Why the long face? The English we speak podcast!

Once a student asked me why I posted things about everyday English on my website for Academic English. I explained that I thought that you couldn’t hope to improve your Academic English without improving all aspects of your English. If you work on your everyday spoken English skills this is going to have a positive impact on your writing skills too in the long run. If your everyday spoken English is stronger then you are going to find it easier to mix with other students, and you are going to find it easier to join in with university life in general – which is very important!

So international students at university should be working on all areas of their English and today’s link is to a regular podcast from the BBC World Service’s Learning English service called The English We Speak Podcast. You should sign up to receive this regular podcast and make listening to it part of your weekly English language improvement routine. You can subscribe to the podcast here!
