A new weekly dictation to help learners of the English language to improve their listening comprehension.
How to use:
- Don’t look at the transcript (text) below.
- Listen to the podcast (the dictation is repeated twice) and try to write everything you hear down.
- 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.
- Listen to the dictation again. You should understand some of the words that you didn’t understand before.
I’ll always remember my wedding day, mostly for the wrong reasons! I bought my wedding dress months in advance. Unfortunately, I couldn’t go for the final dress fitting because I was ill. I had also discovered a new bakery that year. On my wedding day, when I went to put on the dress, I couldn’t zip it up at the back. I asked my mother to help. She couldn’t do it. Eventually, there were 5 of us, including my dad trying to close it. We managed to close it. However, during the wedding, I was walking down the aisle when I felt something, a lot of cold air on my back. My wedding dress had burst open at the back. Everybody could see my bottom – my friends, my family, everyone! That is, everyone except my new husband!
