Here is a “shadowing” training method from a textbook that I’m reading.

4 steps of the method:

Step 1. Preparation
Memorize all words you’re not familiar with in order to understand the listening task. (Yup, memorize them all, right here, right now. About 10 words.)

Step 2. Let’s listen!

Listen carefully without looking at the script. (Don’t read. Check how much you can understand relying only on your hearing.)

Step 3. Let’s listen again!
Listen carefully and fill in the blanks of the full script with the words you have memorized from step 1. (Now, listen while reading. Check your answers. Reinforce your memory of the new terms.)

Step 4. Shadowing.
Follow the speech like a shadow. Listen and repeat what is being said, imitate the intonation, pause, and rhythm. (My favorite part.)

This training takes only 15 minutes a day. ###
