Reading and Listening Practice Online
Tazim's Weekly Feature


I have found a website I really like and one that will benefit students of all levels. It is easy to use and has many engaging activities. The reading passages are real life stories taken from television news items. To hear the full story, click on the "Listen" button located at the end of the story. The site is free and does not involve a lengthy registration or sign in process.

Pick a subject you like by selecting the topic or picture on the top frame of the homepage. You are then given the titles of stories in that section to choose from. You can read the story and click on the "Listen" button. Each story has most of the following activities:

-Learn New Words
-Spell a Word
-Matching Game
-Pick an Answer
-What Did You Learn?
-Write an Answer

I hope that you will benefit from using the information contained in this website. Please check it out by clicking on the link below.
