Ideas on super-charging listening ability?

Posted by mayor_bombolini February 28, 2008 in the Group General Discussion.


I'm looking to improve my listening ability quickly.

My reading ability (intermediate - low) and speaking ability (elementary - high) are better than my listening ability (elementary - low).....which is frustrating for both parties during a conversation.

I've been working with the material on the site a couple of weeks now (there has been some improvement...but I'd like quicker results).  

Any recommendations (outside of having my hearing checked)?

I'm already spending a couple of hours a day listening to the lessons and I have been practicing with Chinese speakers (2 -3 hrs /week). 

Thanks for any ideas you can offer.  I'll be here for the duration so maybe I can return the favor sometime.

Best regards, Bill M.
