38: S1E38 – Quick Dictations – The Giant Potato

Chuckle English Quick Dictations Podcast

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:

She shared it on Twitter and it quickly went viral.
