    English from different countries

    Hi Teachers,

    I'd like to improve my listening skills, recently I've got many english movie clips which produced by different english speaking countries, such as British, North America, Scotland, Australia, American Black, Singapore....I am starting to watch all of them, do you think it is the best way to practice english listening?

    Listening to various different English-speaking accents will certainly help with your comprehension. However, it will probably confuse you with pronunciation as there will be a lot of variety.

    In general, however, watching TV and films with native English speakers is certainly a good way to get used to hearing the language spoken.
