This page about ESL party listening has a range of recordings of spoken party vocabulary for you to listen to so you can get practice at identifying the sound of the spoken words. This will mean that when you are having a conversation with someone speaking English you will be able to listen and understand the words much better.
In each of the tasks on this page the recording has been made by a native English speaker so you will be able to listen to the correct pronunciation. You should listen to the recordings a few times to really get used to how the words sound.
If you need help with any of the words used you can go to the ESL party vocabulary page. This page has a vocabulary list of party words with definitions and a recording of the words being spoken by a native speaker, so you can listen to the correct pronunciation before starting the exercises.
The four exercise on this page are as follows:
In the first ESL party listening activity you need to listen to the following recording and then decide which option (A-D) in each of the five questions has the words listed in the same order as in the recording. To see the correct answers you can use the get score button that follows the questions.
In the second ESL party listening task you need to listen to the recording of some definitions of party words and then decide which option (A-D) in each question has the word that matches the definition. Again you can use the get score button to see the answers.
For the third ESL party listening exercise you need to listen to the recoding of a passage being spoken by a native English speaker and then answer the questions that follow it. You can listen a few times if you need to. Then to see the correct answers and your score you can click the get score button.
At the end of the page there is a link that you can click that will show the full text of the passage so you can read it and see how much you understood when listening to it.
For the fourth ESL party listening activity you need to listen to the following recording of a passage and then write it down exactly as in the recoding. The recoding has the passage spoken twice. The first time is at a slow speaking speed and the second has pauses after every few words as well as the punctuation being spoken. You can listen as many times as you need to.
Again there is a link at the end of the page that you can use to see the full text of the passage so you can see how well you did in the dictation. If you got most of it correct you did well.
