Back To The Basics
Listen, Listen, Listen to well-sent code. Listen at every opportunity as well as at planned practice sessions. Listen to the radio, to tapes, to computer-generated materials. Do it whenever you don't have something else to do which requires conscious mental activity: try it during lunch, while driving -- listen and enjoy it. There are several kinds of listening -- first, listening at any speed where we can understand all or nearly all of what is sent; next, there is listening at speeds where we can "read" maybe 75% of it; and finally there is listening to sending so fast that we can only catch some letters or a word here and there.
