This page has some resources to help with your listening.
you can start by doing any
of the quizzes at the “Easy” level. If you cannot get most of
the questions correct then do another two exercises at this level. If you
find that you can get most of the questions correct at the “Easy”
level, move on to do an exercise at the “Medium” Level. Similarly,
if you cannot get most of the questions correct then do another two exercises
at this level. If you find that you can get most of the questions correct
at the “Medium” level, move on to do two exercises at the “Difficult”
Level. (N.B. This is content from outside actionenglish.com). The
page will open in a new window.
After this go to a listening quiz on actionenglish.com (click here) and find out the secret word! (The video content is on a site outside of actionenglish.com).
There is a second (more difficult) quiz here. (The audio interview is on a site outside of actionenglish.com).
A quiz I'm quite proud of is "The Brain and Learning" It's a multiple choice and short answer quiz based on the first half (fifteen minutes) of an interview with an expert about recent research on the brain and how this research might affect educational practice (again the interview is on a site outside of actionenglish.com).
Other possibly useful resources from outside actionenglish.com (listed in roughly the order I think you should use them in) are:
(All these quizzes open in new pages.)
(This is a good selection of short interviews with native speakers complete with multiple choice exercises and transcripts. The four which are most closely related to educational topics are listed below.)
(There are a number of sample listening exercises at three levels on this site. They have questions and transcripts. Note that his site asks you to pay for access beyond the samples.)
(There are a couple of listening exercises on conversations concerning movies on this site. Both have multiple choice exercises.)
(This is a story about a Japanese visiting Canada. There are a variety of listening exercises and the transcripts have interactive definitions. The exercises are at quite a low level.)
(This site has some exercises centering around discrimination between different, easily confused phonemes. A "micro" listening skill. Try it for a change when your 're bored with doing other more useful things!)
(Again a "micro" listening skills site. Listen to the individual sentences and see if you can write exactly what you hear. Don't get to worried if you find this difficult.)
Three pages of links to other listening exercises (opening in new pages) are at:
Please note I have not tried all of these quizzes, although I have looked through most of them to pick out ones that I think would be the most useful to you, and included them in the recommendations above.
