Technologically and linguistically adventurous EFL teacher

I’m putting together some activities to help students understand more fluent English speech, ready for a seminar on listening skills I’m running next weekend.  One of the activities is micro-dictations of common questions spoken at as normal a speed as possible. It can be difficult to find things like this ready-prepared, so I’ve recorded some and embedded them here:

What’s your name?
Where are you from?
What do you do?
What are you going to have?
What are you going to do tomorrow?
Did you have a good holiday?


Listening attentivelyI’d be interested to hear how you use them.

  1. nice post , i wonder if making it would be useful making recordings more “authentic” by using corpus information e.g. StringNet interface shows the construction – what be [pos pn] name has sometimes erm/er/and before it – http://www.lexchecker.org/hyngram/hyngram_relation.php?hyngram_cjson=%5B4757,%20161,%201737,%2030161%5D&meta_offset=194582673&relation=expand&target_na1_i=0#

    • That sounds like an interesting idea Mura. I just came up with these while I was putting the post together, but I might try that in the future. Thanks!
