Oral Comprehension sites

updated November 2016...

Hello English learners!! The Oral Comprehension label in the column on your right with its list of links is active again. :-)
I hope you'll use it 15mn everyday. Listening is the key to improving your English!

 EVERY DAY. EVERY SINGLE DAY!
1. Choose one audio documents in any of the suggested links.
2. Listen to the audio doc at least three times. (LISTEN x 3 minimum) It doesn't matter if you don't understand everything. 
3. Try to answer the quiz when available.
4. Listen to the document once again with the script IF you want to and if it is provided.

http://elllo.org The best with Randall’s but all of it is not free anymore. Too bad, I loved ELLLO (English Language Listening Lab Online) 
Still, some lessons are still here for free! 
There used to be more than a thousand short audio documents, with vocabulary help, comprehension exercises and the script. The script is only here for you to check your comprehension after you’ve listened to the audio for at least three times... Teaching is repeating.

Many documents. The page has been archived and is not updated anymore but the audio / video documents and the exercises are still available. Use them!

This is grammar mainly but useful!

This one will ask you to evaluate yourself and do some easy exercises and the site will memorize you. you'll like it!
