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.

Hi every one
im new learnerplz guide for learn

Hello amjadhussain47,

Welcome! A lot of our users have learned a lot by using LearnEnglish by themselves. I'd suggest you try the Elementary Podcasts. Start with series 3 episode 1. First, listen to the one or two sections of the podcast, and then read the transcript (under Instructions & downloads) as you listen. Then do the exercises that correspond to the sections you've listened to.

You should choose some useful phrases from what you've listened to and imitate their pronunciation - repeat those words and phrases many times. Pronounce whole phrases, not just words, because the pronunciation of words in English changes according to context. Repeat these phrases until they're relatively easy to say.

Then try to use these phrases with English speakers that you meet in the library or wherever you go. This will help you learn to use them correctly and to remember them.
When you find some grammar that you want to learn more about, consult the grammar pages, but I think you will learn more in general by using the Elementary Podcasts.

Good luck!

Best wishes,
The LearnEnglish Team
