Hello Doradora73! IMHO, you should listen to spoken English (television, radio, youtube videos, podcasts) for at least ten minutes a day.
At first it will be hard, you will only grasp a few words and the discussed topic(s). With time and practice, your listening skills will improve. The most important thing is perseverance, basically you need to exercise your brain. Furthermore, you may focus on an English dialect or diversify.

I hope this helps!

Hi Conan, sorry but for first time we should watch movies with subtitle in italian or directly in english?

It is usually recommended the English subtitle. In this way you can see how to write words. Instead if you read the Italian subtitles you can be inattentive.

I would agree with what TiliaCordata said. The speakers are not very good - I finally had to turn off the sound when I was going through the Italian course, and the slow version didn't help that much, either.

My advice is to follow a British TV series, you can easily find one on the Internet. YouTube, for instance, is full of comedy! My favourite is: "Keeping Up Appearances". Listening to this comedy, you can get a british accent. Bye

As an American person, I made an account in Italian. (As you it would be English) I would read the signs and get better in Italian. It is good to use paper to remember English words.

If you're interested you could play some English games so you can practice reading English. Also, I play on other games like Memrise. My sister plays on a website called Quizlet. You can make flash cards and other games that help you learn. If you are on a game and you do know what it means, you should go on google translate. I hope this helps. :) :D :p ;)
