Well listening you can always improve. Just if you have an internet, there are many vocabulary sites, you can turn on one and listen to the conversation and finally you will be asked questions, you can write down the answers. There are lots of exercise and you can practise them.

Try to go to www.about.com. This site has many folds and it has language learning wherein you learn step by step just like in school. It has also audio where you can listen to short sentences and repeat after it. Its really a geat site! Learning is not only an advantage but also fun. I wish you Luck! PM me if you have problem locating it.

To me, the best way to improve listening is to speak instead of merely listen. I always like to repeat what native people say if I find that how I put is different from them. I learn this way from my american english instructor. She said the main problem of foreign student leaning english is they always keep their habit in putting their words. If you keep learn how native people speak, it won't any problem in listening.

don't worry about that, listening should have to pay a lot of time to practice, i heard voa, but i think it is too difficult for beginner to understand, because the topic,it speak, are so boring for us that we can not pay attention, so i want to introduce some another material for you, which is very useful. i listening scientific american, which is also hard, but it can really help you to promote your listening skill! and you should have dictation, which means when you listen a sentence, you write down, and by check your sentence with the text, and find out what words are your weakness. by listening again and agian, you must promote.
