    Are you doing structured listening at all with exercises to test your understanding?

    How long have you been in Australia?

    You've probably improved, but you just haven't noticed it. Listening is always good, and you don't have to listen very hard, but it takes time.

    But as well as listening, you should speak. If you haven't already done so, find some Australian friends and spend time with them. A good way to do this is to find a club that you might enjoy -- for example, if you like cycling, there may be a cycling club; or if you like poetry, maybe a poetry club.

    Dear teachers:


    I want to thank everybody for their help. I study English as a second language (in Australia), but I have a problem with listening. Every day I watch TV and listen to music, but I don't feel like my English is getting any better.


    I want your advice.
