Elllo stands for English Lesson Listening Library. It is a short video site or slide share site where students can listen to and view short videos/presentations. There is a script for the texts you hear and the recordings are pretty clear. When you finish listening you can just do the listening quiz.
LEVEL: Lower intermediate or upper
Warning: It might be difficult to find the audios you like as the web is a bit chaotic and you seem to need either the number of the video or the name of the series to which it belongs.
This is the link to the site: HERE
