English Listening Practice with Stories You Wrote

Our free writing course is a 30 day email course. You get a fun topic sent to you every day. If you challenge yourself to spend a few minutes writing every day, you will have focused a lot on your English writing in one month.

Below are some of the great stories and compositions that have been submitted.

If you haven’t gone through our course, I encourage you to do that. But even if you haven’t, you can get some listening practice with very short, practical English.

Please take a second to share this on Facebook, Twitter, or anywhere else!
