    Oh my God. I can't hear English.

    Hello everybody....
    I am not from an English country.
    I can understand what you write, but I can't hear everything if you speak...
    So Teacher, would you like to show me how to hear English?
    Please correct my posts if they have any problems.
    Thanks

    Re: Oh my god. I can't hear English

    I think you should try to listen to as many sources as you can. Don't expect miracles, but you will make progress over time. Picking out words comes first, then phrases and eventually bigger chunks. It's a process like building up your understanding of written language- these are different skills. People speak fast and change the sounds of words in connected speech. I am currently at beginner level in the country I am living in and picking out words and bits is the best I can do.

    If you are going to take the Lord's name in vain, at least capitalize it.
