV stations. Listen to them often.
Make it a habit to go to English films. If you need to read the sub-titles, at least you’ll be hearing English even if you don’t understand it.
Computer has one really great advantage. You can hear/watch repeatedly by replaying them. If there are sub-titles, you can cover them with paper and you can record programmes from Radio/ television and then watch them several times to improve your understanding.
Try to make friendship with English – speaking people so that you can practice your English through conversation. This will serve as an exercise for your speaking as well as listening.
Finally, don’t worry if you don’t understand everything you hear.Hearing comes first! Understanding comes next! Even if you don’t understand everything, you will still be learning.
