Academic listening

I hope you’ve all been enjoying the good weather. The long evenings in the UK are just wonderful, even longer if you’re further north!

Academic listening skills should be one of the easier skills for students to improve because of the number of resources that are available. So, yes, here’s another good site for you to explore. Follow the link and then in the first ‘domain’ box choose Academic English. In the other boxes choose All and you’ll see a big list of listening exercises to work with. What’s useful is that you can read a description about the passage and the reader before you listen. It’s designed really well and has a lot of exercises for you to come back to again and again. It’s called the English Listening Lounge and you’ll find it here.
