In my case it is difficult to meet new people because I spend a lot of time in my work and there I don´t have the opportunity to join with others only with my mates. Even though I'll like to join with different groups.

Permalien
Dear friends, I'm new plz help me in listening lessons, should I listen then answer the questions, at the end I should open the transcript ??

Hello hamayoon,

I think that's a good way to use the material. First do the tasks on the page, then check your answers. After that, listen again with the transcript, using it to see why any of your answers were incorrect. You can also use the transcript to read aloud along with the speaker, which can help you to develop more fluent speech.
