Listening!

Hello.

Every lesson I try to encourage people to listen more, especially online where there is now such a wide variety of material.

Teachers of English often record their students, using both audio and video. Their students' voices and images can then be seen online. Sites such as 'Podomatic' are often used for this.

Here's an example. A teacher has recorded students
talking about what they are wearing. And if you scroll down a bit further, listen and watch Andrew, a teacher, describing what he is wearing.

Was this easy or difficult? Write your opinion on the Tag Board or leave a comment.

And if you want to listen and read the transcript at the same time, here is this week's instalment of
"Words In The News" on the BBC's "Learning English" site.

Please do record your comments on this Blog!

More tomorrow,
Mike
