S1E20 – Quick Dictations – The Song on the Bus

Episode Notes

A new weekly dictation to help learners of the English language to improve their listening comprehension.

How to use:
1. Don’t look at the transcript (text) below.
2. Listen to the podcast (the dictation is repeated twice) and try to write everything you hear down.
3. Check your text with the text of the dictation. If any word is different, it is probably a listening comprehension mistake. Try to listen again to the word and repeat the pronunciation a few times. If you don’t understand the word when you read it; it is probably new vocabulary.
4. Listen to the dictation again. You should understand some of the words that you didn’t understand before.

Transcript:
Have you ever hated a song? I hate one song, but not because it’s bad. I used to travel to work by bus every morning. It was a slow bus with a lot of stops. The bus driver liked to listen to the radio. It was a typical station for pop music. It had all the latest hits. However, I remember that for one month, they played the same song every day! Now, I can’t stand that song at all! If I hear it, I have to cover my ears. It’s a good song though! –
