If you want to improve your listening (and spelling) skills, try out this site: Listen and Write. They have taken media from a wide range of sources, found transcripts, and made them into dictation activities. This means that you can listen to (or watch, many of the sources are on youtube) a news report, an interview, a song, a film trailer or a TV show and then listen to it in “chapters” so you can focus on 5-10 seconds of text at a time. It’s a great way to practice your listening while following your interests.
