ENGLISH PREMIUM Courses:
Welcome to the Speak English Now Podcast, where you can improve your listening and speaking skills! I’ve recorded each episode in English with high-quality audio and clear pronunciation.
Through this podcast, you’ll learn about both American culture and the English language itself. You’ll also improve your English through mini-stories and point-of-view lessons.
Additionally, there’s a transcript available in PDF format for every episode.
Now, you might be wondering what’s different about my podcast. That’s a great question!
While there are many areas of English that you can improve, my focus and mission are to help you speak English fluently.
Let me repeat: my mission is to help you speak English fluently.
If you need to improve in other areas, such as writing or formal grammar, I recommend finding other resources. But if your goal is to expand your speaking skills, then this podcast is for you.
Each episode begins with a discussion on a particular topic, which may include:
Lifestyle and Culture: When learning a foreign language, having the necessary context is essential to understanding conversations. The more you know about the lifestyle and culture, the better you’ll be able to comprehend English conversations.
Language: In this section, I discuss parts of the language that can be difficult. A little explanation can go a long way, such as with conditionals.
Vocabulary: While listening and reading can help you learn a lot of vocabulary, it’s also helpful to see specific vocabulary related to topics like traveling, technology, and more. And of course, I won’t forget about phrasal verbs.
Advice: I’ll help you become an independent learner and guide you through the process. Some episodes will cover things you need to know to learn English more effectively, such as the benefits of repeated listening and how to choose appropriate material levels.
Don’t worry – I’ll make everything easy to understand and incredibly useful.
Because having a transcript is essential for language learners, I’ll write the transcript for every episode, which will be available to you.
