5 KEYS to Understanding Real Life English Conversations

Hello from Paris! I’m trying to understand REAL LIFE French has motivated me to write this post on keys to help you understand REAL LIFE English!

Start with Easy Material

Begin with simpler dialogues and gradually progress to more complex ones as you build your confidence and vocabulary.

Listen for Keywords

Pay attention to keywords and phrases that carry the main ideas of the conversation. Understanding these will help you grasp the overall message.

Take Notes

Jot down unfamiliar words or phrases during the dialogue. Later, research and study their meanings and usage.

Repeat and Shadow

Repeat after the speakers to practice pronunciation and intonation. Shadowing involves speaking simultaneously with the dialogue to mimic the rhythm and flow of the language.

Use Transcripts

Look for dialogues with accompanying transcripts. Reading while listening can aid comprehension and reinforce learning.

I hope you can put some of these TIPS to understand real life english in practice in the next weeks!

Thanks for learning with me!
