This is America. Text and MP3 Files

This is America
Text & MP3 Files

There are 240 fifteen-minute programs.  That is about 60 hours of listening.
And reading.

Here's what I like about this resource:
  1. Great variety of topics about life in the USA.
  2. The English is very easy to understand (VOA's Special English).
  3. You can easily download the mp3 and take it with you.
  4. The transcript shows you exactly what is being said so you know how the words are spelled.
  5. Double-click on the words you don't know and a definition pops up. 
  6. The programs are made by Voice of America radio professionals.
  7. The programs are only 15 minutes long.
  8. You can learn a lot about this interesting country!
