    #182 TV Series to Improve Your British English (Part 2)

    #182 TV Series to Improve Your British English (Part 2)

    I spoke about 14 TV shows to improve your British English in episode 22 of the podcast.
    Since then, I've got a lot of requests to make a Part 2. To be honest, I don't watch much TV so I struggle to make a good list. Of the TV series I do watch, many of them aren't good examples of British English (or even English in general, such as 'Vikings'!)
    My general advice is, rather than watching something that will improve your English, just watch something that you enjoy. Enjoyment should always come first.
    Having said that, if you're not sure where to start, here are some ideas that you may enjoy.

    #180 Things That Annoy Us

    #180 Things That Annoy Us

    Welcome back to another Saturday episode!

    In today's episode, I'm reacting to another Reddit post on /AskReddit which was "What things p*** you off the most?" (that's another way of saying "What annoys you most?")

    In this episode, I read out some of my favourite things and talk about why they annoy me! Do you agree with me on any?

    #179 Overweight Children... (An IELTS Writing Question)

    #179 Overweight Children... (An IELTS Writing Question)

    A listener requested I respond to an IELTS Writing Part 2 question in an episode, but rather than answer the question in the exam style, I'm allowed to ramble on in my usual way and discuss both sides of the question.

    The idea here is that it might help you become clear on how you can answer similar questions for yourself.

    Even if you're not taking the exam, it might be interesting to hear my thoughts on this difficult topic! What do you think about it?

    #178 Watching The News

    #178 Watching The News

    I think we all have love-hate relationships with the news these days, don't we?

    Some of us are addicted to watching and it harms our mental health, while others have cut it out completely. Let's discuss this topic today while looking at lots of useful vocabulary.
