Here is another frequent comment that visitors to OnTargetEnglish.com make:
I can understand some of the English in the videos but not all of it. How can I understand more?
Here are three things that you can do to understand more of the English spoken in our videos:
1. Watch the video again. Or watch the part of the video that you did not understand. The great thing about online video is that you can go back and watch it again.
2. Read the text while you listen. Use the closed captions for YouTube videos. Do you see the letters CC at the bottom of this video? If you click those letters, the words that I speak in the video will appear near the bottom. Videos that you purchase from OnTargetEnglish.com do not have closed captions, but you can read the script of the video while you listen to the video. When you listen to the words and see them at the same time, you can understand more, and you might also improve your vocabulary.
3. Avoid distractions. Tell yourself that learning English is really important. There are some practical things you can do to help you concentrate. What is something that you do to help you concentrate while you read or study? Add a comment below this video.
Again, follow these three tips. Watch the video again, read the text while you listen, and avoid distractions. If you follow these tips, you will be able to understand the speaking in our videos better.
