Randall's ESL Cyber Listening Lab

Randall's ESL Cyber Listening Lab

"The site has been designed with the specific goal and narrow focus of providing easy-to-use listening activities that can be used on almost any Internet connection"(Randall) This website has three levels of listening difficulties...easy, middle and difficult. Using RealPlayer or Divac a student is encouraged to listen to the activity and then answer questions online and continue the excercise by recording something themselves. Every excercise includes a Pre-Listening skill, an actual Listening skill, and then a follow-up activity.

This is an excellent resource for in-class guided conversation practice as well as self-study. The quizzes provide students with instant feedback, allowing them to target areas of language study. The variety of exercises is incredible and vast and provides a great glimpse of American culture as well as valuable language instruction lessons. The only negative I see is that that site is quite busy. Non-native speakers may struggle with navigating the site on their own. There are lots of links that would take you away from the exercises.
Time spent reviewing site: 1 - 2 hours.
