ESL Listening Activity: Conversations by Theme at Randall ESL Cyber Listening Lab
Randall Davis, from Randall's ESL Cyber Listening, has created thematic listening/speaking activities for teachers and language learners so they can study (or teach) English based on topic for more focused practice.
By: Randall Davis
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.
Nice to Meet You
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.)
