Listening Mainpage

Listen to the stories or articles first without reading the text. Look at the text to figure out meaning and vocabulary. Listen and read at the same time, and finally, just listen again. For pronunciation and fluency practice, you can play the audio recording sentence by sentence, record your own voice with Voice Recorder and compare.
