Helping English Learners Find Listening Materials

Practice

EnglishClub recently received a question from an English learner about finding listening materials. We wrote back to this learner, but thought we’d expand a bit on our blog in case any of you have the same question.

Q: Where can I find audio practice in American English on EnglishClub?

A: You may have noticed thatEnglishClub is written in British English.Our About page has the following explanation:

Students can practice free listening exercises in English conversations. They can listen and answer the questions about the conversation. Teachers can use practice free listening exercises in English with their students in class or school. Elementary Level practice free Listening exercises in English. Nov 20, 2017 Speak with Others. I’m sure you know that speaking will help your English speaking skills. But having conversations is a great way to get more listening practice. In fact, I think that speaking with others is the best listening practice you can get.

EnglishClub comes to you from England. It is written mainly in British English. But we have pages about other varieties of English such as American or Canadian. Don’t be surprised if you see a word that you think is wrongly spelled! Some words are spelled differently in British English and American English. “Colour”, for example, is British English. In American English it is “color”. We try to make this clear when it is important.

While EnglishClub uses mainly British spelling and usage, many of our audio materials are in North American English. My name is Tara and I have been contributing audio materials to EnglishClub for many years. As a Canadian, my English dialect (pronunciation, vocabulary, and usage) is much closer to that of my nearby American neighbours than my friends in England. However, people throughout North America have different accents and expressions. When it comes to speaking English, it’s not really about being Canadian or American. In North America, the region (state or province) a person grows up in has much more to do with how they speak than the nationality.

Listening is an important part of communication. If you do not understand what the other person is saying, then you will not know how to respond. This section was created to give students daily practice on listening. In this English listening section, students can constantly listen to the audio files provided here. Are you an upper intermediate (CEFR level B2) learner of English? This section offers listening practice to help you understand extended, standard speech about familiar topics that may contain complex ideas. Situations include broadcasts, reviews, presentations and lectures.

If you want to practise listening to English, you should try listening to many different accents, including speakers from a wide variety of places in Europe, Canada, the US, Australia, and New Zealand. I have lived in Quebec, British Columbia, and Ontario. While some people call this “Canadian English”, others refer to it as “North American”.
