Tips: The first time you listen don't look at the transcript and try to understand the main points only.

Then listen again while you look at the transcript and study the conversation and the vocabulary.

After that, listen again several times without looking at the transcript.

Come back after a few days and listening again to help fix the vocabulary in your long-term memory.

Keep a vocabulary book and record whole sentences. It's a good idea to write a translation into your own language below each English sentence. This will help you do some revision later. Cover the English sentence and try to say it by looking at the sentence in your own language.
