Audio resource libraryELT audio resources – lively and authentic listening

Finding good listening material to work with in the classroom is always a challenge. It’s too long … too fast … too complex … too inauthentic … too dull …  We don’t claim to have solved all of these problems, but we have created a collection of original recordings with activity ideas, language resources, and transcripts. These include role-play conversations, authentic vox-pops, pronunciation work, mini radio features, short interviews, as well as readings of news stories from The Week.
