How did you get on? What programme did you listen to?

Remember there are other listening activities which you can find on the left of the blog. Many of them are adapted to different levels and others have transcripts.


I WISH I COULD FIGURE THEM ALL OUT. (THIS MEANS YOU CAN'T FIGURE THEM OUT)

I HOPE I CAN FIGURE THEM OUT (THIS MEANS THERE IS A POSSIBILITY OF YOU DOING SO)

Graham, I connected with BBC radio by the link that you put in the blog. I was listening to some old radio serials. Also, I’ve used the links of Agenda Web and Mansión del Inglés for listening and doing exercises. I thank you for putting the new gadget for translating words. You’re really keened of us all learn English.

Thanks, Graham. You're very kind to me. I haven't thought leaving the English, I'm quite constant. I know I'm learning, but my big mistake is to understand the spoken English, so I'm going to do more exercises of listening. This blog is very good, you are working it hard, and it is a pity that isn't used more by students. Again, tank you very much for the encouragement you give me. Paloma

I also have a gadget in my computer which automatically translates words and sentences. Next to the Corrector ortográfico, I have a Traducir tab. I suppose all computers have one. It is really useful.

I wish everyone was as keen as you.

Hi Paloma,

You've just left the class. I'm writing this from the little laptop in class. My computer isn't working at the moment.

For some reason, your comment has entered as spam.

The more you do listening exercises, the easuer things will be - you'll see!

Have a sunny weekend!
