Are you looking for more authentic listening for your English students? Web of Stories began as an archive of life stories told by some of the great scientists of our time. As the number of stories grew, it became obvious that some were on related topics and a web was slowly being created of connected stories. After a while famous people outside the field of science were also invited to tell their life stories.
You can listen to the stories of famous people in the Lives section. You can also browse by topic in the Channels section. Finally, you and your students can tell your own stories and add them to the website.
