Due to nature of my work I hardly get anytime for myself. There is no doubt, I read a lot but its usually work related like what I am going to write. However, I always loved reading books in my childhood, and I want to read them again but this on the go life does not allow me luxury of reading. So, one of my friend recommended me to check out Audiobooks and told me to get a membership of Audible. (It’s an affiliate link we may earn commissions if you end up joining Audible via our link).
On her request I signed up for membership and decided to give it a try. I downloaded the audiobook to my device. Hey, before I jump into my experience of listening books.

I downloaded the book directly into my iPad. Connected my Headphones and started to listen to it while I was commuting. After coming back to home, I started listening my book in bedroom on Amazon Echo 2nd Generation while making my bed and cleaning my room. So, that was the biggest plus point for me.

I am going to be honest despite being known as a writer in my industry I learned a lot from listening. My pronunciations have been improved. While listening to audiobooks I came to know that there are major flaws in my pronunciations. However, I rectified many errors by just listening to the words.
Improvement in Vocabulary
Vocabulary can be improved by reading, researching and listening to books. The narrators uses higher levels of words which can expose us to new words which may never heard before.

Audiobooks are great way to improve your learning skills. The most beneficial part is that you can access them anywhere and anytime. Instead of listening to music put on audiobook in your device. Thanks to advancement in technology most of the devices can play audiobooks flawlessly. You can use any device from mp3 players to Smart speakers.
