Listen to and watch our most popular English learning podcasts and videos in LearnEnglish Audio & Video! 

Available On

Improve your English listening skills

In LearnEnglish Audio & Video, you'll find the best podcasts and videos offered on the LearnEnglish website on topics such as UK food and culture, everyday life and famous stories and poems. Extra features such as a moving audioscript and pitch control have been added  in the app to help with listening and understanding the podcasts.

Audioscript, glossary and pitch control help you take control of your learning

Click any part of the audioscript to jump to that section or listen again. If you're finding the audio too fast, slow it down using the pitch control (iOS only). If you don't know a word, use the built-in glossary to see the definition. Test how much of the episode you've understood by answering the comprehension exercises.

Cool media player functions

Listen to the podcasts and watch the videos and read the highlighted audioscript or enter full screen video mode in landscape orientation. Switch easily between comprehension questions, the tapescript and glossary.

thank you team! I enjoy the Apps and the site so much! Bye

It's a nice app, however, I don't understand how I can transfer additional purchased modules from one Ipad or Iphone to another. I have several devices in my family, and I'd like to use the app on all of them, since several members of my family study English.

Hi Vitaleye!
Thanks for downloading the LearnEnglish Audio & Video app!
Follow these steps below to get your purchases on a second iOS device.

  2. On your second iOS device, make sure you are signed into the iTunes account you used in Step 1 (i.e. the account you used to make a purchase).

Thank you 

I don´t understand how use this site, someone can l help me? please

Hello frht!
Well, you should see this website as a library – just borrow whatever interests you! Our Elementary Podcasts are a good place to start. Listen to the podcasts, do the exercises, and talk to other learners about the topic. If you like the Podcasts, try our video series, Word on the Street next. If you want to work on grammar, take a look at our grammar section.
Don't forget that we also have a search box. Put a topic you're interested in into the box – like 'food' or 'the past simple' - and you'll get a list of pages about that topic.
We have a lot of different levels on the site, so don't worry if something is too hard – find something easier, and come back to it later. Just try to look at something every day!
Hope that helps,
Jeremy Bee
