Elementary Podcasts

Elementary Podcasts are suitable for learners with different levels of English. Here are some ways to make them easier (if you have a lower level of English) or more difficult (if you have a higher level of English). You can choose one or two of these suggestions - you don't have to follow all of them!

Making it easier

  • Read all the exercises before you listen to the podcast.
  • Look up the words in the exercises that you don't know in a dictionary.
  • Play the podcast as many times as you need.
  • Play each part of the podcast separately.
  • Read the transcript after you have listened to the podcast.

Making it harder

  • Listen to the podcast before you read the exercises.
  • Only play the podcast once before answering the questions.
  • Play the whole podcast without a break.
  • Don't read the transcript.

Now, listen to the podcast and do the exercises.

Hi Mora ezzat,

A few weeks ago there was a technical problem for some other Egyptian users. I thought it had been fixed, but perhaps it was not. Could you please try again in and let us know exactly what error message you get? In the meantime I will see if I can find out anything on my end.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team

Hello Mora ezzat,

Thank you for this information. As soon as I find out anything about this, I will let you know. I'm afraid I have no idea how long it will take.

In the meantime, please try the page every once in awhile just in case the problem is resolved on its own. I'm very sorry for the inconvenience!

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team

Hi Mora ezzat,

Great! Thanks very much for reporting this to us, it's very helpful.

If it's not inconvenient, you might want to consider downloading all the episodes in each series. Hopefully the problem has been fixed for good, but it's happened several times in the past few months for other users in Egypt, so it might not be a bad idea to download them in case it happens again.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team

Hi Mora ezzat,

Oh no! I will let the technical team know again. From what I understand, the problem is not completely under their control, but I will let them know that it has returned. We're very sorry for the inconvenience!

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team

Sir, I have completed all the four series and I want to ask you if the Carolina, Jamie and Emily's story is real or created by your team, if real, do they guys (I mean the three students at Newcastle university) let you follow their life ?

Will there be a series 5 in 2018 ? if yes, Could you tell us around which month ?

Hello SonuKumar,

I'm happy to hear that you completed all four series -- that shows quite a lot of dedication on your part! We are working on series 5, but I'm afraid we really don't know when it will be ready to be published yet, as there's still a lot to do.

The stories here are fictional, though we tried to make them true to life.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team

Hi ritesh46.

It's nice to hear you are enjoying the podcast! It takes some time to produce a new series and while I can't give you a date yet I believe that Series 5 is planned.


Best wishes,


The LearnEnglish Team
