(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.
Vending machines selling sausages have become very popular in Germany. The machines are ‘booming’ outside German cities where shops don’t stay open for long house. Hungry Germans who are hungry in the middle of the night can buy local sausages and also potato salad – so customers can buy all they need for a traditional German meal.
