Listen to the British Council’s most popular English language podcasts in LearnEnglish Podcasts.

Improve your listening, reading and understanding of general and business English – any time, anywhere. LearnEnglish Podcasts has lots of special features that make learning English fun.

Podcasts are downloadable any time, so you can access the content offline. Then, when you have finished with an episode, you can delete it to make space on your phone.

LearnEnglish Podcasts – key features

* New podcasts are added every week, so you never run out of things to listen to. We have podcasts on a range of topics, from language learning tips to information about the world, so there is something for everyone.

* Downloadable episodes mean you can listen offline. But don’t worry, when you have done with an episode you can delete it, so it doesn’t use up space on your phone.

* Interactive audio scripts allow you to repeat hard-to-hear phrases or new vocabulary easily. Plus, pitch control means you can slow down the audio speed if the speaker is a bit difficult to understand.

* Background playing means that you can listen to the audio while the screen is off, which means you can slip your phone in your pocket and listen to podcasts on the go.

* Enjoy simple exercises for every episode of content, with a progress screen so that you can track your progress.

* Share what you’re watching and listening to through Facebook, Twitter and email with integrated social media sharing. Celebrate your progress with your friends.
