Passed Deutsch A1 course & got 85 out of 100. Need to improve listening part.
So... you are asking for tips on how to improve your listening?
Edit: (where are my manners?) congrats on passing the test! For me the keys to improve my listening skills have been:
- Listening to German music. If you can stand a bit of heavy music, Eisbrecher has lyrics that are usually clear, and not to hard to follow. Of course there are a huge amount of Pop, rock, rap artists, etc. Look around a bit on google and youtube. Listening to a bit of German music (with clear and comprehensible lyrics) every day, can do wonders.
- Listening to German radio. Just google it, and you'll find lots of channels you can stream for free. Listen a bit while working, while on the phone, etc.
- Watching German shows and videos on Youtube. Kids' shows to begin with. For instance I found some episodes of Pokémon dubbed in German, and watched those. Pretty easy to follow, and since I've grown up with the show, knowing the context was a great help.
- Speaking with a couple of friendly and patient German people. Nothing is better than that.
