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.

Hi everybody,
It was pleasure to join Learn English 3weeks ago . I listened to all the series of elementary podcast and I am so excited and waiting for the next series

Hi there
I loved the CV podcast it's very useful for us

I like a lot these podcasts and I need to confess... I miss you!! When Tess, Ravi and Carolina come back?
I'm very curious to know what happened with Carolina.

When I listen Elementary Podcasts I remember once I visited Liverpool. I love British people.

Hello Erivelton,

We're happy to hear that you like Elementary Podcasts so much that you miss them! I'm also happy to tell you that we've started producing series 5, so sometime soon your question will be answered!

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team

In my age the year is such short time. Follow your dreams no mather what, that's something I am trying to teach my own children.

i'd like to say thx for this podcasts it's really helpful
i just want to know ravi's account on facebook i just wanna see his face as he talking .LOL

Hello yosuf samy,

Thanks for telling us that you enjoyed the podcasts! You'll be happy to know that we're currently working on series 5. I'm afraid it won't be ready until sometime in 2017, but you can be sure that there will be more to listen to.

I'm not sure if Ravi is around on our Facebook page, but I'd suggest taking a look there.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team

Hello elementary podcast team,
I love this series, its very interesting and fun to listen. I like the presentators Tess and Ravi , I like Adam and Jo too, but Tess and Ravi sounds more lively and fun.

I would like to give a suggestion. In series 1 and 2 there was one section called, Your turn, in which different British people talk or give their opinion about something or someone. They speak English more naturally. I think the podcast narrators like Tess, Ravi, Adam, Jo, Carolina and friends, take an effort to sound very clear and precise. I almost understand all of them without seeing transcript. but when listening to other native speakers, or movies, they talk a bit different and many times, at least for me its hard to understand even simpler sentences. 'Your turn' section gives the idea about how native speaker naturally speaks. i hope you will consider this while making next series.

Best wishes , Merry Christmas and happy new year to all elementary podcast team, Tess, Ravi, Adam ,Jo, rob, Carolina and friends. you people are doing great. Thanks.

Hello sarang_b,

Thanks very much for your feedback! We are working on series 5 and plan to release it sometime in 2017. I can't say anything very specific, but there will be some changes to the format that I think you and others will like, as we're trying to incorporate as many of our users' suggestions as we feasibly can.

Thanks again for your kind words!

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team
