Several ways to improve your listening

One of the themes of this semester is listening. This is something you can practice outside class.

1) Go to see films in Version anglaise. Or watch your DVDs in English. Often the DVDs will allow you to have the fil in English with subtitles also in English.

2) The BBC world service site is an excellent place to learn listening, and they help you with the vocabulary etc. This week the featured story is about the delay in the new Sony Play station - so you can hear computing vocabulary too. Try it out
