View Full Version : Listening practice

29-Jun-2005, 18:52
Dear, Teacher,

How long will I feel any results of the listening practice?

I have easiness to read and write sentences but to listen I get some words at the sentence but not the whole.

I am watching TV channels of series and news. Is that kind of channels properly?

Best Regars, Gustavo.

TV and radio are fine, but it's hard to check your own comprehension, unless you record it. For listening, try www.elllo.org. ;-)

www.esl-lab.com is also a useful site.

Thanks for your reply.

The site is full of quizzes but I am trying to play the Audio and I receive a file with ram extension.

It is unrecognizable by my Windows Explorer. Should I need to install an software to play it?

Thanks, Gustavo.

Hi, gfehse,
I use Mozilla Firefox instead of Explorer. Anyway, they say it is better.
And on my computer RealPlayer opens those files.
I hope it'll help. Tell me the result. ;-)

They'll open in IE as well, but gfehse will have to install Real Player first. ;-)

Hi, Teacher,

Yes! You and Alice are correct. The Windows XP identified it as a Real Audio Meta file. The installation of Real Player solved my problem.

Thanks, Everyone.

I hope it's worthwhile after all this. ;-)
