Academic English podcast

Happy New Year to all English for University.Com readers around the world!

The start of a new year is a good time to start some new habits – and you might be looking for new ways to improve your English.

In this post I am going to remind readers about the Academic English podcast published by Martin McMorrow at the Student Learning Centre at Massey University in Auckland.

Martin regularly chooses a new academic word and introduces it and gives exercises and a video focusing on the word. You can subscribe to the podcast so it comes regularly to your inbox.

All you have to do is to learn the word that Martin sends you! It’s free. It’s high quality material. Visit and subscribe to Martin’s Academic English podcast here. (And the current word he talks about is AUSTERITY. Very topical Martin!)
