    Hello.


    The best way to improve your listening skills is listen as much as possible. You can watch videos on Youtube, listen to BBC Radio (I prefer BBC Radio 4 Extra) and etc.
    Moreover I love music, so when I'm listening to something, I'm trying to write down lyrics. Unfortunately, I don't do it well .

    Boris.
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    Not a teacher nor a native speaker.

    Re: Listening ability

    I recommend Ted.com where you can watch short presentations in English, covering a range of very interesting topics. I believe that it is possible to have subtitles on the site, so I recommend that my students watch each video a couple of times without the subtitles to see how much they understand, and then switch on the subtitles if necessary. Also, find an English-speaking online radio station and play it in the background all the time you are at home. Don't actively listen to it - just make sure it's audible. Over time, it will help you understand the rhythm and cadence of the language and you will start to understand more and more words.

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
