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.
(The dictations starts at 34 seconds, if you don’t need the instructions)
Are you married? Did you spend a lot of money on food for your guests? One couple didn’t! Recently, on Facebook, a photo of the food at a wedding has gone viral. The pictures were taken by a bridesmaid. In the photo she criticizes the food. All they had on the plate were a packet of crisps, half a croissant, two cocktail sticks with tiny bits of cheese and fruit, as well as a small pot containing cucumber a carrot and baby tomatoes. Other people said that is exactly what they gave their babies to eat for lunch!
