Part 2: The Research Continues

Jack spent hours reading about Komodo dragons. He learned that they were the largest lizards in the world and could grow up to ten feet long. He also learned that they were carnivores and could eat animals as big as deer. Jack was amazed by how powerful and fascinating these creatures were. He started showing his mom all the cool facts he had learned, hoping to change her mind. But his mom still said no, and Jack was sad.

Here are some tips for getting the most out of this site.


Beginners: My strategy is to first read the translation while listening to the audio. Then I listen to each sentence individually. After that, I practice saying the vocabulary words out loud. Finally, I listen to the whole text again without reading the translation. I don't try to remember or understand everything. I just let the language sink in as I gain more exposure. (Videos about Comprehensible Input)


Intermediate Learners: To gain some speaking practice, try opening the translation in your native language and then translate it back into the language you're learning. If you encounter any difficulties, you can refer to the transcripts.


Although you may use these lessons for short, intense study sessions, it's important for intermediate learners to engage in extensive listening and reading with simple books, TV shows, and podcasts as soon as possible.
