This blog finally has audio. I found a very easy way to create audio files of all my blog posts.. Im using a site called Talkr.

So now students can practice listening by clicking on the audio link at the bottom of each post. The voice is a computer voice, so there may not be much emotion. But the pronunciation is clear.

I suggest the following system: print a post, read it a couple of times, look up any unknown words which seem important to understanding, then listen to the post a few times.

If you feel your listening skills are low, first try listening and reading at the same time. If your skills are higher, just listen, without reading.

Good luck!
