Is your listening conversation ready?

Do you remember the listening tests you had at school? Did you find them stressful? Me too.

And then you go to an English-speaking country and you don’t understand when people are chatting quickly. It’s frustrating right? Especially when you have so much to say.

I’ve created the Leo Listening Test so you can evaluate your conversational listening skills. That means it’ll tell you how good you are at understanding informal, chatty English.

You won’t just guess the answers. You’ll transcribe them and you’ll find out if you understood with my feedback. I’ll also explain why conversational English can be hard to understand, so you can follow conversations with other speakers in different contexts.

The test only takes a few minutes to complete. Just click on the “take the test” button to access the test. You’ll get my personalised feedback on your difficulties 24-48 hours later. And who knows? You might just be surprised at the results.
