Fables and stories podcasts

English Club has a more than interesting collection of podcasts featuring fables, stories, the Chinese Zodiac, the signs of the Zodiac.

The podcasts are on the short side and they can be downloaded. They come complete with their transcript.

Self-study activity:
There are several ways you can work with this material:
  • You can select a podcast and check how much you have understood by reading/listening to the transcript later on.
  • You can shadow-read a story: Read the transcript while you listen to it, so that you can imitate the rhythm and pronunciation.
  • You can develop your oral skill by listening to a story and trying to retell it in your own words later on.
  • You can discuss the moral of the story with your conversation group.
