    I asked him why they had given me the same level. They said me that my speaking and listening was very weak and that I was not ready for intermediate. Sir, my writing and reading is better than my listening and speaking, but for english the more important skills are listening and speaking, not writing and reading.
    Please help us for it and I Can't understand english people that who is speaking and cant't listening english news and word .please tell me english listening web site or as you can help
    Instead: Please help me; I can't understand what people on the news are saying when they speak in english. Please find me an english listening website or give me some suggestions for listening to english.
    you have been to take the idea that phragragh that what is weekness myself and how we can better
    may God pray with you
    I hope you you will better supose for me
    I'm waiting for your reply (We know this, please don't include it since it's a tiny bit rude.)
    I hope you don't mind my corrections.
    The best thing you can do to learn how to understand english people when they speak is to practice. Listen to more basic messages and conversations at first, and then when you feel comfortable with those, continue listening to more difficult ones.
    Here are some websites I found when i googled "english listening":
    Randall's ESL Cyber Listening Lab
    Listen to English around the World.
    BBC Learning English | Home page
    English Listening Resources - Englishpage.com
    TESL/TEFL/TESOL/ESL/EFL/ESOL Links - ESL : Listening
    Hope this helps!

    Hi, Farooq,
    You have really made too many mistakes in your post, but don't be discouraged, practice and learn, learn and practice. You shouldn't neglect reading and writing, everything is important and interconnected.
    I'd recommend a lot of reading aloud.
    If you could afford private lessons, it would be the best.

    Cheers

    HI...
    Instead of searching for websites to improve your pronunciation, you can alternatively listen to TV News channels like BBC,CNN for British and US accents respectively.

    All the best...

    Hi all, I think that a grammar book is a good choice instead of keeping focused on "listening" only. Your listening will get better gradually as you are living in UK. I'm not a teacher but I do believe studying grammar is the best way to have solid skills in English and it will help you so much.
