EnglishClub Site Of The Month April 2012 ~ Listen and Write
Listen and Write is a dictation site for language learners. Start by creating a login so that you can save your scores. Take a test to see what your listening level is. Note that your typing must also be good to get a high score! There are three different modes to use. Full mode requires you to type in each word that you hear. Quick mode allows you to just type in the first letter of each word. Blank mode is a fill in the gaps exercise. Most of the recordings are from Voice of America or YouTube. There are currently 7 categories to pick from including news, interviews, and TED talks. Click on the Hint button if you can’t get the next word. Choose Auto Repeat if you want the sentences to be repeated. You may need to try a few different dictations before you get the hang of this site.
