Episode Notes

A new weekly dictation to help learners of the English language to improve their listening comprehension.

How to use:

  1. Don’t look at the transcript (text) below.
  2. Listen to the podcast (the dictation is repeated twice) and try to write everything you hear down.
  3. Check your text with the text of the dictation. If any word is different, it is probably a listening comprehension mistake. Try to listen again to the word and repeat the pronunciation a few times. If you don’t understand the word when you read it; it is probably new vocabulary.
  4. Listen to the dictation again. You should understand some of the words that you didn’t understand before.

Transcript:

A large number of people are now working at home. Video meetings have become a lot more common. This week, Lizet, a political director at her company made a big mistake during a meeting, when she accidently turned herself into a potato on screen. She clicked a video effect setting that made her look like a potato with a mouth and eyes. However, she couldn’t find the setting to turn it off. She had to continue with the meeting appearing as a potato on screen. Her employees found it hilarious. An employee took a screenshot and shared it on social media. It quickly went viral, and over 500,000 people liked the post
