    878. From Learning to Teaching and Beyond (with Elena Mutonono)

    878. From Learning to Teaching and Beyond (with Elena Mutonono)

    These days Elena Mutonono is an experienced business coach who helps online English teachers to gain independence and control over their own careers, but Elena's journey started as a learner of English herself. In this conversation I ask Elena about how she learned English, making the step to becoming an English teacher, then teacher trainer and what challenges online English teachers face when trying to work in a crowded and demanding job market.

    877. How to Learn Vocabulary | A Conversation with Clare Whitmell

    877. How to Learn Vocabulary | A Conversation with Clare Whitmell

    This conversation is a preview of my Zoom workshop on Thurs 18 April 2024 at 10AM (UK time), as part of the Advanced English Summit. In my workshop I will be talking about how to really learn vocabulary, and not just stare at word lists.
    This is a conversation about the subject of the workshop, and summit organiser Clare Whitmell asks me questions about why vocabulary is important, why I love teaching it, common mistakes made by learners, ways of learning vocabulary more effectively, and some tools you can use.

    875. Aepyornis Island by HG Wells 🏝️🥚 (Learn English with a Short Story)

    875. Aepyornis Island by HG Wells 🏝️🥚 (Learn English with a Short Story)

    Learn English with another short story. I'll read the entire story to you, and then go through the text again explaining and clarifying the main events and plenty of vocabulary. This is a wonderful adventure story written by HG Wells, a very influential and imaginative English writer from the late 19th century. The story is full of vivid descriptive language, action, adventure and extraordinary moments. I hope it captures your imagination and lets the English come alive in memorable ways.
    The story starts after about 12 minutes.

    874. Walk & Talk: PARIS

    874. Walk & Talk: PARIS

    Here is an episode in which I walk through the streets of Paris, rambling about a particular subject. This time the subject is Paris itself. This summer Paris is hosting the Olympic Games. The city will be filled with visitors. I am very curious to see how the city will handle this moment. Will it be a huge success? What will visitors think of the city? Will anyone suffer from the mysterious "Paris Syndrome"? Join me on my walk, follow my words, look out for vocab and consider using my questions for your own speaking practice.

    873. Luke takes the MBTI Personality Test

    873. Luke takes the MBTI Personality Test

    The MBTI Personality Test (aka "16 Personalities") is a very well-known and widely used test which claims to be able to give you a "freakishly accurate" analysis of your personality type. In this episode I take the test, explain the reasons for my answers, explain some vocabulary and give my thoughts on the test results and the test itself. Includes plenty of expressions for describing personality traits, behaviour, ways of thinking and feeling and the subject of psychological testing.

I’m not 🥷, not skeleton. I’m 5ivesheep 🤭

I find the most precious aspect of your podcast to be the attitude towards language learning and the exploration of the world’s diversity. You inspire me to stay open-minded, positive, kind, and create connections with others. That’s what I’ve learned from listening to your podcast over the past five years. I also appreciate your introduction to David Crystal. I’ve read several of his books and enjoyed them. I wish I could also purchase your father’s book. It sounds very interesting. I particularly enjoy your rambling episodes. They show me the importance of continuous exposure to diverse content over time.
