Hi everyone!

I’m Georgiana; founder of SpeakEnglishPodcast.com. My mission is to help YOU speak English fluently.

In today’s episode:

Awesome! Let’s get started!

  • Look up to someone

When you look up to someone, you view them with respect and admiration.


“Tom truly looks up to his father, and he wants to become a policeman, just like his dad.” 

This expression refers to a sailor learning the different ropes for the sails of a ship. When you show the ropes to someone, you explain to them how to do a particular task correctly:

“It’ll take me a couple of weeks to show you the ropes but, after that, you’ll be entirely prepared for the task.”

  • Day one

We usually use the expression day one to talk about something that happens from the very beginning of an activity or a process.


“I’m sorry, but your project was meant to fail from day one!”

“This procedure has never worked from day one.”

With Georgiana’s method  I have started speaking English from minute one and this is exactly what I needed. With the traditional method you will practice grammar, grammar and grammar, but with Georgiana’s method you will practice listening and speaking and in my opinion this is the most important thing when you are learning a new language.
