ESL Cyber Listening Lab
This ESL language Web site helps ESL/EFL students improve their English
listening comprehension skills through practice with self-grading quiz
pages. This is a site which has lots and lots of recorded, real-life
dialogues which you can listen to. There are questions following each
to check your comprehension, and each has several other options as well.
You can read the text of the dialogue while listening to it. Unusual
words or idioms are written in a different color, and when you pass
the mouse over them, a definition pops up to explain them. A third option
is a missing word exercise where you can listen to the dialogue, read
along with it, and write in the words which are left out. To use this
Web site, you have to download RealPlayer, but it is free, and once
youíve done it, you donít have to do it again.
