Meskipun Ujian Nasional (UN) bukanlah sebuah penentu kelulusan saat ini tetapi mempersiapkan ujian dengan maksimal merupakan hal yang sifatnya wajib. Ujian Nasional bisa dijadikan tolak ukur untuk menguji kemampuan siswa selama mereka mengenyam pendidikannya selama tiga tahun terakhir. Oleh karena itu persiapan matang harus dilakukan sebelum hari -H bulan April mendatang.

Salah satu mapel Ujian Nasional adalah bahasa Inggris. Bahasa Inggris tingkat SMA dipandang sebagai mapel yang lumayan unik, karena terdiri dari dua bagian utama yaitu listening dan reading. Bila dibanding reading, kita pasti setuju bila listening juga sebagai materi yang sulit.

Latihan dan juga kebiasaan mendengarkan khususnya lagu, dialog, berita, podcasts dalam bahasa Inggris akan melatih pendengaran kita khususnya dalam bahasa Inggris. Juga mengenali tipikal soal bahasa Inggris SMA untuk bagian listening adalah hal yang utama.
