Listening Speaking and Earthquakes

  Hi guys,

Just a few notes on some listening and speaking sites. I have added several speaking sites on the right hand side. A couple of them are a bit difficult. Right now Learn American English on Line and Speak English Today are the two easiest ones for you. Both of them will give you the chance to heaar your own voice. You need to have a microphone in your computer. If you have a laptop, your computer will already have a microphone, but it will not be strong. You need to get a good one if you want to get serious about practicing speaking on line.

I am also including several specific listening exercises from ESL-Lab. These will help you to get ready for your final listening test.

Arches National Park    This last one is a mini-lecture so you can practice for your exam. .

It looks like the situation in Japan is still very serious. The people of Japan are in my thoughts and prayers as they go through this terrible time. I hope you can take a few minutes to think about them too.

I suggest that you go to the two following news web sites to update yourself on what is happening there.
It is an unbelievable story, and we should all be informed. The pictures say a lot.

 CTV News I    and         CBC News
