Audio books have become increasingly popular in recent years, as there are many benefits to listening to literature. Storynory can be a good resource to develop listening and reading skills. In case of ESL students, they will also benefit from hearing clear pronunciation and native speech patterns.
Storynory is a free website with a collection of stories sorted in categories such as fairytales, educational stories, junior stories, myths and world stories, classic audio books, and music and poems. It was founded in 1995 by Hugh Fraser and Matthew Lynn.
All their stories come with an HTML5 audio player that should work on most devices in use today. Users can read the text and/ or listen to the story.
