What do you do while you listen to English? If your answer is "Nothing" then you're not improving.

Listening can be one of the most difficult skills to master. With this handy dandy listening plan you can improve your comprehension skills easily and actually see IMPROVEMENT!

Picking a listening sample:
1. The selection should be brief: 2-3 minutes.
2. The selection should be challenging, but not impossible to understand.
3. The selection should be on a topic that interests you.

Your Listening Plan:
Utilizing top-down and bottom-up listening strategies for optimal success.

  1. Read the title of the listening sample. Guess what the listening is about. Make a list of all the words you know associated with the topic.
  2. Listen to the sample.
  3. Write down the- who? what? where? when? why? how? of the listening sample.
  4. Listen to the sample again.
  5. Confirm that your answers to number 3 are correct.
  6. Listen to the sample again.
  7. Write down any vocabulary words that are unknown to you. Look up their definitions in a dictionary (I suggest collinsdictionary.com).
  8. Listen to the sample again.
  9. Write a brief summary (2-3 sentences) about the listening.
  10. Attempt to use the new vocabulary words in your conversations the next day!

That's all you have to do! I would suggest completing three listening plans a night!

Contact me for suggestions on where to go for listening samples that fit your levels! To discuss how these metacognitive and self-regulatory listening skills work and to go over examples of these listening skills book a session with me! Looking forward to hearing from you!

Want a teacher who knows what they're doing? You've found her! I'm a PhD student studying Linguistics: Second Language Acquisition. I have mastered and use only the best and most current ways to learn languages based on today's research in my sessions! Plus, I always make sure we have a lot of fun and laughs too! I'm a current English instructor at the University of Florida and a recent adult ESOL instructor at Santa Fe College in Gainesville, Florida. Previously, I also taught at the English Language Institute of UF, instructing students of all ages. I've taught French at the Ohio University to undergraduates and at the University of Florida, as well. I've been teaching since 2009 and I am SLAT (Second Language Acquisition and Teaching) Certified by the University of Florida. As an instructor, I play the role of a coach. I enable students to focus on their goals and hold them accountable to accomplishing them. I promote student agency and allow students to make choices about their own learning; this way each lesson fits their individual needs and differences. Before being a teacher, I was a success coach for college students. Not only will you learn your target language from me, but also the metacognitive and self-regulatory skills necessary to get ahead in life, your career, and academia! Who else offers that? Overall, I am passionate, dedicated, outgoing, sometimes silly, and, above all, motivating. Let's make an action plan together! It's time to reach your goals!
