Hi D-Life

I think that these recordings would be very tough for elementary students I have taught. However, with the transcript and support activities, I believe they could manage most of the activities and get a lot of new language. 

I believe that intermediate students will still benefit a lot from listening, improving listening skills rather than their knowledge of language.

One of the nice things about online materials is it puts the learner in control. You can choose how many times you want to listen. You can choose how much of the support materials you want to use. This way, the materials can meet the needs of learners at different levels.

Thanks
