Website Update January 2024

Happy New Year, Everyone!

Realizing that everyone experiences highs and lows throughout the year, I wish you all the best in your life’s journey in 2024. May you find meaning in every challenge that you encounter along the way. Relish in your success and seek out others who need physical and emotional support to achieve their own.

I am in the 26th year of developing my main Website, Randall’s ESL Cyber Listening Lab (, and I never imagined that I would still be developing it in new directions.

Here are some of my plans in 2024:

  1. Engaging Video Interviews-

Continue creating lessons involving critical thinking and discussion by interviewing native speakers in natural, spontaneous conversations. Such lessons for intermediate to advanced learners include pre-listening learning tasks, key vocabulary, a video, comprehension questions, and post-listening discussion topics.


  1. Innovative Content Development with AI Technologies –

Develop and expand upon my Life Stories section of the Website that makes use of different AI technologies, including an advanced AI voice generator, to create new accents and voices for my listening content. Using such technologies can expand on language-learning content that focuses on critical thinking, a needed skill in today’s world.


  1. Facebook Live Broadcasts –

Record new live broadcasts with educators and students from around the world on topics ranging from language learning to tips on understanding other cultures. Contact me if you are interested in participating in such an event.


Here are other resources on my Website that you might find useful:

1. Watch my video tutorials on how to use my Website more effectively. Often, people tell me, “Oh, I didn’t know that I could do that on your site!”

2. Download and share my instructional handouts in PDF format that can help inform others about the site’s content. These are very helpful in spreading the word on how to learn English online. Post them to your social media feeds if you like.

3. Visit the different sections of my site for audio and video listening practice. Some of these areas include:

4. Try over 300 vocabulary quizzes that recycle the topics and vocabulary from my listening activities.

5. Watch over 50 broadcast episodes with teachers and students worldwide, where we discuss language and culture. Each episode contains learning activities to extend your learning.

6. Enjoy language games that engage learners in fun ways.

7. Watch my video lessons on useful English idioms.

8. You can also visit my other online channels for learning content and information:
