Ello listening site. Listen, take the quiz and read the script (if needed)

Elllo stands for English Lesson Listening Library. It  is a short video site or slide share site  where students can listen to  and view short videos/presentations. There is a script for the texts you hear and the recordings are pretty clear. When you finish listening you can just do the listening quiz.

LEVEL:  Lower intermediate or upper 

Warning:  It might be difficult to find the audios  you like as the web is a bit chaotic and you seem to need either the number of the video or the name of the  series to which it belongs. 

This is the link to the site: HERE

See the links to the videos I have chosen  for you below but feel free to browse around

These are some of the examples you may like:


a. Trip to Cambodia:  Julia tells us about a memorable trip in Cambodia to raise money for a charity. .It includes the audio and a slide presentation of her trip as well as the script, vocabulary and quiz. There are 4 presentation on the same subject.

b. Take a peek at the section  "Talking Points"

My suggestion:
  • TAKE THE QUIZ
  • LISTEN 
  • TAKE THE QUIZ AGAIN
  • CHECK THE SCRIPT IF YOU FEEL YOU NEED TO
These are the Talking points I liked: 

b.1. American cities  HERE

b.2. Best movies ever HERE

b.3. Different jobs the speaker (Todd)  has had HERE

Thanks to my colleagues at the Training British Council Course 2013 for recommending this site.
