If you listen to English short news every day, you can learn very fast step by step. You will understand basic English fast and you will not have to translate English news. Why?
When you learn English, you have to learn in whole sentences and in context.
You have to learn how to understand the whole sentences with no translations. When you listen to people in your native language, you don't translate. You simply understand. Understanding is easy. The same has to be in English.
Students who translate English texts, do exercises and do tests are very good at translating, doing exercises and tests, but they have usually a big problem with English listening and understanding fast in real life. In real life, nobody waits for your translation. People usually use simple and basic English when they speak but they use it fast. You have to understand with no translation like in your native language. If not, you cannnot be part of communication because you are slow. With translating, you will always be slow. These words are maybe hard but they are true.
You also have to listen to every new word 5 or 10 times if you want to remember it. That's why we use the same simple English words in our short news. If you read and hear the same English words again and again, you will understand them and remember them. If you know words from one level perfectly, you can go to a higher level and learn new words. It is important to go step by step, and read and hear words which are used in English often. This is what we do. In our short stories, we use words which are used in English often.
So, if you want to understand ESL stories fast and learn fast, read simple English stories every day 15 minutes or more. You will go from basic English up. For communication with non-native speakers, you usually need 3000 words. This is our Level 2. For communication with native speakers, you usually need 5000 words.
This is our Level 3. In every short news story, we mark words which are higher than the level itself so that you can see what words are more difficult and what you need to know if you want to go higher.
