3) Emphasis

They are generally used to stress the uniqueness of an event and begin with a negative.

Podcasts

Hey, you! How are you doing? 🙂

You have probably heard about Podcasts at least once in your life (mainly if you have been my student 😀 ). But what do they mean, exactly?

Podcasts are not just listening activities for EAL students to improve their conversation skills (click here to watch a really nice lesson about it). They provide valuable English language tips and improved learning opportunities for those who learn and teach English at all levels.

You know, I ❤ recommending them to all my students because of their indescribably great learning power. Besides, the episodes are generally very short (3-4 minutes), which is perfect for those who do not have much time or desire to listen to an hour episode. They are also perfect for short trips in the car! They are usually spoken very clearly in order to help you with your listening.

Very important tip: do not panic! 🙂 The list is big and you may take some time to check link by link. Don’t worry! 😉

So let’s start our list of recommended sites. Continue reading
