Listening Practice




Listening is a skill that needs lots of practice not only for the ESL/EFL learner but for all learners as well. Here are some listening activities I found useful for my ESL/EFL classes.


Diana's Place is filled with useful teacher and student resources. It was created for educational, entertainment and evaluation. The exercises were created with Hot Potatoes. This quiz page has some excellent poems and stories for listening comprehension exercises that are more than drill and practice. I am sure you will enjoy the background music and the well chosen content that echoes Dyana's motto that learning can be fun.
