Lit2Go is a free online collection of stories and poems in Mp3 (audiobook) format. An abstract, citation, playing time, and word count are given for each of the passages. Many of the passages also have a related reading strategy identified. Each reading passage can also be downloaded as a PDF and printed for use as a read-along or as supplemental reading material for your classroom.

Audio and text, out of copyright titles (Huckleberry Finn and the Wizard of Oz ...)

Shona Whyte:

A handy link to over 20 podcasts for EFL/ESL learners created by the British Council.  Some are specifically oriented to particular types of learners (e.g., business), others have a specific language focus (e.g., prepositions).  Good for regular listening practice, particularly on the move.

If you think that iPods are used just for listening to music, you obviously haven't been keeping up with the latest technology. To find out about the many different ways you can transform your iPod into a learning device, check out our list below.

 

Shona Whyte:

A very comprehensive range of downloads and resource sites for the iPod in learning: study guides, learning support, applications and downloads, podcasts and iTunesU and miscellaneous links and advice.  Mostly free, all indubitably educational.
