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 sir, I need a lot of idiom and phrase,one word of substitution,difficult word and opposite meaning of difficult word.where I get it.and Also want to know which time series five will declear. Why so much time taken by British council.British council have many Branch in different countries. and thousands number of students study in different British council does not face difficulty to collect different cultures, education, story about historical places, political idea and servicess etc. Please release series just like series 1.and only one series in one month and students does not wait for long time. Thank.

Hi ritesh46,

After a class with a teacher who can help you, I think a dictionary is probably the best resource for you. The Cambridge Dictionary is online, free and also has quite a lot of information on grammar, so I'd recommend you trying using it.

We appreciate you telling us how eager you are for the next series of Elementary Podcasts to be released. It takes quite a lot of work, and we have many other projects, but we also know that there are many people like you who are anxiously waiting for the next series. As soon as we have a good idea of when it may be released, we'll announce it, but I'm afraid for now I just can't say. This isn't because it's secret -- it's because we just don't know yet.

All the best,

dear Sir,
i have a question, what is the best passive voice sentence for below.

is this the best or this is wrong?

Hello lpajaya,

I think the singular form would be more appropriate as it is closer to the original:

A passport is needed to travel abroad.

However, this is a mechanical transformation. Which sentence is most appropriate depends on the context and intention of the speaker.


Best wishes,


The LearnEnglish Team

That's a good and emotional story. The teacher are also good in explaining. That's make me ensure understanding each words and enjoy. Happy to listen & learn.
