After school, Maria showed her friends around her house. They checked all the windows and doors, but everything seemed normal.

Sophie: "Maybe it was just your imagination. You were home alone and scared because of the storm."

Just then, they heard the sound again. It was coming from the attic.

Li: "Let's check up there."

Maria: "No way! That's too scary."

Sophie: "I'll go up. You guys wait here."

Sophie climbed up the ladder to the attic. After a few minutes, she came back down, holding a small radio.

Maria: "But who turned it on? No one goes up there..."

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.
