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 of course aloud. Scripts are avaîlable (cf. the bottom of the page).
In some cases there are sentences or phrases to repeat and 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 easily check your progress. Certain episodes have debate questions you can practice on your own and then use with your classmates or friends… in English! The teacher’s version of our podcasts comes with oral and written worksheets, suggested activities, and assignments (for some of the episodes). All materials are in both PDF and in DOC (to allow customizing). These special Zips must be opened with 7-zip software available free from 7-zip.org.

"QT-ESL" podcasts are designed for both students working on their own and teachers looking for oral exercises/drills that focus on essential knowledge of English grammar. SELF-TESTS are available.
