#6: How to listen -4

    When you practice listening, you should concentrate on the sounds. You can hear the sounds ―what we call "KIKINAGASHI"―so that you can learn its accent or intonation or rhythm, but definitely you also should listen to the sounds.
   
    But there is one thing which you must too much be careful of.

    Don't think the "meanings". Don't try to think the "meanings" as possible as you can. I wrote the reason in the #4, but if you try to think the "meanings", precisely it is not to think the meanings that you try but to translate the sounds into your native language.

    So, when you practice listening, not practice hearing, you might not as well try to think the "meanings". The meanings, in fact, come to us from over there whether you like it or not.
