ESL and IELTS Help 4 U

Improve your listening

Posted on: July 17, 2010

There is one website which is great for your listening practice!

This website is  good because, first, you can listen to a short news story which is interesting and has current (new) information.

Then you can read the same news story to see if you understood what you heard.

Then you can see the meanings of new vocabulary words that are used in the story.

Very good!

Here it is: http://www.bbc.co.uk/

Scroll to the bottom of the first page.

Click on Learning English.

Click on Words in the News.

You will see a news summary and a place to click to hear the report. Listen first before scrolling down to see the words in writing. After listening one or two, or more times, read the report and study the vocabulary.

There are many other news reports for you on this website and new ones come out often. Come to this website weekly for listening and vocabulary.

Check out other English lessons on this website.  They’re quite good!

Have fun! Enjoy your English study!
