3 English Listening Practices

English can be a complicated language to learn. It’s full of strange pronunciations and unusual spellings.
One great way for English learners to improve their pronunciation and conversational skills is by using a few simple listening practices. Regular and consistent listening practice will see excellent results in the long term. If you want to improve your English listening skills, you have to find which method works best for you. Some people learn really well in a classroom, while others prefer to practice in their own time.

Read on for our top three listening practices, to help you find the one you think will suit you best…


  1. Listen to natural English conversation

When you are learning English you should try each day to listen to some natural English conversation. Where possible try to surround yourself with native English speakers so that you can really pick up conversational styles and learn the correct pronunciation.


  1. Find things you enjoy to listen to in English

You could listen to music or even watch a film in English. This is an enjoyable way to improve your English language skills on a daily basis. You can listen on your headphones on your commute to work or at home during a movie night with a friend. If you enjoy your English listening practices, you’ll be more inclined to keep on practicing and improving your English skills.


  1. Listening in a lesson

If you are learning English in a classroom setting, a great tip to improve your listening skills is to record the class on your phone. This will give you the opportunity to listen to the lesson again at your own pace and repeat anything you may not have heard correctly the first time.
