(A typical British gentleman, WASP)


The use of a dictionary is one of the basic issues for learners of any Foreign Language. There are plenty of English dictionaries online such as Farlex or WordReference. Find words, meanings and collocations. [WordReference.com]



One day in my class I entered a web site to test my students´understanding of some messages. I simply wrote two easy messages choosing the voice of an Englishman. More or less it was:


Please, Anthony stop talking! / Tomorrow I will get all your notebooks, so go on doing those exercises


I must admit that it was a complete success. They loved it and to get things worse I kept on playing the recording twice and three times.

The web site is on this blogroll, on the right side column. [AT&T natural voices]


I think that oral language can be boosted thank to this application. Besides the teacher checks some words´pronunciation.


Special Podcasting

Even today one enjoys the listening of recording material via podcasts. BBC podcasting is top class quality. Get into the habit of podcast listening everyday.
