About LearnEnglish Podcasts - Free English listening

*** Our popular “Special Days” audio series is now available in full for free. Learn about a range of fascinating subjects, and the special days and festivals in the calendar that celebrate them. ***

Listen to everyday conversations recorded by native British English speakers in our LearnEnglish Podcasts series, and improve listening skills. Listen to podcast hosts Tess, Ravi, Adam and Rob chatting with different people and talking about different everyday topics, such as their favourite celebrities, making plans for the weekend, having a dinner party and which cities they like to live in.

The app helps you learn everyday English by providing 80 episodes and over 20 hours of free listening about a wide range of topics, as well as great new features that help you listen and understand the conversations.

LISTEN, READ AND CHECK THAT YOU UNDERSTAND
In every episode, listen and read along with a moving audioscript. The audioscript gets highlighted to help you focus on listening. Comprehension questions come with each episode so that you can check your listening and whether you understand the conversation.

HOW THE APP HELPS YOU LEARN EVERYDAY ENGLISH
The best way to improve your listening skills is to listen to a little bit every day and try to listen to a wide range of different topics in English. When you’re listening, try to remember or write down as many of the main points as possible.

FEATURES BACKGROUND PLAYING AND OFFLINE ACCESS
