There will be a Spanish listening activity in Spanish towards the end of the video. Also, you will find more intermediate and advanced listening activities on our channel. More useful tips: http://www.whynotspanish.com/spanish/train-improve-listening-skills-4-steps/ Transcript and quiz: http://www.whynotspanish.com/spanish/listening-activity-draw-dog-transcript/ --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- In this video, we are talking about tips on how to improve your listening skills in Spanish. These tips will help you better understand Spanish speakers in conversations. First, let's start with the why. Most Spanish speakers do not enunciate when they speak. Another reason is that Spanish is the second fastest language in the world after Japanese. So when you combine those together it can make for a lot of difficulty understanding. There are two types of listening passive and active listening. Passive listening is where you have things like Spanish music in the background but are not really paying close attention. This is could help you learn the musicality of the language but will not really help you that much. We recommend trying to do active listening. This is where you listen to something and take action like you would in a conversation. Here are our tips to practice active listening. 1. Have a conversation in Spanish When you are having a conversation always look to say something back and expand. 2. Get scripts or subtitles Get scripts or subtitles of what you are watching or listening. When you are reading while you hear it will help you better understand by being able to see the sentence structure and better understand the context. Also if you are listening to music try to find the lyrics for the song and sing along. 3. Slow it down When you listen to slower versions of the audio you have more of a chance to understand. You can do this on YouTube by going to the settings box (the little gear wheel) and then click on speed. Write the words you understand down then go back and watch it at normal speed to see if you can pick out the words from what you have written down. 4. Predict the content Try to predict the vocabulary that you might see in the video you are about to watch. Look up any words that you think you might need or that will be used. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 🔔Subscribe to our channel --------- https://goo.gl/iV43XT Visit us / Visítanos: www.whynotspanish.com 📸Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/whynotspanish/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/whynotspanish/ --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Equipment We Use to make the videos (amazon affiliate links) 1.

The clips and music I have used I do not own in most cases.

These videos are transformative in a positive sense, I take clips from various sources to help create an atmospheric feeling that will help people in different situations in their life. Be it overcoming hard challenges, giving them more fuel in various sporting scenes or act as hope for those who need to hear encouraging words. I also do not wish to use the heart of any piece of the work that would perhaps decrease the market value of the original content, if anything I hope to promote the content so that people can reach out and subsequently increase the market value. Lastly, these videos are to educate people in an entertaining fashion. Given these are very short videos the short parts I use them to act as a catalyst to further reading.
Why is it that so many people think they can’t draw? Where did we learn to believe that? Graham Shaw will shatter this illusion – quite literally - in a very practical way. He’ll demonstrate how the simple act of drawing has the power to make a positive difference in the world. Graham specialises in the art of communication and has helped thousands of people to make important presentations. He is perhaps best known for his use of fast cartoon drawings to communicate ideas and is the author of ‘The Art of Business Communication’. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
In this English pronunciation lesson, I'm going to show you how to pronounce some difficult words. These words are often pronounced incorrectly and are common mistakes that many English students make. This is because the combination of sounds is difficult, or because there are silent letters and syllables. I've chosen these words because they are common words and they are words that are often pronounced incorrectly by English learners. These words are: - vegetable - comfortable - almond and salmon - et cetera (etc.) - clothes - jewellery - architecture - enthusiastic - word, world & work - photograph Please note that the pronunciation of some of these words differs between English accents. I speak with an Australian English accent 🙂 Let's fix these pronunciation mistakes together so that you can speak English more clearly and confidently! #mmmEnglish #NaturalEnglishPronunciation #RealEnglish #SpeakingEnglish #IPA #EnglishPronunciation #EnglishTeacher #YouTubeTeacher Read the full transcript to this video on my blog: https://www.mmmenglish.com/2017/05/19/10-english-words-youre-probably-pronouncing-wrong-difficult-pronunciation-common-mistakes/ Get Grammarly Grammar Checker FREE! https://grammarly.go2cloud.org/SHp9 English Listening practice - Try Audible for FREE! http://www.audibletrial.com/mmmEnglish Improve your English pronunciation and speaking skills by practicing with the mmmEnglish Imitation Technique!
