Learn English Through Dictation
Improve your listening skills, writing skills, reading skills, spelling and punctuation!
You will need a set of headphones, somewhere quiet, a pencil and a sheet of paper.
The sound files are large, so be patient.
Play the .mp3 files (they are large so be patient).
Listen to the first file - Just Listen. I will speak, quite quickly, in a natural voice.
Listen to second file - listen and write. I will speak more slowly.
Listen to the first file again - Check and correct.
Check what you have written. You will find the text at the bottom of each dictation page.
There will be a new dictation each month.
