This podcast for intermediate learners trains you to say a few words about yourself. "Your English" is a series of podcasts to help you learn to speak English with short sentences for you to repeat or complete orally. The accent is American. There are different levels (A2-C2). The vocabulary is basic with an emphasis on global English. For grammar drills download the "QualityTime-ESL podcasts" and for fun with song lyrics listen to "5 Minute TOPs". Scripts are available. Here we learn "to introduce ourselves".
Oral exercises (drills) with the verb "To Be" (all tenses) to learn to speak English in ESL/EFL/ELT courses for beginners or pre-intermediate (A1-B1)
Intensive practice with irregular verb as preparation for the story "Was It Love?" which will include more than 140 irregular verbs—most of which are essential vocabulary for ESL/EFL/ELT students.
Finally a different way to learn irregular verbs through a new way of grouping them plus oral exercises and a story with I40+ irregular verbs used in context with repetition and oral completion work by QualityTime-ESL.
We are now continuing our ESL “Irregular Verb Challenge", which means we are going to produce a story "Was It Love?" in episodes that will include all the 140+ Irregular verbs that students often find tiresome to learn. Here is episode 3.
With this podcast we are continuing our series of episodes on the "phrasal verbs". This time the verb "look". These podcasts are intended for students with a high level of English as phrasal verbs can at times be tricky to learn.
The reason behind these QualityTime-ESL grammar oriented podcasts: the idea here is simply to "speak" the answers instead of writing them. Best way to learn to communicate correctly with English speaking people. The method is free and produced by Marianne Raynaud, formerly head of department at INPG.
