How important is listening practice?

Who doesn’t know this situation: You’re trying to listen to a movie, but you have a problem understanding everything. What are you doing? Carry on or change the program? There is a great temptation to give up. But in my opinion, this is wrong.

In some countries, films are always broadcasted in the original sound and provided with subtitles. My subjective observation is that people from these countries often speak better English, for example. They are immersing in a second language constantly. I try to listen as much as possible to documentaries or movies in other languages and build up to something like a bubble where I can dive into different languages I’m learning.

Of course, you can’t acquire a language only by listening. Speaking is just as important.
