It’s important to me I find something contemporary, something that native English speakers are talking about today, using everyday English. Because the best content for a new English language learner to learn how to speak English fluently, is to listen to and use English that’s being spoken right now my millions of British people. It’s one of my pet complaints when I listen to other peoples English teaching material. The content may well be excellent, it might be a valuable lesson, but the producer of the work uses artificial English to build the lesson around.

    You can find the full web article, media and transcripts for the lesson here: https://adeptenglish.com/lessons/practise-english-pronunciation-3/Practise English Pronunciation We haven’t had a lesson focus on English pronunciation for quite some time, so today we launch into what most people find hard to pronounce clearly and correctly. Even native English speakers will make mistakes doing these English pronunciation practice pieces. One of the most important rules in every one of our lessons, the topic should be interesting and fun. If it’s not, then why would you listen to it again?

    You can find the full web article, media and transcripts for the lesson here: https://adeptenglish.com/lessons/english-speaking-topics-2/Interesting English Speaking Topics I don’t know if it was thinking about how to the British talk about time in last week’s English lesson or because of something I saw on the news. However, today the learn to speak English topic has a time theme as it is on time zones. Given how much time zones affect us, we hardly give them any thought. I can sit down to breakfast and be watching something happening live on the news happening in a country which is dark because it’s nighttime, and I barely think about what that means. As I type this English lesson out on my old laptop people are sleeping, some are already a day ahead of me and it’s not until I get on a plane do I even think about what this means for me.

    You can find the full web article, media and transcripts for the lesson here: https://adeptenglish.com/lessons/common-english-words-4/Common English Words Used In Telling Time In British English Time waits for no-one. Time is money. Time is something we all talk about constantly, we use it all the time (pun intended!) in everyday life. As always, native English speakers use shortcut phrases when talking about specific time scenarios, common English words which describe obvious times of the day which are worth knowing. So today we are going to practice our use of English time vocabulary for both digital times and analogue times. Breakfast time in the UK is typically between 7am and 9am, but do you know what the (am) stands for? Lunch is usually between twelve and one thirty pm. Did you notice I switched to using twelve, but I didn’t specify at night or midday, because the context suggested lunch, oh and I used (pm).

Winter in the UK can be cold and wet, with a lot of your time spent indoors. So we British are quite used to keeping ourselves amused and entertained indoors. However, this winter we will miss an important part of the recipe that keeps us happy, we won’t be going to other people’s houses or having people round to socialise with. We’ve talked about how short the days are in the UK over winter and how we can end up leaving home in the dark and coming home in the dark, not really seeing the outside, in several previous podcasts.

    An English Idiom You Should All Know Ep 371

    08/10/2020 Duration: 10min

    You can find the full web article, media and transcripts for the lesson here: https://adeptenglish.com/lessons/english-idioms-4/Everyday English Idioms I think it’s true that positive rewards are a better motivation for most people, rather than negative ones. However, if you need someone to do something, and suitable rewards cannot encourage them to act, you sometimes need to highlight negative or even threatening outcomes. Especially if people will not do what you need them to do. Now that took quite a lot of English vocabulary to explain a simple scenario, a native English speaker would prefer to use an English idiom, a metaphor which explains the scenario in a much simpler idiomatic way. We experience this influence all the time in our everyday lives. Someone wants you to do something and they offer a reward if you do it, or sometimes they want you do something you might not want to do and you face repercussions if you don’t do it.

It’s about football, and we learn English speaking through listening to the conversation with a focus on how the words are spoken. Listening to this lesson several times will help you with your automatic English comprehension. Although we design all of our English lessons to be interesting, that does not always mean it is something you agree with. Today we are going to talk about a lot of very rich people (The average monthly salary of a Premier League player is around 240,000.) who are asking for UK tax payers money during the UK shutdown. Now the argument is, not everyone who plays football in the UK is wealthy and some smaller clubs need help to stay in business. I think one issue foot

Although the internet is a great and easy way of looking these things up, you get a lot of contradictory facts.
