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.

Hello Daniel,

Thanks for participating! The best place to do send your comments is the webpage for the episode you've listened to. For example, if you've listened to Series 1 Episode 1, you can see what other people have written (and write your own comments) on that episode's webpage. Every episode has its own webpage and you can find all of them on our LearnEnglish podcasts page.

We are currently working on the next series (series 5) of the podcasts and we hope to hear more from you!

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team

Hello! I love the British Council's content. I've listened to the Series 1 Podcast and just started Series 2... I'm deeply disappointed that Gordon is gone. My favourite parts are his jokes and Carolina's saga, but ever since she met Jamie, Gordon was the only thing 100% nice. Miss you, Gordon! (P.S. Ravi, I love you, but the jokes will never be the same without Gordon)

Dear Sir/Madam
First of all I should say thanks to you for your good program. So how can I have lesson texts in PDF or Word or any format? I think it is necessary for work on it.

Thanx for this useful App , I'm afraid that this program don't work properly with me, just start it stops work and turns off
