Web-Based

Here are resources for practicing listening skills. The one I have been using most is Randall’s ESL Cyber Listening Labs. If I am missing anything, add it to the comments or contact me. You can also search for more read aloud stories, read along stories, and listening practice.

Podcasting’s popularity has led to a boom in free audio files for downloading and syndicating. However, these are usually home-produced and may not be the best quality and speakers may talk too fast. If a specific subject or hobby interests you, then it can be a way to practicing listening to something you love and recognizing terms. Robin Good’s Lastest News has a long list of places for finding and submitting podcasts.
