Here are links to sites that allow you to download podcasts to listen to on your computer or MP3 player. Most of these sites let you download the podcasts free of charge, but will ask you to become a member if you want to use the worksheets or transcript. Personally, I think listening to the different podcasts (again and again!) is sufficient practice, but if you feel you need extra help with your listening comprehension it might be an option.

Elementary podcasts Let's start with some easy stuff. Totally free too!
