Spanish listening is an active process, vs. hearing, which is passive.

Do you need to improve your conversational speaking skills? Or is it hard to understand spoken Spanish? That´s because listening in a second language is an active skill that you need to develop and improve over time. Here´s a quick, free activity that you can do independently, can be adapted to any topic or level.

To help train your ears, try to learn more vocabulary words (which your brain will automatically begin to recognize!). Then, experiment with several ways to answer questions so when you are speaking, you have had plenty of practice. And practice sponteanous, unplanned conversation – like in the activity below.

Watch the video to see how to practice.

Then, try it out with the beginner (A1) level flashcards from the video. Or make your own set to work with on
