    Dear Jennifer,
    I heard the ELS News several times today, and I was proud that I could catch many words, however I couldn’t respond immediately. When I was still considering, the next sentence was gone ! So I have to concentrate all my effort on the speak. At present, it’s ok ,but I’m afraid that I will be nervous when I’m taking tests. As you know ,many people will get pressure before tests.

    Yours sinerely,

      Hi Harris,
      I’m glad to hear that you were able to catch the gist of the ESL News. That’s definitely a positive sign. After listening to one story, click pause and try to paraphrase what you just hear (to yourself or a friend). It’s a great way to combine listening with speaking. The more you do this, the less you will feel nervous. People usually feel nervous because they are not confident. I look forward to hearing more about your successes.
