Elementary Podcasts

Elementary Podcasts are suitable for learners with different levels of English. Here are some ways to make them easier (if you have a lower level of English) or more difficult (if you have a higher level of English). You can choose one or two of these suggestions - you don't have to follow all of them!

Making it easier

  • Read all the exercises before you listen to the podcast.
  • Look up the words in the exercises that you don't know in a dictionary.
  • Play the podcast as many times as you need.
  • Play each part of the podcast separately.
  • Read the transcript after you have listened to the podcast.

Making it harder

  • Listen to the podcast before you read the exercises.
  • Only play the podcast once before answering the questions.
  • Play the whole podcast without a break.
  • Don't read the transcript.

Now, listen to the podcast and do the exercises.

Hello Natalia,

Yes, series 5 is currently in production. I'm afraid we still have a lot of work to do on it before we can release it, but there will be another series for sure!

In the meantime, you might want to check out Big City Small World or Word on the Street.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team

i like it

Please bring back Ravi and Tess... I always like the way they speak. Jo and Adam are not that intense and funny. Also they sometime talk slowly and lower voice.... But if you really don't want them back as main anchors then at least bring one lady anchor. It's always fun to hear from one guy and one girl instead of two guys. Also these podcasts are really short. In the next season please increase the length of the podcasts... please please please

Hello again The martian,

I'm afraid I can't give away any of the changes that we have planned for Series 5, but I can say that we are reading through all of the feedback people have left and that we are trying to incorporate it as best we can.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team

I really miss the 1st and 2nd podcasts. That type with Tess and Ravi was better.... Please return to that podcasts....

Hello The martian,

Thanks for your feedback. We've made some changes to the format for Series 5 in response to comments like yours and I hope that you will like them! Though it will still be some time before we release Series 5.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team

Good morning everybody, I really enjoyed all series from 1 to 4, I fell very well because I could finish all of them, they really helped me to progress, although when I watch the news or some documentaries on BBC World I can’t understand.

Hello harthyoman,

Thanks very much for your kind words! I'm happy to tell you that we are working on series 5 of Elementary Podcasts since there have been so many people like you who have enjoyed the previous series. I'm afraid that we don't yet know when they will be finished, but we will certainly announce the date when we know it.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team
