On this ESL shopping listening page there are examples of spoken English using shopping vocabulary so that you can listen to the words being used in naturally spoken passages.
You will need to be able to have conversations in English about shopping if you ever go to an English speaking country, and this page will help you get used to listening to the shopping vocabulary. The ESL shopping vocabulary page has a list of useful vocabulary, which has also been spoken by a native speaker and recorded so you can listen to the pronunciation. If you need to, go to the vocabulary page and listen to the spoken vocabulary list first, before doing the following shopping listening exercises.
This page has the following exercises for you to do:
The first ESL shopping listening exercise is one where you need to listen to some groups of words that have been recorded and then decide which option (A-D) in each question has them listed in the same order. Listen to the recording and then select which option is correct in each of the 5 questions. When you have finished click the get score button to see how well you did.
In this exercise you need to listen to the recording of five definitions of words. Then choose the option (A-D) in each question that has the word with the same meaning as the definition.
This ESL shopping listening exercise has a recording of a passage about shopping that you need to listen to and then 5 questions for you to answer. You should listen to the passage first, then look at and read the questions before listening to the passage again and answering the questions. Click the get score button when you have finished to see how well you did.
At the end of this page there is a link for you to click that will show you the text of the passage so you can check your understanding of it.
This exercise is a dictation activity. You need to listen to the following recording of the spoken passage and write it down. The passage has been read two times in the recording. The first is at a slow reading speed, and the second has pauses after every few words and the punctuation has been spoken as well. Listen to the recording several times if you need to.
Again there is a link at the end of the page to click that will show the passage so you can check your answer with the original.
