I don’t know the name of the person who has made English Talk Station, but it’s great material if you want to practice pronunciation, listening skills and talking. Click the link below and you can download pdf:s with text + mp3-files for listening. All free! Here are some interesting thoughts on how to learn a new language:
1. Listen. Listen to English talks and conversations as much as possible. Listen to radio and TV programs. Listen to native speakers. Listen to audio courses. You need to listen a lot, really a lot – many, many hours every day. Listen to audio programs even while you are cooking or driving.
2. Speak. You receive the language by listening, and you produce the language by speaking. You become a good speaker only if you speak a lot. You can speak with your friends and family. Or you can even speak with yourself. Have a conversation with yourself. Speak on different topics.
Important: When you’re listening to the audio, pause it now and then, and repeat what the speakers are saying. You can even have a conversation with the speakers on the audio!
3. Read. Read anything you like – novels, comic books, magazines, newspapers, brochures. Reading will develop your vocabulary and sharpen your thinking. It will make you an intelligent speaker.
4. Write. Writing is the last skill. Yet it is important. It helps you to remember things better because it involves muscle memory. Try to write the things you listen on the audio. You can also write short notes, poems, letters and articles. Of course, it will be difficult to write anything fluently at first. But remember, practice makes perfect.
