NPR transcripts & audio
For my Level 5 students, I search for NPR transcripts online, and then I stream the audio in class and have them read along. I usually play a story twice. They say it really helps them when they hear English spoken naturally in a variety of voices and accents. It also gives me the chance to bring current events into the classroom for discussion. Does anyone else have fun strategies for exposing students to a variety of spoken English?
