    You might want to look at exercises at http://www.esl-lab.com/ and http://www.englishlistening.com/
    The second one requires a membership, but I have used their free "samples" for listening practice, since the text is also available.

    REEM,
    The audio sources files off these web sites are protected, I believe, against downloading.
    I have taped some of the shorter excerpts using an inexpensive tape recorder. Granted, the quality left something to be desired, depending on your computer's sound system. I have also made many of my own tapes from readings, and enlisted friends to read short scripts (such as messages left on answering machines) so that students heard voices other than my own.
    sjn
