Want to work on your listening skills in English?  Here is an effective idea from our GV teachers.  Find some interesting podcasts, YouTube videos and TED Talks and write notes while you listen. 

While you listen, focus on questions like: Who, What, Where, When, Why, How?  You won’t understand everything at first but keep practicing and it will get easier.
