TED Talks in Turkish | Translations | TED.com

TED Talks in Turkish | Translations | TED.com | ESL Listening & Communication Resources | Scoop.it
TED Open Translation Project brings TEDTalks beyond the English-speaking world by offering subtitles, interactive transcripts and the ability for any talk to be translated by volunteers worldwide.
Rebecca Soble's insight:

For my Turkish ESL students, these videos have the original video in English with Turkish subtitles.  It may be useful for practicing your listening skills especially if you listen once with the subtitles so that you can fully understand the topic and pick up vocabulary, and then listen again without the subtitles to support what you heard the first time.  There are lots of different topics.

BBC Learning English | Pronunciation Tips

Learn about and improve your spoken English with free pronunciation downloads. There are videos, audio examples, quizzes and other activities to help you study.
Rebecca Soble's insight:

A useful site for working on specific issues with pronunciation, an essential component of communication.  The page http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/learningenglish/grammar/pron/sounds/chart.shtml is especially useful for identifying the sounds and determining which ones you want to practice.  First read out loud 10 minutes per day, and record your voice.  Listening to yourself to identify which sounds are unclear, then find those sounds in the chart and practice them.  Good luck, have fun!
