Choose a something you would like to listen to. Some examples include:

      • Voice of America (www.voanews.com/specialenglish)
      • Ted Talks (www.ted.com/talks)
      • National Public Radio (www.npr.com, 89.7 FM, 90.7 FM)
  • Decide if you will just listen and repeat or if you will use the transcript.
  • Make sure your audio is set up (headphones, microphone, and volume).
  • If you are going to record, use the Accessory ‘Sound Recorder’ on a pc computer. (See Kristi for help with this.)
  • When you are ready, press ‘Record’ and then begin your listening. Record yourself repeating what the speaker says immediately after they say it. Pause your listening at any time.
  • Repeat & have fun!
