    “Hello, I’m Bob Jenkins. I’m 34 years old and I come from York in the north of England. My father is an engineer and my mother is a journalist. She works for a local newspaper. I’ve got one sister, she’s older than me. Her name’s Ann. She’s married and she’s got two small children. She’s a teacher but she isn’t working at the moment. I’m a taxi driver at Heathrow airport. I take tourists all over the south east of England. I like my job very much and I often meet some very interesting people.”

      1. Excellent! That’s a good start. I must try to add some more dictations here. However, if you look in the column on the left here there is a section called “Website Guide” and there you will find a link (Dictation Practice) to lots of dictations if you are interested. Thanks also for your comment in the Guestbook!
