English listening practice

Do you have have problems understanding some English speakers?

eViews is for people with good English but who may have problems understanding native English speakers, and could benefit from English listening exercises.

Sometimes it's because the other person has a strong accent or an accent you're not familiar with.

Or somethimes because you have studied English as a Second Language (ESL) in your own country but haven't had much contact with native English speakers.

Typically eViews is for someone at the level of the Cambridge First Certificate and looking for idiomatic expressions (English listening and comprehension practice).

Do you want to learn English online?

eViews has been designed for students of English as a Second Language (ESL) to hear authentic English speakers in "natural" conversations. Our interviews are recorded at a natural speed, are not scripted, and are spoken by "real" people, not actors.

Students are able to practice hearing and understanding native English speakers in a wide range of accents; English, American, Canadian, Australian, New Zealand, etc.

You can then complete a comprehension exercise and compare your answers with the material prepared by a professional ESL teacher. A full transcription of the interview is included for further practice and understanding.

Teachers will get a prepared lesson plan with each of our recorded interviews. Our lesson plans are designed by an ESL teacher with over 18 years teaching experience and are tailored to fit a one hour lesson.

Students get:

  • the interview (audio)
  • comprehension questions (text)
  • comprehension answers (text)
  • a full transcription of the interview (text)

ESL teachers get:

  • the above
  • a suggested lesson plan based on this material (text)

We offer over 50 interviews in our library with a wide range of accents and subject material, and add new material every few weeks.

Loads of English listening activities, each exercise comes with a glossary of terms, comprehension exercise and transcription, plus teachers receive a prepared lesson plan.

The current exercise shows you how the material is prepared. The audio material is in MP3 format and the printed material is in PDF.
