Diktee (Dictation)

The exercises:

• Select a diktee from the list Diktee Sessies.
• Be ready to write on paper, or type (e.g. any word processing program like Notepad). Listen closely to the recording and write down what you hear.
• Go on to the Vergelyk (compare) page and compare what you wrote with the official text.

Why diktee?

You will find the exercise helps you to see how close you match the expected experience. Areas that will improve will be your understanding of pronunciation and spelling and the meaning of words and sentences. Sometimes one word will be a blob of sound, but as you get the rest of the sentence, the blob dissolves and you know what it is.

Diktee is a great listening execise.
