Hi guys, it's Keith from English Speaking Success. Today, I am going to show you how to understand native English speakers and how to really improve your listening skills. What's more, I will show you the biggest mistake students make when trying to understand native speakers, and also when doing the IELTS listening test.

sorry but I do not deal with English language anymore. No job will be carried out.
I also have some predictions for English nation. I presume they will face with big problems. I unerstand this does not seem like a thing which is believeable. Of course this consists of a prediction.
Anyway, but I will let you know what I do with the linguistic aside. I use english as a gateway to learn some other things/languages. (by English:I point out to written language with the biggest ratio of use, not exactly verbal use or communication)

anyway, I hope I shall learn Arabic very well for instance (I aim to be at least C1 or C2)
this is a journey.
