Hi ClanPsi,

This repetition is on purpose, as it highlights part of the podcasts in this series. But thank you very much for taking the time to tell us about what looked like a mistake. We do make them sometimes and are always grateful when our users point them out to us.

All the best,

Can someone tell me where I find PDF with the exercises?
Thank you

Hello naisamelo,

I'm afraid we don't have the PDF with the exercises at the moment. I really don't know what happened, but will look into it and then add it to the page once I find it. I'm very sorry for the inconvenience!

Hello, this is exercises help me a lot

I'm learnig a lot of new words

I'm a listener of this podcast.In the first lesson ,you said making word groups will help you to remeber new words easily.Could you please recommend such word groups?

Hello Parvathy Das,

The idea here is to learn words with other words that they commonly go with. For example, let's say you're learning the word 'friend'. There are many different words that are often used with the word 'friend', e.g. adjectives such as 'close', 'best', 'old' or verbs such as 'make' or 'lose'. It's generally a good idea to learn these words together, as our memory works well with such associations and also because some of the words that are common in English might seem strange in your native language(s) because they are different - learning these 'strange' uses will make your English much more natural-sounding and also help you understand what you read and hear better.

I'd recommend you keep a vocabulary notebook in which you record all of your work like this. It takes time and effort, but the vast majority of people who keep vocabulary notebooks and who study them learn much more effectively.

Good luck!

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team
