We answer our Hassan’s question about a problem he is having with listening.

Dear Amy and Curtis,

I’ve been learning English for 3 years but I’ve noticed I have a lot of problems with my listening. I feel like I listen to a lot of audio, maybe 1 hour a day. When I watch movies with subtitles, I know most of the words… but I am not able to hear the words when I listen without subtitles. Please help me.

The English Phrasal Verbs Course

Learning phrasal verbs from a list is not the best way to do it. You need to learn the meaning of phrasal verbs through the context of a situation. In our phrasal verb course, you will get two examples using the phrasal verb in each lesson. Once you have studied 10 lessons, you can test your knowledge using the phrasal verb stories.

The phrasal verb stories are the key to helping you understand the verbs that have multiple meanings and to comprehend what the phrasal verbs mean when you hear them. To learn more about the course and see an example of the lessons you will receive Click Here.
