Learning a language begins with understanding. When you hit the upper levels, it is vital that you understand deeply. Reading and listening allows you the opportunity to dig deep into grammar and vocabulary, all completely in the context of authentic communication and use. Read and listen multiple times. Eventually, the language you soak up will become your own.
We live in an unprecedented time. Never before in the history of the world have we had so much access to authentic language and culture. These recordings allow you to listen multiple times to get that deep understanding you need to speak like a native yourself. Unlike in real conversations, you can repeat what you didn’t understand as many times as you need. You will find yourself owning what you heard and read.
