Reading and listening

A lot of children’s books also have an audio version. You can either read the story first and then listen, or listen first and then read the book. Below you can find a list with examples of audio books.

Read – listen – read and listen

  1. Read the story and look up important words and phrases you don’t understand, but not too many.
  2. Listen to the story with the book closed.
  3. Read the story while listening.
    Optionally read the story again while listening and repeat the sentences out loud.
