The interactive listening comprehension excercises are suitable for intermediate
level learners. They are especially useful for those who want to prepare their
TOEFL test. The content is from broadcasts; therefore it is related to the
learners' daily lives. However, the number of the excercises and the questions
is not enough. Moreover, if all the listening excercises could provide
transcripts for the learners, it would be even better.

Technical Remarks:

Downloading the broadcast takes time.

Excellent instructions lead learners through a logical series of listening
exercises. Some links to outside reading resources are bad.

Technical Remarks:

RealAudio's loading of audio components tries the patience.
