Practice Audio: Lit and Q & A

This is a great combination lit and Q & A practice. The dialog (Q & A) part of the dictation is repeated twice in the audio. This practice is great for a moderate-lit workout, and a slow Q & A practice. The Q & A part is especially helpful for students who are also working on punctuation.

Here are some briefs and phrases from the video:

movie= MO*EF
champion= KHAON
season= S-N
cell phone= SLOEN or SFOEN
at the end of= TEFN
upset= SPET
football= FAOBL
baseball= BAIBL
restaurant= STRAUNT
especially= EP
United States= *US
negative= NEF
