Intermediate Listening. 20 SITES TO IMPROVE YOUR LISTENING. Listening is difficult for most learners.


The first thing I hear from students who have traveled abroad is, “Americans talk so much faster than you do”. As teachers, we tend to talk a bit slower, with more enunciation and emphasis on intonation. But are we doing students a disservice with this habit? I know after teaching in Brazil for over 10 years, I speak much slower, so much so that when I call back to the states, people ask if I’m ok or worse, dying as they notice my rate of speed while talking is dramatically less rapid than before I left. Since building the Facebook group “English Students worldwide”, every day I receive a text or email from learners asking for help with their fluency. Surely, you as students should be doing more outside of class to improve. Podcasts and audio streams are far from new, but the best thing about them are the sheer numbers that exist on almost every subject.

There are thousands of sites to get great podcasts. Another source from NPR. Listening Exercises. 03 Lifetime - level 3 (Oxford English Video) English da zero Audio - Libri Mondadori.


Podcast - Learn English - ESL Lessons from ILAC. Listening to English. Teaching listening – example lesson world cup. This post was inspired by a listening lesson I did twice with two different elementary level 1-1 students last week.

Teaching listening – example lesson world cup

It is based on the listening from Breaking News English which you can find here. I decided to do something different from what the lesson plan on the website suggested, and devise my own procedure, taking into account the 15 listening tips I wrote about last month: “Planning a listening lesson – 15 tips”, which try to take you beyond the standard CELTA approach. First, please read through the lesson plan below and identify which of the 15 listening tips I used when designing the lesson procedure. Afterwards, you can check with my comments and reflections below the lesson plan. Lesson procedure Lead-in: Are you enjoying the World Cup? Listening for gist: Don’t worry about understanding every single word. Speaking: Do you share the speaker’s opinion? Relistening: What was difficult about the first listening? What new information did you learn after the second listening?

She had carrot soup, pasta with meat and vegetables and more carrot, and yoghurt. Today we visit Scotland, to find out what a Scottish schoolgirl thinks of her school meals. And because the European Cup Football matches have reached an interesting stage, and poor old England have been knocked out by Italy, this might be a good time to learn a new football expression. Martha Payne is 9 years old. She lives in a small community in Scotland called Lochgilphead. Martha is interested in the food at her school. Children in other schools, and in other countries, started to read Martha’s blog. And at this point, the bureaucrats who run the education system in the part of Scotland where Martha lives became aware of her blog. Martha’s headteacher told Martha the bad news, and Martha was sad and wrote a final blog post to say goodbye to her many readers.
