know something about the topic beforehand
Prepare your mind by thinking about the topic ahead of time.
Think about vocabulary you might encounter.
Predict what language and information you might hear.
3.Techniques for Practice
Listen for general and specific information
Listen the first time to get the gist (general idea)
Listen a second time for specific details.
Have a purpose or something to listen for
