The Teacher's Corner - Lesson Plans, Worksheets and Activities Organising the classroomDeciding what you want to do... 787 Listening Worksheets Listening can be a challenge even for experienced ESL students. Scoring high on a grammar quiz may be a piece of cake, but it’s not always easy to make out every word a native speaker says - especially when that speaker is talking at normal speed, without pauses between words. Even so, listening is a crucial component of modern ESL teaching, right up there with grammar, speaking, and writing. If you want to teach your class effectively, you need to teach them listening. The question of how, exactly to approach that, though, isn’t always clear. Whatever your approach - or set of approaches - to listening exercises, BusyTeacher.org has worksheets just for you. The exercises offered on our listening worksheets come in a wide range of formats - from exercises in which students transcribe interviews with celebrities, to ones in which they listen to popular songs or even read-aloud poems.

The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe Today we present the short story "The Tell-Tale Heart" by Edgar Allan Poe. Here is Shep O'Neal with the story. True! Above all was the sense of hearing. It is impossible to say how first the idea entered my brain. Now this is the point. I was never kinder to the old man than during the whole week before I killed him. And this I did for seven long nights -- but I found the eye always closed; and so it was impossible to do the work; for it was not the old man who was a problem for me, but his Evil Eye. On the eighth night, I was more than usually careful in opening the door. I kept still and said nothing. Then I heard a noise, and I knew it was the sound of human terror. I knew what the old man felt, and felt sorry for him, although I laughed to myself. When I had waited a long time, without hearing him lie down, I decided to open a little -- a very, very little -- crack in the lantern. But even yet I kept still. He cried once -- once only.
