Let's improve your listening skills in English with Martin Luther King, Jr.'s Speeches!
Martin Luther King, Jr.'s Speech, an English learning application, is used as an objective for better listening skills in English. We developed a new type of English learning application based on what we want as non-English natives who live in the US. We hope that our new English learning method will help everyone who seriously wants to improve listening capability for doing business in English, studying abroad or living in English speaking countries.
Martin Luther King, Jr.'s Speech is very simple and useful; it has about 5 minutes English speeches with English subtitles. Each speech is divided into short sections, and you can play and pause by section with listening and reading. This application is great for learning for those people who can read English, but aren't capable of listening to it correctly because you can check to see if you heard everything right by checking the subtitles.
