Listening plays a huge part in learning any language. The first thing you did as a child was listen - you couldn't talk, or write or speak, so you listened. Unfortunately as we grow up a lot of us lose the skill of listening, but like most things, it is something you can improve on.

Learning a language is a lot like learning to play a musical instrument. You can listen to music for enjoyment, but if you want to study the music you have to listen more critically. It's the same with languages; you need to make a conscious effort to hear not only the words that someone is saying but, more importantly, pay attention, and try to understand the complete message behind the words.

Watching films, TV shows or videos is a good start. If you're not sure what films to watch, look at my recommended films pages.

Films and TV shows are scripted, so listening to talk radio or chat shows can be a bit more challenging. It's all good practice.

Tips for success in achieving proficiency and fluency in English Listening:

Watch English Programs and Movies on Television
Watch English movies, Listen speeches or documentaries on television. Initially, you can read the sub-titles to follow the conversation. As you practice more, you will realize that you are able to follow the conversation without needing to read the sub-titles.
Download and use English Audio & Video from Internet
Pod casts are available on the internet. These are audio and video files and many of these can be downloaded for free. These are a great way to practice listening skills and develop an understanding of different accents.
Watch English News Channels Regularly
Set aside an hour every day to watch English news channels. This is one of the most effective ways of improving your comprehension.
