More Listening & Reading Exercises

Here is another site from Voice of America. It allows you to listen to a text one sentence at a time. This way you will be able to practice your pronunciation and comprehension at your own speed.

At the end you will see texts and videos of Pres. Obama. You can watch him and see the words he is speaking. It's for advanced students, but go a head and try it. I think you'll enjoy watching him and really understanding what Obama is saying.

1000 Listening Exercises!

Becoming a good English speaker begins by learning to be a good English listener! The only way to do this is to LISTEN LISTEN LISTEN! If you can't get out too often to meet English speaking people, you can practice right here by listening to people from all over the world.

I suggest that you listen to each lesson at least five times while reading the text - use headphones if you have them- and then five more times without the text. Then go on and do the quizzes and interactive exercises. Browse through the topics and find the ones that interest you the most.
