The English We SpeakPodcasts are a useful tool to learn and practise your English comfortably from home, when driving or even when you are exercising. When looking for a podcast, I tend to visit both the BBC Learn English or the British Council websites, as they usually include supplementary materials together with their podcasts, being their quality is very high.

Today I would like to draw your attention to The English We Speak, a series of podcasts published by the BBC which are described as follows:

Make the English you speak sound more natural with The English We Speak from Every week, we look at a different everyday English phrase or piece of slang in this fun three-minute programme.

As said before, every episode offers an expression explained in context and with examples. Would you like to know what “no-win situation” or “keep me posted” mean? Well this is your podcast. This series does not include transcripts as the English spoken is them is very easy to follow, both for intermediate and advanced students.

As most of you know, you can listen to these podcasts from a computer, smartphone or tablet.

Who hasn’t got 3 minutes to practise some English?
