Task 1

Task 2

Adverbials of frequency

When you introduce yourself, it is common that you might say a bit about your normal routine. When Magda introduces herself, she uses words like ‘sometimes’ and ‘often’ when she talks about things she does. These words are adverbs and they are used to say how often we do things.


You can find out more about these words and expressions here.

Task 3





Hi friends
My name is kharchi chaima and l am new in the learn English team

how can I stop the video at the episode meet magda? it starts instantly and there's not button to stop it, and the voice in the video is distorted, I prefer the podcast.
thank you

Hello bittzzaa,

I'm afraid the page is designed as an animation and automatically plays on loading. Once it has finished you can use the audio player above the exercises to play and pause the audio just as with the podcast, but there is no way to stop the animation on first load.

Best wishes,

hi! what time is it ? I’ve been living in London for two years now.
Thank you!

Ha-ha, I think sometimes magda's accent sounds like the same as Carolina's. I enjoy it a lot. :-D

It seems easier to understand these audios, but it's so hard to understand people talking in movies and tv shows. In real life people talk more like in movies, right?

Hello MichieOlive,

The materials on LearnEnglish are mainly designed for English language learners, while still being examples of very authentic English. The language in films and TV shows assumes that the audience speaks perfect English, and so is often harder in terms of speed and the language used. The language in films and TV shows is often also quite specific in terms of topic and may include slang and dialect, which also makes it harder. Watching films in English with English subtitles can be very helpful, I think.

Best wishes,

Hello ,
I liked your answer above and I think I'm very weak in listening English so I ask, Can you help me for give me links lessons or conversations for the beginners .

I check up parts from (Series 01 Episode 0) but It doesn't useful for me I need lessons less words and slow and also part (kids learn) is very simple .

* note: (sorry for the mistakes) .

Hello Fatima,

I'd recommend you try Series 3 and 4 of Elementary Podcasts, which are a bit easier than Series 1 and 2. Remember that you can use the transcript to help you understand the podcasts.

If those series are still too difficult, I'd recommend you try our Find out your English level page. At the bottom of the page, you can search for content on our site by level. I'd recommend searching for content at levels A2 or B1.

If you still can't find suitable content, please let us know and we'll guide you some more.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team
