Hi,

Someone sent a video in an online group. The video is about an archery competition, but also in English! I felt so happy and said:

It's a good video to improve both listening and archery skills.

I wonder if the phrase is used correctly.

Thanks a lot

    Yes, the sentence is good.

    I don't think I've ever heard "listening and archery skills" before. But it fits.:)

    There's nothing grammatically wrong with the sentence, but it sounds strange.
    Like Dojibear, I have never heard "listening and archery skills" paired like this.
    I think it would be less shocking to hear:
    It's a good video to improve both archery skills and English listening skills.
