Times to practice my Eng listening…..是時候練習英語聽力,介紹你一個網站


Started my new job for two weeks already, I found so many new things to learn. And one of them is my Eng listening…..

Thanks to the education of HK, I stared learning Eng since I was 3. And I started learning in complete English environment since I was 12. My English, although not good, is good enough for reading, writing and speaking. But I found my listening really suck….One of the main point is, I learnt English in a Chinglish (Chinese style English) environment.



So I searched for some webs that are good for practising listening. I planned to watch a video of maybe 2-3 minutes everyday. It doesn’t take long time so I can keep the habit and really learn something. Finally I found this web. I believe it’s good for every Chinese: VoiceTube《看影片學英語》60,000 部英文學習影片,每天更新

VoiceTube is a English learning web found in Taiwan. In the website, you can found tons of English videos in different levels, topics and interest. For example I can search beginner Video about Travelling. They are also sorted by different accent: American, British, Australian and other accents.

有見及此,我真的在網上找一些能訓練英語聽力的網站了,我的打算是能夠每天看一段約兩三分鐘的影片,一來所花時間不多,我比較能堅持,二來我也真的能學習一下。最後,我找到這個網站,我相信對每一個中國人都很有用: VoiceTube《看影片學英語》60,000 部英文學習影片,每天更新

Entering the video page, we can find the whole script at the right. And we can choose to show the Eng and Chi subtitles or not. We can also choose to repeat one sentence again again and again.

Under the video, there are intense studies of some vocabulary. After studying the video, we can try to speak out the script and record it. Also there is a fill in the blank test.

How do I practise? First of all, I watch the video without any subtitle to see how much I understand. Usually for beginner English I understand around 70-80%. Then I watch again with Chinese subtitle to fully understand the script. After that i will watch with English subtitle. Finally I will watch it without subtitle again and again until I can listen every word.

After practising for a few days, I come to a conclusion: my weakness is not my listening but lack of vocabularies and phrases/idioms! I don’t understand the word, so how can I listen it out? Take “hit a fever pitch” as example, I fully understand it when I “read” it but I get nothing when I “listen”. So, maybe I need to read more English instead of listening practises…..

Anyway, my Chinese firends, it’s a good website. Try it!

練習了幾天,我得出了一個結論:我其實不是聽力不行,而是詞彙不足…..當我都不知那個字,又如何聽懂…..尤其是一些慣用語,如hit a fever pitch,如果是閱讀的話,我是懂的,但因不常用,到我聽的時候,就聽不懂了….所以,可能我倒是應多看英文雜誌、文章,而不是練聽力…..
