    Listening Comprehension

    Hello,

    I teach business English in an international company. My clients are struggling with conference calls primarily with colleagues who are not native English speakers. I would like to find audio files, with scripts (preferably business topics) that I can download or buy, in order to help train them to understand English accents from India, Japan, Korea and France.

    Do you know of any websites or sources to help me?

    Thank you!

    Dunda

    Thank you for checking. It's a good site, but I'm looking for sound files of non-native English speakers who are more difficult to understand. The speakers on these files are quiet fluent. Should you come across anything else, I'd really appreciate it!

    Yes, I agree with you. It's great, specially if you go to Radio 4, where you will find a lot of podcasts concerning a large number of subjects.
