Hi there,

Is there anybody around with an interest in English audiobooks? I have quite a lot to give away for free. the topics are mainly crime fiction (Ian Rankin, Peter May,…), comedy (Stephen Fry, Graham Norton,…), educational (Shakespeare Appreciated) and documentary (biographies of Pete Townshend, David Attenborough and others). So, if anything chimes with your tastes just give me a shout, will ye?

All the best and a nice day to all of you,

Guido

    Hi Pegomas, on which language level are the audiobooks?

    Hi, These are not learner’s books so it’s not all that easy to pin a difficulty Level to them. I would guess any fluent speaker should understand them. However, there are maybe some audiobooks you need to get the hang of to; for instance the Rebus’ recordings are in a slight Scottish accent, and David Attenborough mumbles a wee bit, whereas the Shakespeare plays are in a …aye…old and quite stilted English. But that’s the fun of it, isn’t it? But once your ears have adapted to the wee peculiarities there should be no problem with understanding what’s being said. Well, I hope that has made it a bit clearer.

    Cheers, G

    Hi, I see. I have just taken the CAE and waiting for the result. Could you choose 2-3 audiobooks for me which are not si difficult? Why can we meet? I am from Dortmund and working in Essen. Cheers Miroslaw
