To be able to speak well you need to be able to listen, and this ESL houses listening page will help you get experience of listening to the pronunciation of houses vocabulary.
This page has various listening activities in which you need to listen to recordings of a native English speaker and answer questions or write something. If you need to check the correct pronunciation for any housing vocabulary words you can listen to the spoken vocabulary list on the ESL houses vocabulary page. Then when you have listened to the spoken vocabulary and all the material on this page you will be much more prepared to listen to a real person when you meet them or have to speak to them.
The four exercise for you to do are as follows:
