Hi, Adam. Thanks for the helpful video. You promised to make video about sport vocabulary. It will be great! You know, a lot of teachers try to explain grammar? different between DO and MAKE, Perfect tense or something like this. There are a lot of videos related to the same topics in Internet. But there aren’t enough videos for listening skills. Recommendation to watch TV are good. But many student, like me, who passed English grammar with red Murthy and have 3000 words in their vocabulary can’t watch TV and movies. Because they have high speed, use more vocabulary and many specific words and expressions. I can valuably watch only Peppa Pig and also I use Mad English channel for listening skills. YouTube is good things for students because we can reduce speed turn on subtitles. We’d like to have 5-12 minutes videos for listening. For that I guess teacher may use any events and tell as their opinion or reaction and along the way explain the words . Thanks again!

This’s an amazing lesson I learned a lot of things. My way to understand more spoken English is to take a script of my favourite TV show and print it out and then I highlight all the new words and phrases. I then use Anki app to make my flashcards and I learn them for like 2 weeks and when I feel ready I watch the episode to test my comprehension. I know this is a long process but during making the flashcards I actually absorb the words and when I’m learning on Anki it generally feels like reviewing really. And I actually get to know a lot of advanced words and phrases using this method. Thanks again Adam.
