Repeat After Us - Online Language Lab

Repeat After Us is an online library of copyright-free English texts and audio recordings. The purpose of Repeat After Us is to provide ESL students with a place to read and hear proper pronunciations of English words. The texts on Repeat After Us are arranged into eight genre categories including children's stories, prose fiction, and prose non-fiction. Recordings can be listened to online and or downloaded from Repeat After Us. All of the recordings match the texts. Texts range in length from one paragraph to multiple pages.

Thanks to Kyle Pace for Tweeting the link to Repeat After Us.

Applications for Education
Repeat After Us could be helpful for students learning to read and pronounce English words and phrases. Students could read the texts to themselves before listening to the recordings to check their pronunciations.
