Mp3 files and Pdf sheets
The Grammar Project has a facility for creating mp3 audio files for listening comprehension practice and pdf vocabulary sheets that can be printed and shared.
Sources
An mp3 or pdf file is created from a list of words and phrases. This can be a list you have created yourself by flagging words and phrases, or a list of all of the words and phrases in a tutorial, or the list can be one of the lists displayed on the home page.
From flagged words and phrases
Make sure that you have flagged at least one word or phrase. You can flag words and phrases by clicking the flag icon next to each item in the search results.
Open the Flags page and click either the "mp3" or "pdf" button in the Actions box.
From a tutorial
Make sure you have created a tutorial. Creating tutorials
Open the Tutorial page and click either the "mp3" or "pdf" button in the Actions box. If the button is disabled, it is because the tutorial does not contain any enough words and phrases to make an mp3 or pdf file.
From a list
Open one of the folders displayed on the home page.
Open one of the lists within that folder and click either the "mp3" or "pdf" button in the Actions box.
Options and Files
In the Control box are options for determining the type of file you create.
Source: Shows where this list of words and phrases came from. Click this to go back there.
Format: The type of file you want to create. There are three formats available:
Mp3 Reading Aloud: Creates an mp3 file in which each word or phrase is spoken once in the language you are studying.
Mp3 Vocab Helper: Creates an mp3 file in which each word or phrase is spoken two or three times in the language you are studying, followed by once in your own language, followed by once more in the language you are studying.
Pdf Vocab Sheet: Creates a pdf document with all of the words and phrases in both languages.
Sort order: Words and phrases can be sorted alphabetically, or shuffled into a random order.
Tone: Only available for mp3 files, when the tone option is selected, a mono-tonal sound is played before each new word or phrases is spoken. If you are listening through Bluetooth headphones, you may find that the headphones have an energy optimisation feature that will cut out during silence and as a result fade in at the start of each phrase. To counteract this feature, check the Tone option, which will wake up your headphones.
Below the Options box is the Files box, where your mp3 or pdf files can be downloaded.
