I meet a girl in the bus and since this day she is my best friend

Once i encountered with my old lady friend ,i had crashed in her front ..then we became refreshed in our friendship

It´s quite weird. I was travelling by bus and one guy approached and introduced himself as someone whom would like to be a friend of mine. In fact, I have never seen him before but I was determined not refusing him. For that reason, we started chatting and we are good friends nowadays.

during a trip, the girl sitted beside me, suddenly turned right and hit my arm with hers, we introduced each other and became friends!

The girl sat beside me not sitted..anyway if you r interested to make your communication skill better then you can call me via whatsapp, Imo, and fb -------------------------

met a guy on the bus and now wer friends

Hi.. I've meet some friends in usual way which is my friend until now. Meet her at the airport.

Hi , I am Yu Ko from Yangon, Myanmar. I understand when I listened the test. But when I have to speak english in my work, my mind went blank and I don't know what to say. I also have to answer some call that is from foreigner. They really speak fast.So, I didn't catch what they saying. So, I want to improve listening skill.Can you give me advice? How can I do to overcome my weakness.

Hello Yu Ko,

It is difficult to cope with fast speech, especially through the telephone. The first thing I would suggest is that you develop one or two very polite ways to ask the other speaker to repeat what they said if you did not understand it. For example, you might say:

Could you say that once again, please, a little more slowly. The connection is not the best and I didn't quite understand.

Do you mind saying that again please? I didn't quite follow.

 

Another technique is to check that you understood what the person said or wants. For example, you could say:

So if I understand correctly you need to... / your problem is... / what you are saying is that...

 

As far as developing listening skills goes, the key is practice. Using the transcripts which we provide with our listening texts is a good idea so that you can read and listen at the same time. This will help you to get used to the rhythms of natural speech and to see how words change and are linked when they are spoken in fluent connected speech. Try also reading the transcript along with the recording after you have listened and done the various comprehension tasks. This will help both your speaking and your listening.

 

Best wishes,
