Why are dictations one of the most effective ways to learn English?

Dictations are useful because listening to a dictation helps you find words that are difficult for you. After listening several times, those difficult words will become easy! Dictations are fun so you can repeat many times until you speak English perfectly!

Stage 1: Short Dictations - for beginning speakers of English or for review

When practicing these dictations, try to be as precise as possible. If you can only get four words, that's not bad - it's 80%! After you type in five words, click on the "Get Score" button to see your result, then click on the "See Answer" button to see the correct answer.

Have fun!
