Practise listening skills

Listening is so much more than just hearing – it’s the ability to receive and interpret information. Without the ability to listen, information would constantly be misunderstood. This is one of the most essential skills you could build with your students during their year with you. 

Here are some comprehensions and tests that will develop your learners’ listening skills:
