Improve your listening skills!!!!

Hi guys!!
You always ask me about ways of improving your listening skills on your own and I always tell you to see films in English, to listen to the BBC online, to travel abroad,etc...Apart from all that, you have the Internet with loads of websites and blogs (like this one ;)),that help you improve all the skills.A fantastic website I came across last week is ESL VIDEOS.In this website you´ll find a wide variety of videos with questions and transcripts so, if you don´t understand well, you can listen to it and read the transcript at the same time so you get used to the sounds of the words.There are 4 levels: beginner,low intermediate,intermediate and high intermediate.You can start to improve now!!2º Básico students click here:
