What do you do to help with listening?

My advice is to listen a lot of English conversations as much as you can, from movies, music, podcasts, YouTube videos, radios, native speaker friends, seminars, networking parties and so on, to improve one person's familiarity with English Speakings. Then learn more about the vocabulary and pronunciations to improve even further.

I listen many things in english ( podcast, film, series) and obviously I listen english people and I try to understand as much as I can. It's difficult to understand especially if the accent is strange, like if it's from irish people.

in music for ex i replay it till i get it in the university i used to record audio files for courses

I can read a little English, but I can't hear well. I feel two different languages

I try to practice every day.
I watch on you tube almost everyday at short videos in order to improve my listening skills. For sure if I will be consequent the results must shown.
Thank you!

to improve my listening I try to listening some podcasts, I see the movie and video on youtube

Yeah, it's so difficult to listen to the people with native language, because they speak very fast. But i would suggest you to watch friends series. That's much fun and instructive for listening skill.

I practice much time.

I try to focus and concentrate as much as possible on what is being said. That way I don't miss key information. I listen to the radio every day on my way to or from work or driving around at the week end. I have a favourite radio station.

It seems that your website has changed contents of the section: "Frequently asked questions". Last time I remember I've read it with tips kind of "how to improve speaking/writing... skills", but they are not there now. I like the tips much because they help me practice right ways. I hope to see them again and plus listening and reading skill tips.
Thank you.
