How did you improve speaking or listening skills of English?
What kinds of apps, movies or methods etc do you recommend to improve speaking and listening skills for English?
I went to Malaysia from 4th to 7th this month and wanted to enjoy conversation more fluently. I can understand so-so if it's one on one and slowly, but I often ask again many times and cannot talk without thinking. In addition, it was very hard to catch up conversation in group talk.
English is just a tool to communicate for me. My goal is enjoying conversation with people from various countries, discussing about each studies or collecting more information effectively etc. So I often try to learn English without textbooks, instead of that, I read scientific reports or write comments on Facebook or play POKEMON games in English etc. I couldn't continue to study just English, but this way may be not effective to accelerate improving English...?
