LinkengPark: a nice site to practise Listening

Happy Monday to you all!  And no, I am not being ironic here, I sort of “hate” Mondays like everybody else in this planet  but today I am going to share a link with you that is going to help brighten your day, especially if you like English as much as I do, or if you happen not to like it so much, yes, let’s say it, I know there are some few people out there who don’t give a damn about learning this language but still…. they need to.  So.. for both, here we have Linkengpark, a great site to help you  improve your listening skills.

I learned about Linkengpark from the sweetest person on earth, Maria Artime who, when seeing its potential, didn’t hesitate to share it with me. I thank you María. It is really helpful! Linkengpark is a very nice site to practise Listening. It offers lots of different Podcasts (6 minute English, English at work, BBC how to, ESL stories…),  Audiobooks (Pride and Prejudice, Roald Dahl ….)and Videos  (English Vid, CNN Students News, Reuters…) with transcript  so you can also practise pronunciation.   You can choose your level, from Elementary to Advanced .

A great site which I’ll be visiting very often. I hope you do, too.

  1. Dear Christina,
    Thank you very much for sharing such wonderful material, great job!!
    I’d like to ask though about the site mentioned above, The LinkEngPark, I can’t seem to be able to log on to it, it doesn’t open the link. The same goes for the other link you shared, about downloading YouTube mp3 audio videos. Could you mbe help me out? Both these sites seem very interesting and helpful.
    Thank you in advance!
    Joanna

  2. Hi Joanna
    Unfortunately , sites come and go,and apparently this is one in the ‘go” Category. A real shame ‘cause it was very convenient to have all these links accesible from the same website. Anyway, if you look up some of them independently, you’ll see that most of them are still working.
    As regards the link to download from YouTube videos , I cannot see any reference to it in the post. Which one are you referring to?
