TED video transcripts and vocabulary lists that you can study with on your own!

Material

Other - Transcripts and vocabulary lists for TED videos

Description  

Are you looking for a way to improve your listening skills outside of lessons?

I have written a series of transcripts for TED videos that you can use to improve your listening skills and broaden your vocabulary.

Each transcript comes with a vocabulary list explaining the more challening vocabulary in the video.  

Recommended study method:
1. Watch the video a few times to see how much you can understand on your own
2. Read the transcript
3. Use the vocabulary list or a dictionary to look up the meanings of any words you don't know
4. Watch the video a few more times while reading along with the transcript
5. Watch the video again without using the transcript 
6. Repeat as many times as you need to until you can completely understand the video without the transcript!

I currently have transcripts available for the following videos (please watch them before buying a transcript to check that they are the appropriate level for you):

** Buying one lesson = buying one transcript **

This is not a Skype lesson. When you buy a lesson, please let me know which transcript you would like, and I will send it to you ^_^

These resources are fantastic for intermediate students who are looking to improve their listening skills and widen their vocabulary through self-study.

Please contact me if you have any questions!
