MP3s/Podcasts for beginners?

MichaelK

Hi again, Everybody.

Thank you for your responses to my question about using MP3s/podcasts in the ESL classroom. Your suggestions were very helpful!

Now I'm wondering if it's possible to use the same kind of material with a class of beginners. How can beginners benefit from lessons with MP3s/podcasts? Are there any out there that are appropriate to that level?

Thanks for your help!

I find using a variety of different resources keeps things interesting for the students and you ! It is also of great benefit for the to hear as much English as possible. It is also great to hear a variety of different accents. I have been producing some great videos please feel free to use any that you would like. Please visit http://skype-englishschool.com/blog/annas-english-lesson-day-20 This is on word stress. I find that once a student cracks the music of English it really helps them!

very nice lesson, Anna. I also find that when students start to understand word stress (and later sentence stress) their pronunciation and confidence improve greatly. 

 

I plan to check out the rest of your videos.
