Students of English as a Second Language are always eager to improve their listening skills. Many of them are even obsessed with the idea of doing listening comprehension activities as the only means to improve.

Fortunately, there are many other more interesting ways to listen to English easily. Today I would like to suggest you two sites that can help you with task.

If you want to listen to the radio, you could try the BBC, especially the Learning English section, where you can find podcasts, interviews, activities and many other things.

But if you prefer watching tv, you could try visiting the site, where you can watch series online and for free. You have numerous options, depending on your preferences. I would recommend you watching Friends, of course, or How I Met Your Mother.
