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 everyone,

I am loving the Carolina's story, where can I listen more story like that please?

Thanks for these series, I am learning a lot.

Hello joesouza,

Have you listened to all four series? If so, I'm afraid that's all that is available right now, though you'll be happy to know that series 5 is in production and we plan to release it sometime next year.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team

hello sir can i have a request of series 1-4 transcript only compilation pdf download..thanks

Hello jmichael5,

You're welcome to download the transcripts (look under Download, just above the comments) on each page or to copy and paste them from the Transcript area into one document, but I'm afraid we don't have such a document, nor do we provide this kind of service.

Best wishes,
The LearnEnglish Team

thanks sr

Was a cool Series, and I am waitting for next one!!!

Good evening to everyone.
Unfortunately it was the last episode, but I'm happy because I follow all the series from 1 to 4. It was nice but I do a lot of work to learn and to go through all of them and I had learned a lot fof new word. Actually these all series had learned me to speak English as an intermediate level B1 or B2/
I'm not happy because they're finished now, but I feel really confident and proud because I have finished all series. It wasn't easy I had to work a lot because when I start my English it was really really bad, even I wasn't able to present myself.
But now as you can see my English is on intermediate level.
I enjoyed all of the series but I think the series first and second it was the series that I love more, maybe because it was a bit hard at the beginning or maybe because it was more interesting maybe it was more fanny or maybe due to the jokes there was really funny all of them,my favorite one it was that with the chicken with three legs I'm sure you remember.
I won't stop here because I aim to speak English really well so I decided start another course and my choice it was ..Big City Small World..
I want to finish with thanks. Thank you British Council, and thanks a lot to the team for all works and thank you because this web site could exist.

Hello Adriancatanescu,

Thank you for your lovely comment! It's great to know that we're helping people.

Series 5 will be published in the future, so you don't have to say goodbye to the podcasts entirely.

I think Big City Small World is a good choice and I hope you enjoy following the adventures of those characters.

Thanks again,


Best wishes,
