All the material contained in the worksheets comes from the listening section of the Excellent ESL 4U website. It has been represented so that it is easier and simpler for people who do not want to use the Internet while doing the tasks. If this is you, then you can download the ESL listening worksheets.
Each worksheet has four listening exercises. These are listening to a group of words and identifying to correct order from options, listening to a definition of a word and finding the correct word, a listening comprehension where you have to listen to a spoken passage and then answer questions and finally a dictation passage.
For all the activities you will need to listen to a recording. Each exercise in the work sheet has a link to a Soundcloud track that you will need to listen to. You can either click the link within each pdf or copy the link into your web-browser to get to the recording.
