A good listener

Listening comprehension exercises can sometimes be very demanding and even daunting. Can you understand in detail what is said to you even if there is some background noise? Can you understand most radio documentaries or TV news and current affairs programmes? Can you follow the essentials of lectures, talks and reports which use complex ideas and language?

If you sometimes have problems, don’t give up! There are lots of ways to improve. Try these links and enjoy English!

  • Randall’s ESL Cyber Listening Lab: Lots of listening exercises arranged in 3 levels. Choose your level and start working.
  • English Listening Resources: Includes free online news and culture broadcasts, online music, online movies, online radio and more.
  • Sing in English: a page with a huge array of songs. Some are good, some are incredibly awful, but they are there for us to sing along with the one you like (or hate) most. The lyrics are provided.

There are far more resources available. This is for you to start doing some practice.
