- Start with a listening text. Go to the bottom of this page and under the ‘Categories’ section, select ‘Audio’.
Find an audio with a level of 3+ and listen to it. You can listen once, or more times if you want. How much did you understand? Did you understand all of the words and phrases, or just the general ideas in the listening?
- After you listen, write a short text about what your understood. You don’t need to use the same words as the listening, you can use your words but with the same ideas.
- After your write your text you can compare your text with the original text. You can find the original by searching for it’s title in the ‘Find it here’ window in the right sidebar.
- After you compare the original text with your text, you can record yourself speaking about the same topic. Again, you don’t need to use the same words as the listening, but the same ideas. You can write a few difficult words or phrases from the original text and use them when speaking to help you with your speaking. This can be a good way to learn new vocabulary or phrases and is good speaking practice, even though you’re not speaking to another person. It will help you to remember your new words and phrases and to reinforce the words and phrases you already know.
