I like practical advice. Let me give you an example. A week ago I was having dinner at a restaurant that I’ve been going to for a long time. I was talking with one of the waiters and I noticed that he looked thinner. So I asked, and he said he had lost 10kg. When I asked him how he did that, he said simply, “Eat less, move more.” Beautiful! So what does that have to do with improving your listening? A lot. It’s practical advice and today, I’m going to share some practical advice with you about listening skills in English. If you want to improve your listening, you need to listen to English everyday. And, my loyal readers, I have found an amazing new resource that can help you do that.
