Elementary podcasts

Elementary podcasts
Elementary Podcasts are suitable for learners with different levels of English. Here are some ways to make them easier (if you have a lower level of English) or more difficult (if you have a higher level of English). You can choose one or two of these suggestions – you don't have to follow all of them! Making it easier Read all the exercises before you listen to the podcast. Look up the words in the exercises that you don't know in a dictionary. Making it harder Listen to the podcast before you read the exercises. Now, listen to the podcast and do the exercises on the following tabs.
