What Is a "Spoken" Lesson?



I don't love the Internet, though my wife thinks I spend too much time at our computer. And I don't think that the Internet will solve all of our problems.

When you're trying to learn or practice your English, however, it's easy to see the possibilities this offers.

Because the function of Bite Sized English is to help you with your English, I want to offer as much listening exercise as possible. Not all, but most of the lessons I make here will be available as "spoken" lessons.

That means you'll be able to press the "play" button in your web browser to hear the text of the lesson spoken aloud. How you decide to use the spoken lessons is up to you. I'll be posting some suggestions in the How To Learn English series that began today.

You can listen while reading, to hear the pronunciation of new vocabulary. Or you can listen before reading, to practice listening. Another option is to speak along with the audio, to train the 'melody' of your English.

This lesson was written by Toby, an American English teacher that lives in Germany. Toby is the creator of Bite Sized English.
