Harry Potter Audiobooks
Audiobooks are a great way to learn English. So if you're a Harry Potter fan this is an excellent combination. And not only will you have the thrill of a great story, but the audiobooks are read by actors who read the text but also give a different voice to each of the different characters. And the voices are great!This really gives the audiobook a lot of life in comparison to other audio books that are simply a person reading a text.
Harry Potter audiobooks come in both American and British versions. The British version is read by Stephen Fry and the American version by Jim Dale.
This is not a simplified version of the text so, if you're at an intermediate level, it will probably give you some trouble. But keep on listening! If you persevere, you should be able to follow the basic story.
Where to get: Visit your local English book shop or online. At Audio Editions, for example, where you can also listen to some audio samples
Levels: Intermediate, Advanced
