Does this situation seem familiar to you? Your English is progressing well, the grammar is now familiar, the reading comprehension is no problem, you are communicating quite fluently, but: Listening is STILL a problem!
First of all, remember that you are not alone. Listening comprehension is probably the most difficult task for almost all learners of English as a foreign language. So, now you know you are not alone....! OK. The most important thing is to listen, and that means as often as possible. The next step is to find listening resources. This is where the Internet really comes in handy as a tool for English students.
Once you have begun to listen on a regular basis, you might still be frustrated by limited understanding. What should you do?
Here is some of the advice I give my students:
• Accept the fact that you are not going to understand everything.
• Keep cool when you do not understand - even if you continue to not understand for a long time.
• Do not translate into your native language .
• Listen for the gist of the conversation. Don't concentrate on detail until you have understood the main ideas.
