Autumn’s fully upon us and since it’s so rainy outside here, it’s time to get to studying! I’ve decided to spend every month focusing particularly on one skill out of the four main ones we use for language learning: listening, reading, writing, or speaking. Listening’s up first!

Hey, guys! So, we’re into June, everything’s great – and can you believe that the first month of the Super Challenge is over already? Now, what I’m planning to do each month is write a short post detailing what I did and whether I’ve noticed any progress.
[Quick note: if you don’t know what the Super Challenge is, then go here first! 🙂 ]
