Listening is the hardest skill to master, but I have an amazing opportunity for you!
In my view, there are 6 exercises that really work, and all of them feature in this challenge!
1. Transcription exercises
Transcription exercises are seriously effective. Play a sentence, and write what you hear. Then, read the sentence and compare your result. Over time, this trains your brain to start working in a more analytical way.
✅ Each day in this challenge you have 3 transcription exercises!
2. Real conversation clips
My pet hate (something I hate most) is when textbooks give scripted conversations. They aren't authentic, and they won't help you in the real world! If you want to improve your listening skills, you have to listen to real conversations.
✅ Each day in this challenge you have a real, 60-90 second conversation clip with a business expert!
3. In-the-moment comprehension
Take a real conversation, and answer true/false or multiple-choice comprehension questions in real-time, as you listen. In real life, you won't have time to pause a conversation, and think about what everything means. You've got to try to gain general understanding in the moment.
✅ Each day in this challenge you have 5 real-time comprehension exercises!
4. Targeted Vocab Study
It seems broad, but if you don't know a word when it's written down, how on earth (how, emphasised) are you going to understand it when you hear it in a fast-paced conversation? If you want to improve your listening skills, you have to check where you are lacking in vocabulary, and try to fill in the gaps!
✅ Each day in this challenge I teach you 12-19 relevant vocabulary words!
✅ 15 daily vocabulary exercises - I test you on vocab from previous days!
5. Studying spoken English and pronunciation
Conversational English is hugely different to written English. To understand it you need to focus on the language used. You need to know about topics like:
✅ Each day in this challenge there is a 'Language & Pronunciation Focus' lesson!
6. FEEDBACK AND CONTACT WITH A TEACHER
What if you have a question or a doubt? What if you want to write some sentences using the new words you've learnt?
