Method for dictees

Hi, it's not clear to me from the instructions whether you're meant to attempt the dictees after only one listen, or whether it's better to listen more than once. Is there a guideline here, or is it just left to the student to choose?

Thanks

The only guideline is what's best for you to get the most out of it in terms of learning experience. What I did was to listen to it once or twice in its entirety. Then I would play each part as many times as I needed to understand what was being said. I would also listen to the solution and make sure my eyes could reconcile what my ears were hearing. Then, in the end, I would listen to the entire text again, with eyes closed. It was amazing how much more I was able to understand once I had completed the exercise. It's always important to end a lesson on a positive note and with a feeling of accomplishment.
