ENGLISH LANGUAGE LEARNING- reading and listening books/songs

TABG_logoBITS is a great and useful page created by Skip Reske. As he says, the only purpose of this site is to help students improve their listening and reading comprehension of the English language.
‘BITS English Language Learning’ is completely non-profit and contains no advertising.

Links for downloading items are not available and will not be provided.

You can find out a great “read and listen collection” that is going to help you whether you are a teacher or a student with a great variety of resources: intermediate level, advanced level, audiobooks, shorts stories and SONGS.
Once you click in your election another bunch of different stories will appear
I invite you to go through the page and discover the great range of stories. Another important thing is that, in many of them, you can choose the podcast in two listening speeds: ” faster listening speed” and ” shorter listening speed”.
Another interesting parts are:
English Idioms, Sayings & Slang

Reading Actvities and Test Preparation for the PET

Practice Using Articles’a’ – ‘an’ – ‘the’
Radio Audio Dramas Listen & Read Archive
