Top 10 Recommended Sites for Listening
15 Oct 2014 admin
We do know that the best way to improve listening skills is by listening. You don’t learn riding a bike by simply reading a manual that instructs you to hop on and pedal without losing your balance. What you need is an actual bike that you can ride. The same way with listening – you need materials that you can listen to. With that, we give you a list of websites that we think would be of great help in your preparation for the IELTS. Some of these websites have free downloadable audio files with transcription in their archives – all you need to do is to make the time and visit.
