Elementary Podcasts



Language level

Intermediate: B1


I can not find where is to do the test after finishing listening.

Hello clara97,

Do you mean the exercises? There is an exercise based on the podcast in tab 1 - click on the number 1 just to the right of While you listen and you'll see it. There are other exercises you can find by clcking on the other numbers.

By the way, after completing the exercise, you must click on the Finish button to see the correct answers.

Finally, I'll mention that you can also get the exercises in pdf form in the Support Pack, which you can download by clicking on Instructions & downloads (just below the audio).

hello sir would you be able to tell hope you wouldn't mind the sentence is
[Sweets are the uses of adversity] can you tell me in this which part of this sentence is subject and predicate

Hi aritoshpatel,

The subject is what a sentence about and the predicate is what is said about the subject. Therefore, in this sentence is "sweets" and the predicate is the rest of it.

Poor Carolina. She's so helpless here. This customer & employee of Post Office were really terrible. They should be more patient to her. I hate men who are so rude to women.

We should always be able to protect ourselves - idiots are everywere. I know this, because I have to work with a lot of different customers every day.

i do not complet the sentence. Please help me.How to improveing me English?

Hello biswajitbanik,

It's difficult for me to give you specific advice without knowing a little more about your English, but I can give you some general suggestions.  First of all, I'd suggest you explore the site.  Use the links at the top of the page to go to different sections and see what kinds of materials are available.  Get a feel for the level of difficulty of different sections so you can see what will be most useful to you at the moment.

Then start with something that is not too high a level. Many users find the Elementary Podcasts Series Three a good place to start.  Work through the episodes, and remember that you can use the transcript to help you, or to read and listen to at the same time after you have done the exercises. As you work, it's important to keep a vocabulary notebook. Organise it by topic ('work', 'family', 'food', etc.) and add words and phrases to it as you go through the material.  Test yourself regularly to see if you remember the words.

Finally, practise English every day, even if it's only for 10 minutes. You can study the vocabulary you've recorded, listen to an Elementary Podcasts episode again, or if you have a friend who is also learning English, practise speaking with them. You can also practise by yourself, just speaking English when you are alone at home or at work.  This kind of practice is great for developing fluency in speaking, so that when you need to use English in the 'real' world you are ready and confident.

I hope those suggestions are helpful.
