Your English Podcasts

Your English podcasts are free English lessons with oral drills that will improve your spoken English dramatically—because they are "interactive," i.e., they will make you speak English!

Remember that doing these drills orally in real-time is far more difficult than doing the same work either by reading or writing a text or doing a written exercise. We guarantee that learners will make progress if they do the podcasts seriously and "speak" their answers. Scripts are avaîlable (cf. the bottom of the page).

In some cases, there are sentences or phrases to repeat. In others, you have to complete or transform the sentences after hearing a stimulus. You are given the right answer immediately after the blank so you can instantly check your progress. Some episodes have debate questions you can practice on your own and then use them with your classmates or friends in English class!

Your English Podcasts are of mixed levels:

Pre-Intermediate
to Intermediate (PI-I: A2-B1), Intermediate (I: B1-B2), Intermediate to
Advanced (I-A: B2-C1), Advanced (A: C1-C2). For explanations: CEFR
levels
] should be opened with 7-zip software available free from 7-zip.org.

It is more a way of showing respect for other languages besides our own.
