Living in Lagos! I’m trying to get more listening practice and I’ve been focusing most intently on the flash cards. People compliment me on my pronounciation, especially as a new speaker. I’m trying to get more listening practice because when people respond to me I have no clue what they’re saying. The shorties have a lot of back and forth conversation so I’m wondering the best way to use them. Surely it’s not about memorizing every phrase…So I’ve been listening for a bit and then reading the translation and then re-listening to see if I can get the meaning to come through. Not sure whether this will ultimately help me, but when I do this I’m getting the gist of it.
Is there a better way?
Oh, and by the way, I’m HandsomeSteve and my daily points are higher than most of you, so keep practicing!!
