叫我小山 Posted April 20, 2018 at 10:21 PM Report Share Posted April 20, 2018 at 10:21 PM I've learned the HSK vocabulary levels except level 6, including approx. 500 random words from life and I feel it's a good amount of vocabulary to start venturing out to native-level sources to learn. With this, I've recently been watching a lot of TV shows, (欢乐颂 anyone? lol) and movies including lots of children's programs. My problem is I find that I understand almost all of the words when I read the subtitles, but without pausing and reading, I understand maybe 20% just from listening. The words that they are saying are ones I've learned and know, but when it is spoken it's just a barrage of sounds that I don't "get". I know that this is an unbalance between listening and reading ability, but is there some way to perk up listening skills? I know people will say, "listen more", but is there any way to effectively do that? I feel embarrassed when people ask how long have I been learning 普通话 (2 years) and they begin speaking some regular, everyday speech and I don't understand. I have been learning the Most Common 3000 Characters (currently at #1050) and the HSK level words but I just feel like it's not progressing... 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
