"Great Expectations" by Charles Dickens

Shona Whyte:

Loudlit.org has a collection of audio books, many retrieved from Project Gutenberg with audio via Librivox.org.

 

Here you can read along to the audio of Dicken's Great Expectations.

 

Unless you're a big fan of classic fiction, this is going to seem like hard work for language learning, but it's a good resource for general language input for upper intermediate and advanced learners (listen regularly for a short period).  You can also work on a short section using the shadow reading technique, where you keep the volume quite low and try to read aloud with the reader; this helps fluency and intonation.  Otherwise you can just listen and note words which are not pronounced as you expected, and look for patterns there.

 

Loudlit also has children's literature and poetry sections.

Wonderful for that long flight, or that commute in traffic
