  1. I’m not sure whether this is the right place to post this (and I hope that this doesn’t go against any rules)…. I’m an English teacher, language learner (French, Italian, Mandarin), and a generally curious person. I was always really frustrated with traditional ‘listening resources’ for language learning, and thought I would like something more interesting if I was learning English. So I’ve just started a podcast for English learners - it’s now on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and lots of other podcast channels. The idea is that it’s ‘English Learning for Curious Minds’ - we take a different topic every week and produce a short explainer podcast, complete with transcript & key vocabulary. I’m posting here in case it might be of interest to people - so far students from 110 countries have listened to it, and feedback has been pretty positive. I’d love to know what people thought!

  2. Better English Issue #1 Wins Kirill participated in, and finished, his first half marathon on September 15, 2019. Kirill is a full time lawyer, father, husband and more! And yet, he managed to squeeze running into his hectic schedule. Read more about the race here. Kirill is pictured above with his family. (You can see the images on your laptop, if not on your phone!) Let me know of recent wins in your life, big or small, that you’re proud of! Write to me here, teacher.nia.online@gmail.com Send pictures! Vocabulary Expansion Did you know that in English we don’t eat coffee? We drink coffee. We have coffee. We imbibe coffee. We sip coffee. But we don’t eat it. Eating involves mastication, involves chewing. What about ice cream? We don’t eat ice cream, either. We don’t chew it. However, we don’t simply swallow ice cream, either, as if it were a liquid! We have ice cream. We don’t eat ice cream. We don’t imbibe ice cream. We don’t sip ice cream. We just have ice cream. That’s it! When speaking of consuming any solid food, semi-solid food, soft food or liquid, the safest, and always correct, verb to use is “to have”. Recently, I had eggs cooked in butter with sliced tomatoes and hot peppers. I also had milk with two tablespoons of Nescafe Clasico stirred in. What did you have recently for one of your meals? Did you see any new vocabulary? Read the above short text on Readlang! To Eat, To Drink, or To Have That is the Question Resources Readlang is a great tool for vocabulary expansion and review.

Listening Comprehension Challenge Secrets of Success in 8 Words, 3 Minutes What was this person saying and what made understanding them so challenging? What could this person have done to make it easier for his audience to understand him? How can you make your English easier for your audience to understand? Gems from Class interested vs interesting Both interested and interesting are adjectives. interested says something about how the subject feels For example: I am interested in travel. In this sentence, “I” is the subject. This sentence talks about how “I” feel. interesting says something about the power of the subject to make other people feel a certain way. For example: Travel is interesting. In this sentence, “Travel” is the subject. This sentence talks about the fact that “travel” has the power of making people feel a certain way. For more practice and to subconsciously learn the rules, do some online exercises. Here is a link. Repeat the exercise many times until you get 100% correct repeatedly. Pronunciation & Intonation met SOUNDS LIKE set, bet debt, jet, let, net, pet met is the simple past affirmative form of the verb “to meet” meet SOUNDS LIKE meat, seat, neat, feet, feat, Crete meet is one of the simple present affirmative forms of the verb “to meet” the other simple present affirmative form of the verb “to meet” is meets Tip: When reading and writing, use your voice! When you use your voice, you’ll be less likely to write “met” when you mean “meet”. You’ll be less likely to write one word, when you really mean another one.

  3. Hola a todos! I just wanted a share a new podcast a friend of mine and I have created to help intermediate to advanced Spanish learners practice their listening skills (we're both spanish teachers on italki). Each episode is a conversation about a certain topic and lasts about 20 minutes. This is real Mexican Spanish at a normal native speaker speed so you can actually hear how natives speak in a casual conversation. Check it out here: https://itunes.apple.com/mx/podcast/no-hay-tos/id1360162037?mt=2 https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/espanol-real RSS Feed: https://feeds.buzzsprout.com/162248.rss Btw, any feedback is always welcome. Que tengan un buen día! You can also check out our new website for more resources about the language and Mexican culture: www.nohaytospodcast.com

  8. Greetings: I live in Mexico. Previously I taught English in China for several years and it was necessary to learn their language to adjust my teaching style to their needs. Now, living in Mexico I can see very clearly some of the problems facing Latino students who desire to learn English. I just finished converting my Chinese phonetics program to Spanish to aid hispanohablantes. There are less sounds in Spanish than the target language English, therefore native Spanish Speakers need to be taught these sounds which, from their point of view, are unknown to them...not within their experience. The URL is here. http://www.elaanslist.com/display/fluency.php . It is not an app, but instead it is a screen cast used for self-learning. It requires personal dedication and verbal discipline to complete. It is to be used with your current English lessons.
  9. Dear all I have been studying languages for a long time. I listen to a lot of Radio to improve my French, Cantonese and Mandarin listening skills. Because of that I created an Android App to listen to different languages (Mandarin, Cantonese, English, French, German). Maybe it can help your language learning as well: Free version: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.language.radio.stream Full version: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.language.radio.full I found that this mix of studying words and listening to everyday content on radio speeds up my learning. rgds Oliver
