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.
A woman’s trip to a spa ended in embarrassment when she found herself naked in the street. She had arranged to meet her boyfriend in the sauna. The sauna rules states that everyone has to be naked. Unfortunately, when she arrived, she went through the wrong door! She accidentally went through the fire escape door. She only had a tiny towel. She couldn’t get back in! She banged the door and yelled. No one answered. Eventually, she had to go onto the street. She walked around the building to the front door. She entered through the reception. The reception was full of people. At first, the receptionist asked her for her ID, but eventually let her in. She found her boyfriend in the cafe. However, he was grumpy because he had been waiting an hour.
