This is a fun activity I gleaned from my colleague at EOI Santa Brígida. Liz has written:
"It is a great tool which has articles from the news and you can listen to these articles as many times as you want while you write and the tool corrects you. You do not have to download anything but you have to register on the site. It is definitely worth exploring."
