“If you practice English listening every day, you will hear good English.” That’s right. The problem is that you have heard this advice many times but why are you still not good at it? That’s because you have not actually applied this advice in practice.
You often feel bored and sleepy when you hear, you feel not have enough time, you find it difficult, you have tried, but also gave up several times halfway. But put aside all that thought aside. You can easily build your English listening habits each day following the instructions below.
What really makes you give up when you listen?
The main reason why you find it hard to maintain your English listening habits is that you are overwhelmed. Imagine all this:
You are currently very little English. Almost a week, you are good at listening English 2-3 times. Once for 15 – 20 minutes. On a good day, you find a method of English listening extremely, or extremely simple. You believe that this method will change your ability to hear English. All you need to do is listen to English every day for 2 hours. You are very excited and start applying that day.
Day 1, 2 hours practice. On the second day, 2 hours of practice. Day 3, 4, 5 … 2 hours practice. And how do you feel after a week? You have not seen the results, but you feel frustrated and tired.
There will be few who have the bravery and determination to maintain such a sounding plan until the results are achieved. They often give up very early, just after a few weeks, even in the first week. And you know what the reason is? Yes, they are bored and sleepy when heard. They do not have enough time. They find it hard. All the reasons we have raised at the beginning.
Secret to have a habit of English listening every day
If you want to have a habit of listening to English every day. Build that habit one by one. For example, you want to have a habit of listening every 30 minutes. On the first day, set a goal of listening for 10 minutes, you maintain until you are comfortable listening for 10 minutes a day. Then, you raise the listening time to 15 minutes / day, then 20 minutes / day … and finally 30 minutes / day. You will find it easy to change things slowly.
Who hears so much, will be good
If you want to listen to English well, practice English listening every day. Do not know what to hear, do not know what to hear, no time to listen … not convincing reasons for you not practice listening.
