Getting listening material for beginners can be quite difficult as most of the stuff out there can seem patronising especially for adult and teenage learners.
This is why I find YouTube a great source of material. the ‘How to be English’ series is really useful because they use quite simple language yet they play on English stereotypes which is a fun topic for a Friday lesson. The series has been so successful that one of the authors has even appeared on American TV.
All you have to do is type in ‘How to be English’ in the search box and you will find lots of material to use in class.
Remember to watch the videos before you use them to make sure they’re suitable!
