News In Levels

Want to improve your English listening skills? Just starting out, or not very confident? Here's a reminder of a site that could be useful for you.

It's called "News In Levels". It is updated every week. Each news story is presented on three levels. Level 3 in its original form with an accompanying video. Level 2 is more elementary, with verbs in the past simple, while Level 1 is basic, and verbs tend to be in the present simple tense. In Levels 1 and 2 you can click on a video screen and hear someone reading the text.

The accent is American, which is important as it is essential for you to listen to different accents in order to develop your skills.

There is also Level Zero, but this is very basic indeed, with just a few words displayed and pronounced in a sound recording. The Level Zero stories are not repeated in the higher levels.

Click here in order to see "News In Levels". Do please let the rest of us know what you think by leaving a message on the Tag Board or in a Comment.

Coming up - a new Six Minute English Quiz.
Yours,
Mike
