(A bit of a difficult English dictation today!)
A 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 in Poland, called the police when she saw a bizarre animal in a tree outside her flat. The woman didn’t know what animal it was, but thought it might be an iguana. When the officers arrived they were able to get the mystery animal down. The animal in question turned out to be a croissant. A neighbour thinks that the croissant was thrown out of a window as food for birds, but ended up getting stuck in the tree. The officers did not mention what happened to the croissant after it was rescued from the tree.
