Real Lives, Real Listening by Collins
Grammar in Use by Cambridge University Press
‘These books are exceptional because they guide learners carefully in how to understand fast, natural speech. They take time, patience with oneself and persistence to work with but the results for you as a learner will be phenomenal. Note: the speech recordings used are completely natural conversation, and often include a lot of connected speech. I would suggest choosing at least one level lower than your overall English level to start with.’C1E’s review of the Real Lives, Real Listening series
