PRLog - Sep. 1, 2008 - AMERICAN FORK, Utah -- Although there are thousands of online listening and video resources on the Internet, few are organized and designed for language learners. The result is that students are left to try to filter through this content for meaningful chunks of study material. The end result can be frustration.

Learning Names at www.esl-lab.com.
One of the most common ESL/EFL activities is teaching students how to introduce themselves. Without this knowledge, students will always be on the outside of all conversations looking in. To help students and teachers in learning more about this topic, Randall has created a series of free listening/speaking activities to aid in this process. The links below refer to different lessons on his site that teach personal introductions, and you can either follow this order or select the ones that best suit your needs.
Names: Learn common English names and how to pronounce them.

Haven't We Met Before?
Each activity has pre-listening, listening, and post-listening activities to help learners practice their listening, speaking, and even vocabulary skills. The recordings have been formatted in both RealMedia and Windows Media formats. (With Windows Media, you can slow down the audio playback for careful listening.)
