Listening Comprehension: Written Exercises Now Available
Dear Friends of QualityTime-ESL,
This is to let you know that we are now offering written exercises for our listening comprehension recordings. There are four recordings that you can find on the page Listening Comprehension and download directly to your computer. They all come with both continuous readings and listen and repeat readings. Normally, you should begin with No. 1 Honesty and then do No. 2 When the Iceberg Arrives, No. 3 The End of the World is Near, and finally No. 4 The Little Car That Could. The cloze (gap-filling) exercise for Honesty is given as a sample.
The written files (organized in packs) provide cloze and other types of exercises to reinforce the assimilation of language. These listening comprehension texts contain 128 of the basic structures learners need to feel comfortable with English. You will also find all the main verb tenses and masses of useful vocabulary in these texts and/or accompanying exercises. All this in just four texts! If learners memorize these texts and practice reciting them, they will progress very quickly. It has been proven! To purchase these written materials just go to the store.
The packs (zip format) even come with assignments. And for further practice with the main structures and tenses, we suggest that you work on the podcasts with oral drills. They are free.
Parts of the written exercises may contain words or sentences in French, as they were originally written for French-speaking students. Teachers all over the world can easily convert these exercises by typing in a translation in the native language of their students. (The files are in both PDF and MS Word.) Thus the exercises will be customized to suit the needs of the learners everywhere! And teachers can be proud of offering personalized materials to their students.
The written exercises are available at the store for a small fee. Your participation will help us offer even more such exercises in the future. Of course, all these files and 1,500 other files are available on the QualityTime-ESL DVD, which accompanies QualityTime-ESL: The Digital Resource Book.
