I Have a Dream

Today the US celebrates Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

In  his honor, here is his I Have a Dream Speech, one of the most famous and well known American speeches. It is very inspirational and great to watch not only for the vocabulary you can learn, but also for some of the speaking techniques that he uses (those of you in our 500 classes may already be familiar with this speech!).

There is a transcript that you can read while you listen to the speech. Take your time. Pause the speech when necessary and listen to it as many times as you’d like to help.

Click here to listen to the speech: I Have a Dream (the transcript is on the same page)

You can also read a little bit about the holiday and its history here.
