Dictation Do you want to improve your English listening skills? What about your spelling, writing, and typing skills? Dictations can help in many ways. They even help you learn new vocabulary in context. These EnglishClub dictations come in three different levels. Try the short dictations first and work your way up.

Listen to News Each Tuesday EnglishClub publishes a short audio news report in easy English from the previous week. With this resource you can practise your listening, reading, writing and even speaking. Preview the vocabulary and read the gapfill text. Play the news report and try to fill in the blanks. Motivating speaking activities for lower levels Planning time has been shown to increase production in speaking tasks. Lower level learners often find it especially difficult to speak spontaneously, so these activities incorporate ‘thinking time’ during which learners can prepare for speaking by planning what they are going to say, and asking the teacher or using a dictionary to look up missing vocabulary. The following activities are relatively short, with minimal materials preparation time for the teacher. They are designed for use as a warmer or a filler in the middle or at the end of a class.

Learn to Fika If you learn only one Swedish word, make it fika (fee-ka). Confusingly, it’s both a noun and a verb. Strictly speaking it means a coffee break. But you get a better idea of what it’s all about - and why it’s so important in Swedish culture - by thinking of it as a verb. Loosely translated, it means spending time over a coffee and a pastry - preferably a sweet bun - chatting and generally hanging out with a friend. It can happen any time; possibly several times a day. "ESL English as a Second Language Listening and Reading Audiobooks" Arch of Triumph by Erich Maria Remarque It is 1939. Despite a law banning him from performing surgery, Ravic —a German doctor and refugee living in Paris— has been treating some of the city’s most elite citizens. Forbidden to return to his own country, and dodging the everyday dangers of jail and deportation, Ravic manages to hang on —all the while searching for the Nazi who tortured him back in Germany. And though he’s given up on the possibility of love, life has a curious way of taking a turn toward the romantic. Paris - synonymous with elegance, good food, and love - is described so beautifully in the eyes of Ravic that by the middle of the book you could swear that you've been to Paris.

List of Conversation Topics One of the most frustrating things I have ever experienced around a girl, is if I and her run out of things to talk about. Since you found this post I assume you know what I’m talking about, and maybe you are interested in learning how to avoid awkward silence. I’m thinking about the teeth pooling moments where the awkward silence just takes over the situation, you are just sitting their smiling while desperately in your mind scrambling for something just mildly interesting say, but you just can think of anything, you mind is a total black out, you can’t even remember your own name at this point. Finally you hear yourself saying something completely uninteresting, like: “sooo.. do you come here often”, she says “no its my first time!” And then the conversation dries up once again, the awkward silence start to eat you both up from the inside until one of you can’t stand the social pressure and thus make up some excuse to leave.
