Enhance Your Learning with ESL Podcast!

ESL Podcast logo

For an adult learner who needs some English listening practice and has Internet access, we highly recommend eslpod.com.  Learners can go to the site and choose a podcast that is of interest to them. They can listen to it slowly, listen to an explanation of it, and/or listen to it quickly; at the same time they can read the transcript if they'd like. The service is free, but interested students can pay for a basic or premium membership if they would like to receive the "Learning Guides."

The library has online access to Consumer Reports, a magazine that specializes in product testing and comparisons to help buyers make the most of their money. In order to search the magazine's contents, first go to the library's home page and do a title search for 'Consumer Reports Online', then click on the top result by the same name.
