    #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

    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.

    #176 Should I Listen to Slow or Natural English?

    #176 Should I Listen to Slow or Natural English?

    I often get people asking me to speak more slowly or sometimes to speed up! I can't please everyone, but in this episode, I talk about the benefits of slow and natural English and which might be best for you.

    I also talk about my own speaking speed and whether that could help you too.
