Level 1 Listening Practice


#1

The LPs at Challenges 10, 15, 20 and 25 are at double speed: can anyone tell me please how to play them at normal speed?

That’s how they should be - they are designed to get your ears accustomed to hearing rapid pace and you shouldn’t attempt to understand them, just practise listening - it sounds odd, but it’s been proved to make speech at normal speed (which learners often find ‘too fast’) much easier to cope with in the longer term.

Thank you.

Hello! I have just started listening to the second listening practice - the one attached to level 1 challenge 10 - which is the first one at high speed. I love it - I started to feel the benefit straight away and what’s even better, it makes me laugh to hear Iestyn and Cat rabbiting away :joy:
