    Reading / Hearing Audiobooks

    What do you think about reading a book and hearing along the audiobook version?

    Good idea? Bad idea? Have you tried it?

    Re: Reading / Hearing Audiobooks

    As long as the audio version is unabridged, I have heard that it has helped many to understand better.
    Yet, one complaint I have heard on several occasions is that because we read much faster than we hear, learners get frustrated.
    I would try it out once, at least.
