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.

This App, like the other British Council APPs, is an awesome work. They help learners who have internet access improve their English whenever and wherever they want.
I have them in my iPhone but I can't use them all the time because in my country, Yemen, we don't have internet access in all institutions and areas. These applications help only those who are able to buy such devices, and most people in poor countries face difficulty to buy this kind of expensive  devices.
I am wondering if the British Council can provide applications that do not need internet connection, and  if they can contact some companies to make cheap devices that allow  poor people use the British Council products to improve their English.
