10 Best Free Listening Websites with Quizzes to Practise for Listening Exams

Growing up, I never had the opportunity to do any extra practice to improve my listening skills. We didn’t have the Internet and the thousand possibilities it offers to learners of any language nowadays. The teachers had an old tape player that sometimes stopped and started on its own and old tapes that ended up sounding distorted and most of the times unlistenable so if you wanted to get better at listening, you just listened to the radio and struggled to understand the lyrics and sing along. Not that I ever complained. That was the perfect excuse to listen to music while claiming to be working hard. So, exams are just around the corner and I know you’re beginning to freak out.

These are, in my opinion, the best sites with quizzes to practise listening comprehension. Check also: Strategier för moderna språk. 50 Women Who Changed The World. Women who changed the world.
