About ESL Newsletter: Listening Practice

Good morning (or whatever time of day it is wherever you are). Here's the current About Education ESL Newsletter. This one features listening.  The internet is full of places to practice listening: movies, learning videos, audio books, online radio stations and podcasts. Here are just a few: 
  • Charles Kelly's Many Things site (free, many interesting things for English learners, not just listening)
  • English Listening ($3/month subscription) I just found this so don't know enough about the site to recommend it. If interested, please check out the site thoroughly first. Let us know what you think about this resource.
What are your favorite listening sites? Please share them with us.

This week's newsletter features two listening quizzes, as well as some suggestions on improving English fluency by learning from your mistakes. There's also a pointer to 18 stories that contain idioms and expressions in context with each idiom defined.

Using Knowledge of a Movie Plot to Practice
This week's newsletter features a lesson that asks students to describe the final scene of a movie to practice a wide range of forms. There's also a review of how to use make and do, and a look at using dialogues to practice reading comprehension and speaking in class.
