Listening is a language skill that is difficult to master. Being exposed to authentic audios helps a great deal to master listening comprehension.

Superb video-lesson Emma.

Hi, dear Emma.
I appreciate your efforts and I’ve learned so much from you and other great tutors on this site.
I’ve watched about 450 videos of this site from a few month ago till now, but I expected more improvement from myself to understand movies.
All I’m saying is I wish you and other great teachers worked more in real life English, Not grammar or IELTS.
Personally, I don’t believe in grammar unless you are great in speaking and listening.
As a matter of fact, native English speaking kids can speak and understand more than all of us!
Even an uneducated English person can do that.
If you want to speak English fluently you should not begin with any grammar lesson cuz it makes you think when you wanna say a sentence and it’s against speaking fluency !
The words should come out easily without any thinking like your native language.
I hope I was clear enough.
Last but not least I really hope you teach us more speaking and listening material instead of grammar.
Thanks for your efforts.
I really appreciate what all of you doing here.
I like you all and wish you the best.
Thanks.

Monday, February 1st 2016

    Yes,I agree with you.you are totally right.
