    You Need To Look After Your Brain Starting Today Ep 444

    Conversations In English That Improve Your English Comprehension ✔Lesson transcript: https://adeptenglish.com/lessons/conversations-in-english-13/
    Our  brains are amazing biological machines, and if you’ve listened to my  English language learning podcasts, you know I like to understand how  our brains work. To help me build and design better language learning  techniques.

    Today I’m going to take a fresh approach to our English listening lesson. Instead of talking about how our brains help us, I’m going to talk about how we can help our brains.

    We  expect a lot from our brains and we expect them to keep working long  into old age. Unfortunately for many people, they may be physically  healthy as they get older, but if you don’t look after your brain it can  fail long before bodies give up.

    So today, as you listen and learn with this conversation in English,  we will talk about what the most recent neuroscience is telling us  about what is happening to our brains as we get older and what you need to do right now while you are still young.

    Just a quick thank you to all those who have rated us on whichever app you are using to listen to us. It really motivates me when I hear from people who  like what we do. Don’t forget that you can contact us and make  suggestions for future podcasts. We get great ideas and they always get  added to my podcast lesson ideas list.

    2 English Idioms You Need To Be Careful With Literally And Figuratively Ep 443

    2 English Idioms You Need To Be Careful With Literally And Figuratively Ep 443

    English Idioms Can Be Tricky ✔Lesson transcript: https://adeptenglish.com/lessons/english-idioms-9/
    We often use English idioms in a way that needs more imagination to get the meaning than you might  expect. Today we cover 2 idioms that could not be more different in  their meaning, however they both can be dangerous to us if used  improperly. Idioms are fun really, it’s handy to know what the most  common ones mean as it would surprise you just how often you will hear  them in everyday English conversations.

    You many not have come across the words figuratively and literally before so I’ve provided links to the meaning of these words. Literally  means translating the words one by one and not pulling them together to  create a greater meaning. Figuratively means you are being asked to take  the English words and phrases and comprehend their meaning and then use  them to imagine a more involved meaning.

    So  I might say “It was a low blow”, if you were to take this literally you  might think about wind a breeze or something happening low to the  ground. What I’m actually figuratively saying is that an action took  place that was unfair. Tricky stuff for new English language learners.

    Unless you learn to spot these metaphorical phrases, you will probably get tripped up by them every now and again.  The good news is any Native English speaker probably won’t even notice.  This type of conversation using idioms and figurative speech is often  just thrown in to speed up the conversation or make it more colourful.  You either get it or you don’t, but it probably won’t stop you from  communication with an English speaker in any meaningful way.

    Working From Home WFH A Practice Conversation In English Ep 442

    Working From Home WFH A Practice Conversation In English Ep 442

    Conversations In English That Help Language Learners With English Comprehension ✔Lesson transcript: https://adeptenglish.com/lessons/conversations-in-english-12/
    Working  from home has gone from being rare to commonplace during the pandemic.  There are positive and negative aspects to this new way of working, and  in today’s English lesson we will focus on the positive. This  contemporary and topical English listening lesson is full of useful conversational English vocabulary and phrases. Remember to listen to the conversation several times using spaced repetition.

    Working  from home is not a new idea, but until the pandemic came along and  forced many people to stay home and work, it was never really an idea  that employers felt comfortable with. No employer could afford to take  the risk of trying working from home on a large scale and see the  experiment fail. So the idea remained an idea that employers could not  afford to try, and we continued to travel to work in offices and change  remained unlikely.

    Now, because  of the pandemic, businesses do not have a choice and are conducting the  experiment, anyway. Businesses in the UK have had the British taxpayer  pay the bills for staff working from home, and now 18 months later the  experiment nobody could afford before has finished and what are the  results? Well, they are interesting and you will need to listen to the  podcast to find out more.

    The thing that’s been  positively surprising to people is that people are more productive  working at home than people would have expected. Some people thought  that everything was just going to fall apart, and it hasn’t. And a lot  of people are actually saying that they’re more productive now.

    Learn About Intermittent Fasting In This English Listening Practice Lesson Ep 441

    Improving Your Health With English Listening Practice ✔Lesson transcript: https://adeptenglish.com/lessons/english-listening-practice-10/
    Today  we talk about fasting in our English listening practice. There are lots  of reasons for fasting, some religious, some to help with weight loss  but more recently people are doing it to help with their health. Fancy  that, an English language podcast that’s interesting, on a topic worth  listening to.

    Today we talk about not eating food, and why this is a good idea for your health. The world-wide trend on the consumption of food is up, we eat much more than we used to. In the UK it’s normal to eat  three enormous meals a day, and snacks in between. So why is there a  growing fasting trend in the UK?

    Adept  English specialises in creating English language lessons that keep you  engaged. We built our system of learning and improving your spoken  English around lots and lots of listening to English being spoken correctly. The more you listen and focus on what you are  hearing, the better your English comprehension and spoken English will  be.

    Notice how much of the English language learning materials you  will find on the Internet are just boring. Even when the content is  useful, it’s just so hard to listen to it impedes your learning. Here at  Adept English we create interesting English language podcast lessons you can come back to time and time again. We make every one of our  lessons interesting enough that you can stay focused on what you are  listening to and use spaced interval learning to lock-in, to your  long-term memory, the time you invest in learning English.

    How To Have A Polite English Conversation Ep 440

    How To Have A Polite English Conversation Ep 440

    Polite English Conversations ✔Lesson transcript: https://adeptenglish.com/lessons/english-conversation-7/
    How to be polite is important to us British. The British, as a rule, go out of our way to maintain polite English conversation,  even when we are complaining. It’s about maintaining the high moral  ground and keep up your manners. We expect people to behave in a decent  and mannered way, and we notice when people are not conforming to the  expected standard of polite interaction.

    Take the use of “sorry”  for example, it’s used so much it’s automatic, a habit. Someone might  bump into you, you both would almost certainly say “I’m sorry” even  though it was probably only one of you who should say it. It’s almost a  cultural thing. There is no harm in saying it, your implicitly accepting  that the incident was an accident and your sorry it happened.

    In some ways it’s a shame, because over using “Sorry” diminishes the meaning behind the word. It’s a bit like “Thanks” (thank you),  you will hear people use this word so much it’s not really a real thank  you, it’s just filler. For example, you might be in a shop and an  attendant approaches you and asks “Are you OK, do you need something?”  and a typical response would be “No I’m fine, thanks”. It’s just a  polite way of ending the conversation.

    My father believed in toughness, honesty, politeness and being on time. All very important lessons.
    ⭐ Roger Moore
    I  think it’s nice to live in a polite society. The British take pride in  being polite, there is an unseen standard being used when you interact  with a British person. Your character and behaviour are quietly being  judged and polite manners will go a long way to help your cause at work  or in everyday life in the UK. It’s relatively simple, it costs you  nothing and will probably help you so there is little or no harm in  being polite with your English conversations.

    Discover London Green Spaces In This English Listening Practice Topic Ep 439

    Discover London Green Spaces In This English Listening Practice Topic Ep 439

    London Is Full Of Parks - English Listening Practice ✔Lesson transcript: https://adeptenglish.com/lessons/english-listening-practice-9/
    London  is looking busy once more, the city is coming back to life. Today we  talk about London, it’s green spaces and parks. Along the way you will  learn a little more about the UK capital city and some pleasant ideas  for a picnic if you're visiting, or a lunch if you're working in London.  So today London and parks are the English listening topics for your English listening practice.

    If  you’ve never visited London, it might surprise you at how green it is.  Although looking out of a Taxi, Train or bus might give you the  impression London is all concrete and glass it’s actually 47% green space. With over 5,000 acres of parkland that you and I can visit and use.

    If  you visit London, one thing you often see at lunch time is all the  office workers heading for a park to eat lunch and sit and lay on the  grass on a sunny day. Or on a sunny bank holiday (England has 8 bank holidays a year, they are national public holidays) you will see many people who live in London out visiting the parks.

    The parks be the lungs of London.
    ⭐ Charles Dickens
    So  in today’s English language listening practice I thought I’d talk about  which parks I like most in London, and some inside tips for you should  you ever be in London and want to eat your lunch in a green space.
