An EnglishClub Site of the Month (August 2012)
ESLPod is full of English listening materials that are free for English learners and teachers. Two American professors who specialize in ESL run the site and record the podcasts. The dialogues in the podcasts use everyday English at a pace that is quite a bit slower than natural. The language and scenarios are explained in easy English following each dialogue. Topics range from travel and business to small talk and relationships. Serious learners who want more than listening practice can subscribe to ESLPod for a monthly fee. Subscribers receive 8-10 page learning guides for each episode. Each guide includes a glossary with sample sentences, comprehension questions, cultural notes, and a transcript.
