Dictations

Dictations

To complement the popular e-lessons series, we also offer dictionary-focused dictation exercises, written by authors Philip Kerr (Straightforward) and  Lindsay Clandfield (Straightforward, Global). Please click to download Philip's tips for using dictation in class.

Inspired by the starred red words in the Macmillan English Dictionary, these exercises look at common learner problems and use real-life examples to help illustrate key points. Students are also exposed to a wide range of accents.
