My mission is to help YOU speak English fluently.</p> <p> </p> <p>In this episode: </p> <ul> <li>We’ll be discussing some more about some of the most common phrasal verbs. Today, we’ll take a look at more useful and interesting phrasal verbs.</li> <li>After that, I’ll share with you a short Point of View lesson, to help you with grammar and to review the vocabulary you’ll be learning.</li> </ul> <p> </p> <p>Ok! Very good! Let’s get started!</p> <p>Remember, a phrasal verb is just a verb and a particle. For example, “look out.” I recommend you to check out the previous episodes about phrasal verbs.</p> <p> </p> <p>In these series of phrasal verbs, we see the most common phrasal verbs. Also, instead of learning all the different meanings of every phrasal verb, you just need to learn one or two of the most common meanings. </p> <p>Ok, let’s get started!</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Put off</strong></p> <p>Ah, this is one of my favorite ones. Sometimes, I’m guilty of using it too much. It means to procrastinate. In other words, it means to decide to do something not now, but in the future. For example:</p> <p>I need to put off the meeting. I am not prepared.<br /> They decided to put off the trip because it was raining.</p> <p>I always put off things I don’t like doing.</p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Put up with</strong> </p> <p>Sometimes, there are situations we don’t like, but we have to accept them, we have to put up with them. Or, we can say that we don’t want to tolerate a certain situation, we don’t want to put up with that situation. For example:</p> <p>Yes, he’s sometimes rude, but you have to put up with him because he’s your boss.</p> <p>I don’t have to put up with your bad behavior.</p> <p>I don’t want to put up with smoking at work anymore.<br /></p> <p>(END OF THE EXTRACT).<br /> Get the transcript in pdf <a href= "http://www.speakenglishpodcast.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/015-Common-English-Phrasal-Verbs-Examples-Sentences-and-Story.pdf"> <strong>here</strong>.</a></p> <p> </p> <h2>Resources:</h2> <ul> <li><a href= "http://traffic.libsyn.com/speakenglishpodcast/015_Common_English_Phrasal_Verbs_Examples_Sentences_and_Story.mp3"> Audio <strong>mp3</strong></a> (right click to save the audio)</li> <li><a href= "http://www.speakenglishpodcast.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/015-Common-English-Phrasal-Verbs-Examples-Sentences-and-Story.pdf"> Transcript Episode <strong>pdf</strong></a> (right click to save the transcript)</li> </ul> <h2 style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-size: 18pt;">Did you enjoy my podcast?</span><br /> <span style="font-size: 18pt;">Here’s Your NEXT STEP:</span></h2> <h2 style="text-align: center;"><strong><span style= "text-decoration: underline;"><span style= "color: #000080; text-decoration: underline;">THE FLUENCY COURSE</span></span><br /></strong></h2> <p style="text-align: center;"><span class=""><strong><a href= "https://fluencythroughstories.leadpages.co/sales-fluidez-97eurosenglish/"> <img src= "http://www.speakenglishpodcast.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/admin-ajax.php_-2-300x264.png" alt="Speak English Fluently course" width="208" height= "183" /><br /></a>Learn to SPEAK English Fluently! </strong> If you’ve been trying to learn English for years and <strong>you still can’t speak fluently</strong> … If you get nervous every time you are trying to say something in English … then this course is for you! <em class=""> </em></span></p> <div class="su-button-center" style="text-align: center;"> <span style="font-size: 18pt; color: #3366ff;"><strong><a class= "su-button su-button-style-default su-button-wide" style= "color: #3366ff;" href= "https://fluencythroughstories.leadpages.co/sales-fluidez-97eurosenglish/" target="_self">START HERE!</a></strong></span></div> <p> </p>]]></description>

These are the words we use when we speak or write.</p> <p>On the other hand, there’s the <strong>passive vocabulary</strong>. And these are all the words we understand when we read or listen.</p> <p>Let me make myself clear: You fully understand the meaning of these words; you don’t just guess their meaning when you read or listen. However, you can’t use them in a conversation.</p> <p>It’s complicated to use the passive vocabulary when you speak because understanding the words just isn’t enough. You’ll need to listen and read these words several times before they become part of your active vocabulary.</p> <p>(END OF THE EXTRACT).<br /> Get the transcript in pdf <a href= "http://www.speakenglishpodcast.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/014-Why-is-it-so-difficult-to-speak-English.pdf"> <strong>here</strong>.</a></p> <p> </p> <h2>Resources:</h2> <ul> <li><a href= "http://traffic.libsyn.com/speakenglishpodcast/014_Why_is_it_so_difficult_to_speak_English.mp3"> Audio <strong>mp3</strong></a> (right click to save the audio)</li> <li><a href= "http://www.speakenglishpodcast.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/014-Why-is-it-so-difficult-to-speak-English.pdf"> Transcript Episode <strong>pdf</strong></a> (right click to save the transcript)</li> </ul> <h2 style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-size: 18pt;">Did you enjoy my podcast?</span><br /> <span style="font-size: 18pt;">Here’s Your NEXT STEP:</span></h2> <h2 style="text-align: center;"><strong><span style= "text-decoration: underline;"><span style= "color: #000080; text-decoration: underline;">THE FLUENCY COURSE</span></span><br /></strong></h2> <p style="text-align: center;"><span class=""><strong><a href= "https://fluencythroughstories.leadpages.co/sales-fluidez-97eurosenglish/"> <img src= "http://www.speakenglishpodcast.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/admin-ajax.php_-2-300x264.png" alt="Speak English Fluently course" width="208" height= "183" /><br /></a>Learn to SPEAK English Fluently! </strong> If you’ve been trying to learn English for years and <strong>you still can’t speak fluently</strong> … If you get nervous every time you are trying to say something in English … then this course is for you! <em class=""> </em></span></p> <div class="su-button-center" style="text-align: center;"> <span style="font-size: 18pt; color: #3366ff;"><strong><a class= "su-button su-button-style-default su-button-wide" style= "color: #3366ff;" href= "https://fluencythroughstories.leadpages.co/sales-fluidez-97eurosenglish/" target="_self">START HERE!</a></strong></span></div> <p> </p>]]></description>

For example:</p> <p>If you heat water, it boils.<br /> If you heat ice, it melts.<br /> If it rains, the grass gets wet.</p> <p><strong>First Conditional<br /></strong>Here we talk about a probable result.

This means playing some English in the background while performing other tasks. In theory, you’re learning because the brain is always learning, no matter how.</p> <p>Interesting, huh? You just need to play some English while you’re cleaning, writing, surfing the Internet, etc.</p> <p>Well, although this approach may be appealing to many of you, here’s the bad news: It doesn’t work as a whole system for developing a complete fluency in English.</p> <p>The main drawback is that when we need to learn new content, our brain needs to pay attention, to be active.</p> <p>So, in an ideal world, we would be 100% focused all the time while listening: We’d pay attention to every tiny detail: vocabulary, pronunciation, intonation, etc.</p> <p>However, as you may already know, idyllic things are sometimes hard to achieve. If you need perfect conditions every time you listen: for example, feeling rested, motivated, in a quiet place; then you will never start listening.</p> <p>What you need is a compromise. It’s ok to lose concentration from time to time.</p> <p>(END OF THE EXTRACT).<br /> Get the transcript in pdf <a href= "http://cdn.speakenglishpodcast.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/012-Learning-English-By-Listening-In-The-Background.pdf"> <strong>here</strong></a>.</p> <h2>Resources:</h2> <ul> <li><a href= "http://traffic.libsyn.com/speakenglishpodcast/012-_Learning_English_By_Listening_In_The_Background.mp3"> Audio en <strong>mp3</strong></a> (right click to save the audio)</li> <li><a href= "http://cdn.speakenglishpodcast.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/012-Learning-English-By-Listening-In-The-Background.pdf"> Transcript Episode <strong>pdf</strong></a> (right click to save the transcript)</li> </ul> <h2 style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-size: 18pt;">Did you enjoy my podcast?</span><br /> <span style="font-size: 18pt;">Here’s Your NEXT STEP:</span></h2> <h2 style="text-align: center;"><strong><span style= "text-decoration: underline;"><span style= "color: #000080; text-decoration: underline;">THE FLUENCY COURSE</span></span><br /></strong></h2> <p style="text-align: center;"><span class=""><strong><a href= "https://fluencythroughstories.leadpages.co/sales-fluidez-97eurosenglish/"> <img src= "http://www.speakenglishpodcast.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/admin-ajax.php_-2-300x264.png" alt="Speak English Fluently course" width="208" height= "183" /><br /></a>Learn to SPEAK English Fluently! </strong> If you’ve been trying to learn English for years and <strong>you still can’t speak fluently</strong> … If you get nervous every time you are trying to say something in English … then this course is for you! <em class=""> </em></span></p> <div class="su-button-center" style="text-align: center;"> <span style="font-size: 18pt; color: #3366ff;"><strong><a class= "su-button su-button-style-default su-button-wide" style= "color: #3366ff;" href= "https://fluencythroughstories.leadpages.co/sales-fluidez-97eurosenglish/" target="_self">START HERE!</a></strong></span></div> <div class="su-button-center" style="text-align: center;">  </div>]]></description>

I’m Georgiana; founder of <a href= "http://www.speakenglishpodcast.com/">Speak<strong>English</strong>Podcast.com</a>. My mission is to help YOU speak English fluently.</p> <p>In this episode:</p> <ul> <li>I’m going to give you seven ideas you can use when you perform repeated listening.</li> <li>After that, I’m going to read a Point Of View story. It’ an excellent technique for improving your grammar.</li> </ul> <p>Ok, let’s get started with this new episode!</p> <p>As you may know, I always encourage students to listen on a daily basis. Listening is the best way to deeply learn the different sounds, words, and expressions you find in English. It’s how we learn our mother tongue.</p> <p>Also, it’s vital to understand that listening to an audio several times helps you consolidate what you learn.</p> <p>However, many students complain that they get bored. It’s normal. Our brain likes new and fresh content. In other words, we like the novelty.</p> <p>Here are some tricks, which will help you to keep your interest while you repeat the same audio material.</p> <ol> <li><strong>Try to guess what the speaker will say next</strong>: At first, it may seem difficult, but since you repeat the audio many times, it’s a stimulating game to play.</li> <li><strong>Focus on the pronunciation</strong> of each word, especially the words you find more difficult to pronounce. Try to notice the subtleties of each sound.</li> <li><strong>Concentrate on the intonation of each sentence</strong>. As opposed to the pronunciation of individual words, here you need to pay attention to the “musicality” of the sentence. The rhythm and the “music” of the phrase.</li> <li><strong>If you are listening to a questions & answer lesson</strong>, a technique I use in my courses, try to answer faster. You can also try to give a longer answer.</li> <li><strong>While you listen to the audio, imitate the narrator.</strong> Listen to the material and try your best to talk at the same time as the narrator. It may be hard, but it’s fun! This technique is called “shadowing” and requires a lot of concentration. It’s better if you pick an easy material.</li> </ol> <ol start="6"> <li><strong>Try to move while listening</strong>. You can walk, run, wash the dishes, etc. Doing a different activity while listening to the same audio adds some variety.</li> </ol> <ol start="7"> <li><strong>Listen with a friend</strong>. It’s always more entertaining to share a task and to discuss the main topic with a friend. You will definitely lose track of time.</li> </ol> <p>(END OF THE EXTRACT).

For example:</em></p> <p><em>I’m surprised how well I get along with my mother-in-law.</em></p> <p><em>The older and younger members get along well.</em></p> <p><em>I get along very well with foreign people.</em></p> <p>You can also use “get on” instead of “get along”. It’s exactly the same meaning. For example:</p> <p><em>I’m surprised how well I get on with my mother-in-law.</em></p> <p><em>The older and younger members get on well.</em></p> <p><em>I get on very well with foreign people.</em></p> </div> </div> </div> <p>(END OF THE EXTRACT).<br /> Get the transcript in pdf <a href= "http://cdn.speakenglishpodcast.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/008-Phrasal-Verbs-GET.pdf"> <strong>here</strong></a>.</p> <h2>Resources:</h2> <ul> <li><a href= "http://traffic.libsyn.com/speakenglishpodcast/SPN_008_Phrasal_Verbs_GET.mp3"> Audio en <strong>mp3</strong></a> (right click to save the audio)</li> <li><a href= "http://cdn.speakenglishpodcast.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/008-Phrasal-Verbs-GET.pdf"> Transcript Episode <strong>pdf</strong></a> (right click to save the transcript)</li> </ul> <h2 style="text-align: center;"><strong><span style= "text-decoration: underline;"><span style= "color: #000080; text-decoration: underline;"> </span></span></strong></h2> <h2 style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-size: 18pt;">Did you enjoy my podcast?</span><br /> <span style="font-size: 18pt;">Here’s Your NEXT STEP:</span></h2> <h2 style="text-align: center;"><strong><span style= "text-decoration: underline;"><span style= "color: #000080; text-decoration: underline;"><br /> THE FLUENCY COURSE</span></span><br /></strong></h2> <p style="text-align: center;"><span class=""><strong><a href= "https://fluencythroughstories.leadpages.co/sales-fluidez-97eurosenglish/"> <img src= "http://www.speakenglishpodcast.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/admin-ajax.php_-2-300x264.png" alt="Speak English Fluently course" width="208" height= "183" /><br /></a>Learn to SPEAK English Fluently! </strong> If you’ve been trying to learn English for years and <strong>you still can’t speak fluently</strong> … If you get nervous every time you are trying to say something in English … then this course is for you! <em class=""> </em></span></p> <div class="su-button-center" style="text-align: center;"> <span style="font-size: 18pt; color: #3366ff;"><strong><a class= "su-button su-button-style-default su-button-wide" style= "color: #3366ff;" href= "https://fluencythroughstories.leadpages.co/sales-fluidez-97eurosenglish/" target="_self">START HERE!</a></strong></span></div>]]></description>

Plateaus when learning English.</p> <p>Ok, so…what is a plateau? A plateau occurs when you stop your progress despite continuing to do “all the right things”. An interesting expression for this situation is: <strong>to hit a plateau.</strong> For example:</p> <p><em>It seems I hit a plateau, because I can’t see any progress with my English, and I’m still studying really hard!</em></p> <p>More literally, a plateau is a large flat area of land. This definition makes total sense, because if you are walking on a plateau, you are not going up or down. You stay at the same height.</p> <p>Plateaus are very common not only in learning a new language, but in other areas. For example, a very common one: losing weight. Imagine someone who has been following a diet and has lost some weight. But then, after two months, the lost weight stops, and it stops for a certain time. He or she keeps following the diet, but weight is the same.</p> <p>The main problem here is not the diet. It’s just that the body needs some time before starting losing weight again. It has to adapt to the new situation.</p> <p>(END OF THE EXTRACT).</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>Get the transcript in pdf <a href= "http://cdn.speakenglishpodcast.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/PLATEAUS-AS-PART-OF-THE-LEARNING-PROCESS.pdf"> <strong>here</strong></a>.</p> <h2>Resources:</h2> <ul> <li><a href= "http://traffic.libsyn.com/speakenglishpodcast/007Plateaus_As_Part_Of_The_Learning_Process.mp3"> Audio en <strong>mp3</strong></a> (right click to save the audio)</li> <li><a href= "http://cdn.speakenglishpodcast.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/PLATEAUS-AS-PART-OF-THE-LEARNING-PROCESS.pdf"> Transcript Episode <strong>pdf</strong></a> (right click to save the transcript)</li> </ul> <h2 style="text-align: center;"><span style= "font-size: 18pt;"><br /> Did you enjoy my podcast?</span><br /> <span style="font-size: 18pt;">Here’s Your NEXT STEP:</span></h2> <h2 style="text-align: center;"><strong><span style= "text-decoration: underline;"><span style= "color: #000080; text-decoration: underline;"><br /> THE FLUENCY COURSE</span></span><br /></strong></h2> <p style="text-align: center;"><span class=""><strong><a href= "https://fluencythroughstories.leadpages.co/sales-fluidez-97eurosenglish/"> <img src= "http://www.speakenglishpodcast.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/admin-ajax.php_-2-300x264.png" alt="Speak English Fluently course" width="208" height= "183" /><br /></a>Learn to SPEAK English Fluently! </strong> If you’ve been trying to learn English for years and <strong>you still can’t speak fluently</strong> … If you get nervous every time you are trying to say something in English … then this course is for you! <em class=""> </em></span></p> <div class="su-button-center" style="text-align: center;"> <span style="font-size: 18pt; color: #3366ff;"><strong><a class= "su-button su-button-style-default su-button-wide" style= "color: #3366ff;" href= "https://fluencythroughstories.leadpages.co/sales-fluidez-97eurosenglish/" target="_self">START HERE!</a></strong></span></div>]]></description>

As you may guess, listening and reading are input activities, and writing and speaking are output activities.</p> <p>In other words, when you’re listening or reading, you are being exposed to the language, and when you’re writing and speaking, you are “producing” the language.</p> <p>The traditional approach tells you that the more you write and speak, the better. That’s why language schools insist on writing a lot and “practicing” your speaking with other students, sometimes in groups.</p> <p>This seems reasonable, but it’s not effective. There’s a lot of research that points out the contrary: Basically, in order to develop your English, you need to do <strong>input activities</strong> most of the time.</p> <p>END OF THE EXTRACT).<br /> Get the transcript in pdf <a href= "http://cdn.speakenglishpodcast.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/005-Reading-Writing-Speaking-Listening.pdf"> <strong>here</strong></a>.</p> <h2>Resources:</h2> <ul> <li><a href= "http://traffic.libsyn.com/speakenglishpodcast/005_Reading_Writing_Speaking_Listening.mp3"> Audio en <strong>mp3</strong></a> (right click to save the audio)</li> <li><a href= "http://cdn.speakenglishpodcast.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/005-Reading-Writing-Speaking-Listening.pdf"> Transcript Episode <strong>pdf</strong></a> (right click to save the transcript)</li> </ul> <h2 style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-size: 18pt;">Did you enjoy my podcast?</span><br /> <span style="font-size: 18pt;">Here’s Your NEXT STEP:</span></h2> <h2 style="text-align: center;"><strong><span style= "text-decoration: underline;"><span style= "color: #000080; text-decoration: underline;">THE FLUENCY COURSE</span></span><br /></strong></h2> <p style="text-align: center;"><span class=""><strong><a href= "https://fluencythroughstories.leadpages.co/sales-fluidez-97eurosenglish/"> <img src= "http://www.speakenglishpodcast.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/admin-ajax.php_-2-300x264.png" alt="Speak English Fluently course" width="208" height= "183" /><br /></a>Learn to SPEAK English Fluently! </strong> If you’ve been trying to learn English for years and <strong>you still can’t speak fluently</strong> … If you get nervous every time you are trying to say something in English … then this course is for you! <em class=""> </em></span></p> <div class="su-button-center" style="text-align: center;"> <span style="font-size: 18pt; color: #3366ff;"><strong><a class= "su-button su-button-style-default su-button-wide" style= "color: #3366ff;" href= "https://fluencythroughstories.leadpages.co/sales-fluidez-97eurosenglish/" target="_self">START HERE!</a></strong></span></div>]]></description>

There are many studies, which suggest that there is a correlation between our level of the language and the hours we have been listening. In other words, the more you listen, the better. The more hours you spend listening, the more quickly you improve.</p> <p>Here’s an interesting question you might ask: “How many times do I have to listen to every piece of content?” Do I have to listen just one time? Or more than one time?</p> <p>What most students do is listen to certain content once or twice and then change to another content. The typical student thinks that the more variety, the better.</p> <p>Well, variety is good, but what you want is to consolidate what you listen, and the most effective way to achieve it, is through repetition.</p> <p>(END OF THE EXTRACT).<br /> Get the transcript in pdf <a href= "http://cdn.speakenglishpodcast.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/SPN-003-THE-IMPORTANCE-OF-REPEATED-LISTENING.pdf"> <strong>here</strong></a>.</p> <h2>Resources:</h2> <ul> <li><a href= "http://traffic.libsyn.com/speakenglishpodcast/Georgiana_-_Speak_English_Now_Podcast_-_00_-_The_importance_of_repeated_listening.mp3"> Audio <strong>mp3</strong></a> (right click to save the audio)</li> <li><a href= "http://cdn.speakenglishpodcast.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/SPN-003-THE-IMPORTANCE-OF-REPEATED-LISTENING.pdf"> Transcript Episode <strong>pdf</strong></a> (right click to save the transcript)</li> </ul> <h2 style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-size: 18pt;">Did you enjoy my podcast?</span><br /> <span style="font-size: 18pt;">Here’s Your NEXT STEP:</span></h2> <h2 style="text-align: center;"><strong><span style= "text-decoration: underline;"><span style= "color: #000080; text-decoration: underline;">THE FLUENCY COURSE</span></span><br /></strong></h2> <p style="text-align: center;"><span class=""><strong><a href= "https://fluencythroughstories.leadpages.co/sales-fluidez-97eurosenglish/"> <img src= "http://www.speakenglishpodcast.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/admin-ajax.php_-2-300x264.png" alt="Speak English Fluently course" width="208" height= "183" /><br /></a>Learn to SPEAK English Fluently! </strong> If you’ve been trying to learn English for years and <strong>you still can’t speak fluently</strong> … If you get nervous every time you are trying to say something in English … then this course is for you! <em class=""> </em></span></p> <div class="su-button-center" style="text-align: center;"> <span style="font-size: 18pt; color: #3366ff;"><strong><a class= "su-button su-button-style-default su-button-wide" style= "color: #3366ff;" href= "https://fluencythroughstories.leadpages.co/sales-fluidez-97eurosenglish/" target="_self">START HERE!</a></strong></span></div>]]></description>
