Monthly English Corner & Weekly Quote

  • September English Corner

    This time at the English Corner we will be talking about some tips on how to improve your listening. Just like children when they begin language acquisition, you need a lot of input. One way to get some listening input is to watch the “Evening News” on TV (between 6 pm and 7 pm in the USA). If you live abroad, VOA and the BBC offer news summaries at the beginning of each hour (via short-wave radio or on the Internet). Most news anchors have a standard accent. Listening to some talk-radio programs is also helpful. Listening to American Folk songs (on CD, on line, or as an mp3) and following along with the words is also a great idea; many websites promote this. As you sing along, your pronunciation and speaking will be improved.   © Mark Peter, M.A. Used with permission.
