I've started to listen to audio books and I think it is good idea, but I need to know if anyone of you experienced listening audio books. Does that help improve your English? If so what would you suggest me to do?

-have fun and don't be shy to speak those words loudly even if you sound funny

Also, I have a severely autistic brother with learning difficulties who can't talk but I have noticed that when we listen to audio books (children's ones with lots of noises and different voices) together, he often tries to mimic the sounds and says things afterwards, although we often can't understand him.
