LearnEnglish Podcasts

LearnEnglish Podcasts app is a series of English learning podcasts to practise your English on the go.

Available On

Listen to the British Council’s most popular English learning podcast series, LearnEnglish Podcasts, on your mobile device!

The app helps you learn everyday English by providing over 80 episodes and over 20 hours of free listening about a wide range of topics, as well as great new features that help you listen and understand the conversations.

In each episode, podcast hosts Tess, Ravi, Adam and Rob chat with different people to talk about everyday topics such as their favourite celebrities, making plans for the weekend, having a dinner party and which cities they like to live in.

Listen, read and check that you understand

In every episode, listen and read along with a moving audioscript. The audioscript gets highlighted to help you focus on listening. Comprehension questions come with each episode so that you can check your listening and whether you understand the conversation.

Features background playing and offline access

The audio plays even when the screen is turned off. You can also download episodes onto your tablet or phone and listen offline, and delete episodes after you’ve listened to them to create space on your tablet or phone. Re-download the episodes when you want to listen again.

Hi l’m Aisha
I really enjoy listening to podcast and l would like to comment to the podcast and participate but i don’t know how? Please if you can help me how where i can listen to know or daily podcast and how to write a comment to them.

Hello Aisha_3

In LearnEnglish from home, I believe they do ask for input from users if that interests you. Do they not mention an email address in the podcast?

All the best

Perfect.

The podcasts are excellent. I ve listened to them in my car when I conmute to work. It would fantastic that the other tools like Audio zone could be included in them.

Hello Silvia Mabel,

Thank you for the comment. It's nice to know our podcasts are helping people.

Thanks also for your suggestion. I don't know when the app might be updated but suggestions are always welcome.

Which series is suitable for upper intermediate level ?

Hello Saraaaa11

Of our podcasts, I'd recommend Series 1 and 2, though you might find them a little bit easy. If video is a possibility, our video series Word on the Street and Britain is GREAT are good choices for the upper intermediate level. Finally, I'd also recommend the Audio zone, which has audio mostly at this level as well, and our Listening skills at the B2 level.

Best wishes
