On my first day having internship I was taking around to familiarise myself with the working environment and I had an induction training as well.
The staff were friendly and ready to help. Today is my 5th day and it's been a great experience already

The listening is quite easy.
The player felt excited for his first day in a division club.
I always feel curious and enthousiast when making my first day somewhere.

I thought this listening section was easy. I got perfect score although I didn't listen clearly. I enjoyed it, just like the player's who join at a new club for the first time. Just like him, I'm feeling excited on my first day in a new job/university.

He felt a little bit nervous. It's his first top division club. But he is welcomed by everyone and he starts meeting his teammates.

I think I felt the same on a first day at University. I didn't know where to go or what to make special attention on. But it didn't last too long. Soon, I got into the routine and everything became more organized.

I think the listening is quite easy. But it is very good for listening. I have learn some vocabularies such as chief scout, phisyo. The player fefl relax on his first at a news clun in top division. People in the club are friendly. So he maybe be feel confident.
For me, I felt excited on my first day at news university because I love meeting people and speaking with them.

This is a great place for my student to learn English he was getting really low marks in English at his school in Hungary back in September of 2016, and after only five months of studying twice a week here on this site for one hour each lesson he has brought his mark up from a 2 to a 4 in all areas of vocabulary , speaking, listening and writing , as an ESL teacher I cannot express my joy enough seeing my students succeed and reach their English Language learning goals. I am so pleased that I stumbled upon this site that my student finds so engaging. Having said that however there seems to be a technical glitch and I am not sure who to talk to about this , when I enable the share my screen feature on Skype this whole site navigability slows right now and it takes forever to scroll down the page and it freezes then starts up again then freezes then goes too far down the page and i have to scroll up, I am using a new Laptop with Windows 10 Anniversary Edition, could this be what is causing this to happen?

Hi Carole Ann Marie

Thank you so much for your message. It's really great to hear that what we do is motivating young students and helping them learn. I hope that your student continues to progress and, of course, continues to enjoy the Premier Skills English website. As for your problem, there have been a few glitches with the scrollbar and the three-page format on the website and I'm very sorry that it has been causing a few issues. But, the good news is that we are in the process of redesigning the website and in a couple of weeks it should be up and running. The site will return to a one-page design and I hope this will resolve a lot of the problems that you are having. If you would like to help, we could send you an email once the new design is ready and you could give us some feedback regarding its usability? It would be great to get some further feedback from you. 

Thanks again for your message,

Rich - The Premier Skills English Team

Tips

Become a better listener

Remember! You don't need to hear every word, to understand everything in the listening.

If there is a word that you can't hear, think about the rest of the sentence and guess what the word is.

You will be surprised how much you can understand, even when you don't hear everything.
