#9: How to listen -7

    In my opinion, we should start our second language learning from listening, then speaking practice with listening practice, and reading.
    We can write our second language inevitably after you read something and put the sounds you learn on the letters you read. Maybe we don't need so much writing practice as we expected.
    I referred to this in the previous post but there is one thing which you should be take care of.
    If you are not used to the sounds and manage to think the meanings you listen to, you should start listening practice using some audio without animation because if you are not used to the sounds, you will try to receive its meanings from the picture and guess the letter which seems to accord with the meanings. The process to receive the meanings from the picture and guess its letters is something like a translating process; and that pretty odd process of translation.
    The thing we must receive is not the letters but the sounds.
    You need not take so much time for this listening practice without any animation but you might as well listen until you don't try to think its meanings and be able to concentrate on the sounds itself. For my part, I practiced this kind of listening for about 8 months.
