Listening for learning | Carol Goodey This post is in response to Nathan Hall’s invitation to take part in an ELT Research Blog Carnival. The first topic is ‘listening’. In a recent post, the Secret DOS asks , along with many other questions, if there is any more to language learning than memorisation, regurgitation and evaluation. I’d say there is. What that more is, though, may depend on who’s doing the learning and on what and why they want to learn. An essential element, however, must be that learners develop an understanding of how the language is used in different contexts and for different purposes by reading and listening to what and how things are written or said in that language.
The Fridge Magnet Game is part of WPSU’s Blue Ribbon Readers , a collection of seven interactive games designed to help elementary school students gain reading comprehension competences. The game provides practice with the monitoring and clarifying strategies. It requires students to identify confusing words (by monitoring) and to replace them with words from an alternate word pool that make sense in the sentence (clarifying).

Lyrics Training is a Web application that allows you to read and listen to the lyrics from music videos and can be used as a fun and interactive way for language teachers and trainers to introduce new vocabulary and grammar to their students in a classroom setting. This free online language learning course will introduce you to the features and functionality of Lyrics Training, you will learn how to choose a song in the language you are learning and listen to the lyrics of the song word by word. Lyrics Training allows students to fill in the lyrics as they go along, and the difficulty level they choose decides how many words in a sentence are missing and they must fill in. This online language learning tool is particularly useful for students of foreign languages who want a fun and entertaining way to learn the correct pronunciation of words and it will improve their listening skills as students must identify words from a song.

EDTEC 470 - Adding Recordings to Your Page with Vocaroo San Diego State University • Spring 2013 One thing that works against using web-based resources with younger learners is the fact that most of the web is written at a reading level of 8th grade or higher. You can make those resources accessible to early readers by supplementing them with audio that you record yourself. A free site called Vocaroo lets you do just that. Mini-Project
