…and I cannot lie! 

I listen to at least one podcast episode a day.

Look for the topic you’re more interested in and go for it. I recommend you to practice SHADOWING. That’s an imitation technique. You listen to a sentence, pause, and not only repeat it, but you imitate it! Imitate the person’s pronunciation, intonation, and rhythm!

Do it, please… at least for a week. You’ll notice how helpful they are and then come back here and let me know!

 

How to listen to Podcasts?

Listen to each episode 3 times. Try listening to them with full concentration.

  1. First, just listen. Try to understand what the contexts and topics are.
  2. Listen and read. If possible check the transcription. Most ESL podcasts include the transcription. This is one of MY FAV exercises! It helps you practice pronunciation and improve your vocabulary.
  3. Listen again without the subtitles! 

If you ask me, I’d recommend you to listen to each episode until you understand each and every word!

If you are too busy… that’s ok, having a podcast playing in the background will help you get familiar with the sounds, rhythm, and English intonation.
