TWO SITES TO PRACTISE ORAL ENGLISH

These are two websites that foster practice of oral skills:

Yappr. Videos sorted out according to their level of difficulty (easy, medium, hard) or genre (commercials, music, nature...) The recordings are accompanied by thier scripts in English and, sometimes, Spanish.

Pronunciar inglés. A blog devoted to phonetics in order to help readers improve their pronunciation.

  2. Wonderful! I´ve listened to a couple of interviews subtitled and it´s really useful and fun.

    A very good one to Sting when they were THE POLICE in Holland before singing "Roxanne" (Live 1979)

    "A not very well informed journalist: Is this your first performance in Holland?
    Sting: No, it isn´t. We´ve played in Holland more than anywhere else. Only nobody knew."

    I´m getting a good load of useful sites to add to my favourites!!

    Thank you!!
