    An Interesting English Listening Practice Lesson About Climate Change Ep 488

    An Interesting English Listening Practice Lesson About Climate Change Ep 488

    In this English listening practice lesson, I have recorded a topic which is about climate change and the recent COP 26 climate conference that was hosted in Glasgow in Scotland by the UK government. Making interesting English lessons is important. Keeping you focused and engaged in the content you need to learn to improve your English skills is half the battle when learning a new language. In this lesson, you will hear lots of  English vocabulary, idioms, phrases and British culture and views, so jump in and start listening now.

    This lesson will help you improve your English language listening skills.
    ✔Lesson transcript: https://adeptenglish.com/lessons/english-lessons-listening-practice-climate/

    The  COP26 was a two week UN-sponsored international conference held in the  Scottish Event Campus, Glasgow, UK. COP stands for ‘Conference of the  Parties’ this is a term used by the United Nations Climate Change which  is used to refer to meetings held annually during its Convention period.  The conference seeks to reduce global warming to well below 2 degrees  Celsius, aiming for 1.5 degrees if possible.

    With important countries not attending the event, and some important world leaders sleeping during presentations,  ask yourself, are we taking these problems seriously any more? Even the  event’s name suggests we have genuine problems agreeing to make changes  collectively. We are in the 26th meeting and we still don’t have a  common world agreement dealing with the key issue of temperature rises.

    Not only can you practice listening to natural, conversational English being used in real-life situations,  talking about real-world events. You can also read along and look up  difficult vocabulary at the same time using our free PDF transcript for every audio lesson.  If you’re an English language learner and want to bring your listening  skills up a notch, you’re in the right place. Listening to our podcast will help you.

    So why not listen to our free English language podcasts and keep up to date with the world without having to leave the comfort  of your home. We have lots of listening practice lessons where you can  learn to speak better English with two new English listening practice  lessons every week.

    She is Pregnant! How To Express Your Joy Using The English Grammar Of Exclamations Ep 487

    She is Pregnant! How To Express Your Joy Using The English Grammar Of Exclamations Ep 487

    Today’s lesson is about the English grammar of exclamations, and the language used in expressing emotions. The  grammar of exclamations can get complicated because there are different  kinds of exclamations, each with specific rules on how to use them. In  this lesson, you will learn specific exclamations to talk about how you  feel in response to hearing some news someone has just told you. To keep you on your toes, we have a quiz at the end of the podcast where you can practice what you’ve learned.

    Let's learn the English grammar of exclamations!
    ✔Lesson transcript: https://adeptenglish.com/lessons/english-learn-grammar-exclamations/

    Whenever  I hear the word ‘Exclamation’, I think of something that is exciting,  happy or sad. The general idea behind an exclamation is to express your  emotions in reaction to an event or news. Although it’s easy in today’s  use of English online to slip into acronyms like LOL! or even swearing  to express your emotions, we won’t be doing that in our lesson. In this  lesson, we give you a range of exclamations which you can use to safely express your feelings, appropriate for any English conversation.

    Enjoy today’s podcast and make sure you practice what you’ve learned by repeat listening to  the lesson. You don’t have to listen to the same podcast over and over,  although you could. It’s best to listen to a lesson, then maybe the next  day listen again. If you feel you’ve remembered most of what you’ve  heard, then come back and listen to the lesson again in a week. We call  this type of learning spaced repetition learning. You can do this will  multiple podcast lessons at the same time. So when you are not repeat  listening to one, you can repeat listen to another.

    We  know that this type of spaced repetition learning encourages our brains  to take notice of what we are trying to learn and improves the  likelihood of this type of information being stored in our longer term  memory. Which is exactly what we want for language learning, which needs  automatic recall from long-term language memory.

    I’m often asked,  “How many times do I need to listen?” well it’s always going to be  different for every language learner. That said, I would recommend that  you need to hear the word or phrase you are listening to a minimum of 20  times spaced out over time. So, for example, let’s say a phrase “What a  disaster!” appears 5 times in a lesson. To hear it 20 times, you will  need to listen to the lesson 4 times spread out over approximately 10  days.

    Remember, it’s not an exact science, so don’t get stuck on the statistics. Just plan for some repeat listening and aim to listen to key phrases, pronunciations, vocabulary etc. a minimum of 20 times.

    How Your Brain Grows With English Listening Practice Ep 486

    How Your Brain Grows With English Listening Practice Ep 486

    In today’s English listening practice we learn about ordinary people learning huge amounts of information, so  much information they actually grow the size of their brains doing it.  Along the way you will learn about London taxis and British culture.  Listening to everyday English phrases, vocabulary, grammar will help  improve your English listening comprehension skills.

    English Listening Practice Will Change Your Brain
    ✔Lesson transcript: https://adeptenglish.com/lessons/english-listening-practice-grow-your-brain/

    Your brain is amazing. It’s the most complex object in the known universe, containing around 100 billion neurons, each of which can connect to thousands of other neurons. Our brains are malleable - meaning they grow and change based on what we do with them.  Developing listening skills by listening to everyday English phrases,  vocabulary, grammar will help improve your English listening  comprehension skills.

    Your  brain can keep changing throughout your life. Think of your brain as a  muscle. If you exercise your brain, it will grow bigger and stronger.  You can think of learning a new language, like English, as going to the  brain gym and working out. As with any skill, it takes a little time and  repeat practice, but you can and will grow your brain as you learn to speak English.

    All of our English listening lessons are designed to help you with learning and memorising English  vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation and more in a fun and easy way. We  design our lessons this way because we know that most people can  maintain focused listening for about 10-15 minutes. That means you  really pay attention to what is being said and how it is said. We know  that information given as stories, with lots of context, helps people  with storing information in the brain. We know that spaced repetition is  a very efficient way of keeping new information stored in your brain’s  longer term memory.

    Giving you English lessons in the way that we do is no accident. We have a reason for keeping our English lessons typically 2000 words long, with about 500-600 unique English words in each lesson. Our approach to learning to speak English is popular because it works. The science behind the lessons is invisible. All you need to do is find the time to listen and learn.
