Listening

Barriers to Effective Communication 
Listening for Specifics ( basic) 


Improving Listening Skills  
   If you want to improve your listening, you must listen to English as much and as often as you can.   You need to surround yourself with the MUSIC of the English language.

You need to do this without subtitles or captions or reading, just to get the feel of the English language.  If you start right away with scripts and subtitles, you won't  your listening skills, only  your reading skills.

It takes effort to improve something that is difficult. If you don't make the effort, you will not improve. 

Use subtitles, and scripts AFTER you start getting used to the "sound and rhythm" of English and begin to understand some of what you are listening to.  
At this point, English captions and scripts can help you build your vocabulary and other


How to Practice Listening with Recorded Materials

General Tips: 
  • Remember, you are NOT A COMPUTER. You DO NOT NEED TO UNDERSTAND or REMEMBER every single word you hear in order to have a general understanding of what you are listening. Even native speakers do not hear or remember every word. They are focusing on the main content, not every tiny detail. 
  • It is  better to understand 20% of the key words and content words than to try and catch many unimportant words. You will increase the percentage of content words that you understand if you accept that you will not, cannot, and do not need to  understand everything and continue to practice focusing on what you DO understand, rather than on getting upset, and trying to remember what you DIDN'T understand or hear.
  • Don't translate words and sentences into your own language as you listen.  When you translate, you are always five or six sentences behind what is being said in the conversation. As a result, you completely lose the "gist" or the context of the conversation itself.
 Procedure:

  • First, listen to the story, or episode several times without subtitles, reading the script or even quiz,or comprehension questions. This will help you to let your ear get accustomed to the rhythm of English, and also help you to get a general idea of the story on your own. 
  • Sometimes, it is a good idea to close your eyes when you listen for the first time. This can help you focus on the sounds and words you are listening to instead of becoming distracted by other things around you.  Do this with both video, and audio. It is particularly helpful with news stories. 
  • In your first listening, listen for the big picture: main ideas, content words that will give you important details you need to understand the story. 
  • You do not need to understand every word to understand the story, so do not even try to listen to every word. 
  • Listen to the word and sentence stress of the speaker or speakers. That will help you understand content words.
  • Listen to the intonation of the speakers. Do they sound, excited, surprised, angry, certain, uncertain, upset?
  • As you listen focus on the context. Try to answer some of the following questions in your mind: 
    • Where is the conversation taking place ( in a shop, at work, at school, on the street, in an airport, at home, etc? 
    • What is the relationship between the speakers? ( Are they friends, colleagues, family members, customer and clerk etc.
    • When is this conversation taking place ( during an event, before something., after something, in the morning, at lunch, on a date   
    • What is this conversation about generally?
  • When  you have a general idea of what the story, or video is about, try to answer comprehension  questions, or to read the script along with the story.
 VERY IMPORTANT NOTE:
  • DO NOT STOP and START the recording or video every few sentences in order  to try and completely understand what the people are saying. Conversations are not dictations. You do not need to take word by word notes, nor do you need to understand every single word someone says. You will NEVER have this opportunity in the real word, or even on a listening test. 
  • Teach yourself good habits immediately. Make sure you that listen to enough of the conversation or lecture to get some kind of context, big picture of what it is all about.
  • If the conversation or lecture is short. Listen to the whole thing all the way through before stopping it and playing it again. After you have listened to the whole thing, then you can listen to it in "chunks", but again, the chunks should be at least a minute long. 
 Stopping and Starting the audio:
  • Later, when you have done the main listening work and activities, you may want to concentrate on vocabulary, specific expressions, or even pronunciation. 
  • At this point, go ahead and stop and start the player as often as you want in order to focus on specific language.Write new words and expressions that you hear. 
  • At this point, you may also want to turn on the captions or read along with the script, if the script is provided. At this point, you will have made a real effort,. and the script or captions will help you to check your understanding, as well as to help you improve your ability to understand

    If you plan to work, go to school or justg live in an English- speaking country, remember - REAL listening involves much more than choosing a, b, c, or d in a multiple choice test, or filling in the blanks on a form.  You have to UNDERSTAND and more importantly RESPOND APPROPRIATELY to what you are listening to.  This is called communication.

          This was the first listening lab on the internet that was specifically developed for ESL students. It is still one of my favourite listening practice sites for students because although  the English is a little slowed down, the conversations represent "real" conversations you would have in every day life. They are NOT just test preparation dialogues - which frequently only deal with "academic conversations" rather than normal conversations between all kinds of people.

          The site includes hundreds of everyday conversations graded easy, medium and difficult. It also includes at Academic listening practice, vocabulary based listening, daily tips listening and  even "real" conversation

          The content is strictly audio. That means you listen without pictures. You can improve  
          Improve your listening skills through practice and self grading quizzes that focus on on "normal" conversation topics in many situations. 

          The quizzes include pre-listening questions, listening questions, vocabulary explanation and post listening questions as well as transcripts

              TAKE THE TIME

              Learning a language takes a large amount of time. According to the Council of Europe, it takes a European adult learning another European language about 550 hours of study to reach the Threshold Level – that is the level at which, without being totally fluent, you can manage to understand and make yourself understood in everyday situations. If you do not already speak a European language, learning English will take much longer. In seven years at secondary school, pupils usually have about 900 hours of instruction in their first foreign language – excluding homework ! These figures are not given to discourage you, but to help you set yourself a reasonable objective. If you intend to study in an English-speaking country you will need to be much better than the Threshold Level. On the other hand, if you only need to read and write routine e-mails related to your job, you may attain your objective in much less than 550 hours. Generally, it is not efficient to spread language learning over too long a period. Set yourself a time limit – 3 years maximum !

              ORGANIZING YOUR WORK

              It has been proved to be more efficient to work a little every day rather than a lot once a week. It is important to have daily contact with the language of at least ten minutes. Decide on a specific time each day to work on your English. Write it in your diary/date book or wherever you note your appointments. Draw up a detailed work programme in terms of concrete, limited objectives. Examples :
              • read and understand an article
              • learn to sing a song
              • write 10 questions with « do » and « does »
              This means defining your objectives in terms of « know how » rather than in terms of pages read or chapters studied in a grammar book. Evaluate your progress regularly and adapt your programme as needed. You may find it useful to find a graphic way of representing your progress and also the time spent learning English. Take a few minutes each evening, just before going to sleep, to reflect on the English you’ve learnt during the day. This way you will integrate during your sleep what you have been working on during the day. If you find you are no longer keeping to your programme and working regularly, find someone to help you reactivate your enthusiasm for English.

              LEARNING ENGLISH WITH A PARTNER

              If your objective is to master the oral language, your will need to have practice in speaking. Find someone else who is also learning English in your neighbourhood, your company or your university. Meet at least once a week to speak in English, do exercises together and above all to encourage each other to continue!

              MEETING AN ENGLISH SPEAKER

              This is easy, of course, if you are already in an English-speaking country. Elsewhere, it will take some organisation, but in most big towns it is possible to find English speakers. This does not necessarily mean native English speakers: Indians, Ghanaians, Germans, Scandinavians… often speak excellent English. People working or studying in a foreign country can be lonely and therefore happy to have contact with local people in exchange for speaking English. Tourists also often welcome opportunities to meet and talk to local people. Think of ways in which you could find English speaking workers, students or tourists :
              • put an ad in a newspaper or shop
              • go to an embassy or a consulate
              • try a tourist information centre
              • use a university bulletin board

              VISITING AN ENGLISH-SPEAKING COUNTRY

              A visit to a country where the people speak English can be very profitable, but it has to be well-organised or you may easily find yourself saying little more than, « Black coffee and a cheese sandwich, please » in English. One possibility is an organised trip of some kind :
              • visit the Lake District in England,
              • explore the Great Lakes in Canada
              • go on a wildlife safari in Kenya.
              But choose a trip organised by a travel agent in the country itself so that you will be in a gro

              1. You have a wonderful website for ESL learners. I'm an ESL teacher at City College of San Francisco.
                On the right side of your page, under "Useful Sites for Practicing" , "Pronunciation, the Sounds of English", I'm getting a 404 error. I have a suggestion, though. I have two websites for pronunciation. They are: http://englishvowels.blogspot.com and
                http://englishconsonants.blogspot.com
                These have various listening exercises and blank fill for the vocabulary, grouped under specific sounds.

                1. Dear John,
                  Thank you for the compliment about my website. I would like to return it in kind. YOU have a terrific set of websites. You have obviously been working on them for a long time. They are creative, interesting, informative, and useful. I love the "art" theme. How ever did you find the time to do all that work? I will definitely let my students know about them. Would it be OK if I listed them in my various links categories as well as on specific reading, listening, grammar pages?
                  I already had links to both of your pronunciation websites listed on the PRONUNCIATION PAGES at the top of the website, but I have now also added them to the Pronunciation Links on the side. The PAGES at the top of the website include very specific activities and exercises in addition to general websites.
                  Thanks for the heads up about Sounds of English in the Useful Sites for Practicing links. It was the very first set of links I put up when I started this website in February 2010. I have since added all of the links in that category to more specific categories of links.
                  How did you come across my site? I am not really that visible on the internet since I have no idea how to promote the blog. A lot of the traffic has been hit and miss and through word of mouth.
                  I'm still very new to this, and have not figured out how to get my own audio onto the website. I know how to link to other sites' audio as well as how to embed videos, but I have no idea how to get recordings of my own voice on the site.
                  Again, thank you for commenting on the site and letting me know about the problems as well as about your websites.

              4. Thank you for the information.
                Listening is very important. It is an effortless way for increasing vocabulary. Keep your attention on the new vocabulary words you come across. Learning how to use a word or which context it can be used in is an important aspect in building vocabulary. A word cannot be retained in mind without getting knowledge of the background in which it can be used.
                https://vocabmonk.com helps to understand the word and the aspect in which the word is used.
