ESL Gold | CI Practice
This offers listening exercises and practice quizzes that help to develop the listening skills for understanding complex sentences. The listening block of this program provides video clips on different topics from basic conversational phrases like greetings, describing people, feelings, and situations, to advanced discussions where some ideas are elaborated and paraphrased. The program allows you to choose from different levels of difficulty, from beginner to advanced. Also, there are activities that help with distinguishing the most common consonants such as “CH”, “F”, “L”, “P”, “R”, “S”, “TH”.
You can listen to a video where pairs of similar sounding words are presented to help you to learn how to distinguish them without a specific context. For example: ray-lay-way; berated-belated; rest-lest-test; though-dough-low; etc.
