Some Sites for English Listening Practice

This weekend, “get a grip” on your English!
Over the last week or so I’ve come across a few sites that I thought would be helpful for my readers learning English. One is TOEIC-related, and the other two are more about current news.
The first, English-Test.net, has some good practice exercises and tests to prepare for the TOEIC or other similar, standardized tests, like the TOEFL. It seems to have a lot of information, so it’s probably good to spend some time exploring it.
Next, I also came across the PBS site called NOW. PBS is the public broadcasting network in the US, and this site has longer reports and videos about current events (for example, here’s one about natural gas drilling in the USA). 
Finally, here’s another one from the VOA (Voice of America), which has podcasts that you can listen to. Some of them even have scripts that you can read while you listen, like this report about exercising.
So, check them out, and if you have any other links you’ve found lately, I’d love to hear from you in the comments section! Thanks for reading, and have a great weekend!
