Toyo Gakuen University Freshman English 3 - Listening

This is my first blog entry for my Toyo Gakuen University students. Today I will introduce you to a great website. The website is called English Language Listening Laboratory on-line (ELLLO). ELLLO has hundreds of conversations that you can listen to. It has quizzes too.

Your homework is to listen to a conversation between Mr. Stout and a Canadian man called Simon. The topic is music. Listen to the conversation and answer these questions:
  1. What group from Vancouver do both Mr. Stout and Simon like?
  2. What group does Simon hate?
  3. What group does Mr. Stout hate?
Write your answers on a piece of A4 paper. You must submit your answers in class next Monday, the sixteenth of April.

You can listen to the conversation by clicking here. After that click "PLAY AUDIO". You can read the script by clicking here.

  5. Hi,
    you can subscribe to the ELLLO podcast. There is a link on the right side of this blog. Look for "ELLLO podcast" after "add to technorati favorites". Click the "plufd" button.
