A nice way to train your listening skills is listening to radio, no matter where you are. But a usefull way is to listen to online radio or podcasts that also have a transcript. This way you can hear and read in the same time and choose to hear only what best suits your interest.
How do I learn with online radio?1. Choose an interesting subject and listen to it
2. Than read the transcript and try to understand the main ideea
3. Mark the unknown words and look them up in a dictionary
(I recommend www.dict.cc)
4. Listen once again while reading the text
5. Listen untill you understand the spoken language without having to read the text
Well, you have indeed a little work to do, but you will see the progress soon. And of course this will pay out only if you do it on a regular basis, let´s say 20 Minutes every day.
