  • Want to completely understand everything in your target language?

  • In this guide, you'll learn the top ten ways to improve your listening skills with our lessons.

  • Let's begin!

  • Number one, take your very first lesson.

  • The best way to practice listening is to just start listening.

  • Expose yourself to native speakers as much as possible... so access any audio or video lesson on the site and press the play button to get started.

  • You can do the lessons on the site or on the app while you're on the go.

  • Don't have an account?

  • Don't worry.

  • Just go to the sign-up page to create an account.

  • It takes less than 30 seconds and it's free.

  • Then click on the play button on any lesson and start learning.

  • Number two, slow the lesson down.

  • Now if a conversation is too fast for you, simply adjust the playback speed in the lesson control bar and listen to it again at a slower speed.

  • This will help you understand every word.

  • Another way to pick apart every word that you hear is (to) read along as you listen.

  • Just read along as you listen and you'll never miss a word.

  • You can read along with the lesson notes or a lesson transcript that come(s) with every lesson.

  • The lesson notes give you the dialogue, the translations, and in-depth grammar tutorials.

  • The lesson transcript is the full word-for-word transcript of everything you hear.

  • You can also read along with the dialogue study tool, which gives you the line by line breakdown of the conversation including the audio and translations.

  • Number four: listen to the line by line breakdown with the very same dialogue study tool.

  • What makes this tool so powerful is you can listen to each line individually and replay it as much as you want until you understand every single word.

  • This is useful for mastering fast conversations that you would miss otherwise.

  • Number five, listen to the dialogue track.

  • The dialogue track gives you the conversation of that lesson in the target language only, no translations.

  • And you have this tool in every audio lesson.

  • Listen to it and see how much you can understand.

  • Number six: download the dialog tracks and make a playlist.

  • This is a great immersion tactic.

  • Download the tracks to your computer or mobile device.

  • Then, play them on a loop to immerse yourself in the language and improve your listening skills.

  • Each track is only about ten to 30 seconds so it won't take you long.

  • Number seven, play the vocabulary slideshow.

  • You get the slideshow study tool with all of our audio lessons and vocabulary lists.

  • Click on, start slideshow, sit back and listen.

  • You can also play it on loop and immerse yourself in the language.

  • Number eight: get listening assignments from your Premium Plus teacher.

  • You can also get assignments covering reading, writing, speaking and even listening from your teacher.

  • These assignments can be tailored to your goals and needs.

  • You can get a new one every week or any time you're ready for a new one.

  • Number nine, take the listening comprehension lessons.

  • These lessons are designed to test your listening skills.

  • You'll hear a dialogue in the target language and based on the dialogue, you'll be asked to answer a question to check if you understood.

  • There are no translations here except for the subtitles.

  • Read along with the subtitles to understand everything.

  • Number ten: get even more lessons in the lesson library.

  • If you want even more lessons from absolute beginner level to advanced, then visit our lesson library.

  • You get instant access to all of the pathways and lessons that will help you master all areas of the language, including listening.
