Hello everybody! I'm a student pilot preparing to pass the ICAO level test. I'm not a native speaker and  I've got some problems with the recognition of English speech in radiocommunications, especially if the record has bad quality. I guess listening to recordings and reading of misheard or misunderstood fragments would help me in developing of my skills. I would be very grateful if somebody adviced me any source where I could get such information. Thanks in advance!!!

If you don't mind the subject matter, you might be able to get in touch with your country's accident investigation branch. They usually study and transcribe recordings into both voice and text. It should be public record in most countries.

YouTube has a number of different ATC recordings transcribed into text form as well. Just go there and search for "ATC Recordings" or something like that. Many of the videos will have what you are looking for.

FLLflyboy, Thanks a lot for useful advice! I'll look for it on youtube. Actually I didn't think, that somebody would post ATC recordings with transcriptions there, so I didn't even consider youtube as a variant.
