    Hi all,

    What are your top tips for improving listening skills? I have a new student who is very weak in listening and she has signed up to take the Cambridge B1 at the end of July. I feel her listening exam will let her down badly. In her previous attempt she was 3 points away from passing overall, but 14 points away from the pass level in listening. The result is an average of the 4 skills.

    I have plenty of practice papers, which I´m going to do with her to help with exam technique. I also use BBC resources. Any other ideas appreciated.
