ELLLO stands for English Language Listening Lab Online. This web site is a great place for students of English to practice listening skills. There are more than 1000 activities archived on the site, and a variety of activities updated every Monday. Here are some of the site's features:

Interviews: Hear English-speakers talk about their jobs, families, lives, hobbies, etc. There is a good variety of English spoken, so students can hear many different types of English.

Newscasts: Short news stories with accompanying comprehension questions. Funny, motivational, debatable - there is something for everyone in these mini news stories!

Surveys (Mixers): Hear 6 people answer the same question. Again, a variety of English is presented: Australian, American, British, Swedish, etc.

Songs: Read the lyrics as you sing! Lyrics displayed on the monitor karaoke-style.

FOR BEGINNERS!!! Listening games: Listen to a short clip and find the matching picture.

This web site is very interactive, and fun for students and teachers alike. Visit every Monday and improve your listening skills!
