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 often go to the park after work. I like to find a nice quiet bench and sit down! I often wonder what it would be like to be a duck. It became an obsession of mine. I wanted to experience a duck’s life. One day, I decided to act upon my dream. I bought a duck costume and went to the park. I then got into the water and started to swim like a duck. However, it wasn’t that great. I stopped after 3 days. I didn’t mind the cold temperatures, I didn’t mind the dirty water, but I can’t stand bread with no butter on it!
