Songs

Songs are a great way to practice English listening skills. You can choose any song, listen to it several times (while you work, clean the house, or drive), then sit down and write out the words. Use the internet to look up the lyrics and check what you heard. Now play the song again while reading the words. Always sing along with the song, too – this helps your speaking and pronunciation skills!

You can Google a song name or use these sites to find your favorite song:
