</p> <p>I'm Georgiana, founder of SpeakEnglishPodcast.com.
My mission is to help YOU to speak English fluently and confidently.</p> <ul> <li>In today's lesson, you'll learn how to talk about pets. And you're a dog or a cat owner you'll find out what to do before bringing them to the vet.</li> <li>And right after that, you'll practice your <strong>English</strong> <strong>speaking</strong> with a funny mini story.</li> </ul> <p>Before I start, I'd like to thank everyone who follows me on iTunes, YouTube, Facebook, Spotify, etc. Thank you very much for your support and all your positive reviews. Every time you share your honest opinion, you're in fact helping others to discover a more effective and enjoyable way of learning English.</p> <p>Do you have a <strong>pet</strong>? I'm proud to own a beautiful white female dog. When she was younger she used to be incredibly active and playful, but now, sadly, she's getting older, so she needs to see a <strong>vet</strong> more often than before.</p> <p>Whenever we wanna know more about pets we usually ask about their breed. The word "<strong>breed</strong>" has several meanings. For example, if I say that my dog is a White Swiss Shepherd, then I'm talking about her breed which reveals the type of dog she is and her origins. The breed of an animal indicates its average height, its type of coat and can even give us a little insight into its personality. We also use the word "breed" differently. For instance, people who raise animals are called <strong>breeders</strong>.</p> <p>Since we're talking about pets, I wanna point something out. Many students have asked me if they had to use the pronoun "it" when talking about animals. I just wanted to say that it's not always a rule you have to follow, if you already know the gender of the animal you can use "she" or "he" just like when you're talking about people.</p> <p>The connection between you and your pet is usually a special one and the more time you spend with them, the stronger the bond between the two becomes. You rejoice when you see them playing and running, but you also suffer when their health is at risk.</p> <p> </p> <p>Read the TEXT here: <a href= "https://SpeakEnglishPod.com">SpeakEnglishPod.com</a></p> <p> </p>]]></description>

My mission is to help YOU speak English fluently.</p> <ul> <li>In today’s episode, I’ll reveal to you the 7 secrets of the English <strong>pronunciation</strong>.</li> <li>Later you’ll practice your <strong>speaking</strong> with a funny <strong>mini story</strong>. The story is about a man who wants to speak English with a perfect accent.</li> </ul> <h2>SECRET #1: LISTEN TO YOURSELF!</h2> <p>Listening to your own <strong>pronunciation</strong> errors when you speak English can be difficult if not almost impossible to attain. What you’re usually doing is focusing on the conversation instead of the sounds you’re making. So, try to <strong>record yourself</strong> using your PC or smartphone. Do this <strong>only from time</strong> to time to observe the areas that need improvement. Many people hate their voice, and hearing themselves speak a foreign language for the first time will be difficult, but it’s a <strong>necessary step </strong>to develop a sense of self-awareness for improvement.</p> <h2>SECRET #2: SLOW DOWN!</h2> <p>I’ve noticed over the years that many English students think that speaking fluently equals speaking quickly. That’s an unfortunate misconception. <strong>When you talk too fast</strong>, you <strong>reinforce bad habits </strong>since you don’t have time to think about what you want to say next.

I would say it's very popular because everybody's excited about it, especially children.</p> <p>The word Halloween comes from an old English expression "All Hallows' Eve," and it means the day before All Saints' Day.</p> <p>Children of all ages really love Halloween because they can dress up in funny costumes and knock on their neighborhood doors shouting "Trick or Treat!". The neighbors usually give them candies.</p> <p>The meaning of the phrase "Trick or Treat" is interesting. In this context, "treat" means getting the candies, and "trick" means the consequence of not getting the candies. It's like an innocent threat children make. Of course, kids get really excited when they knock on stranger's doors in their neighborhood.</p> </li> </ul> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong>Did you enjoy my podcast?<br /> Here’s Your NEXT STEP:</strong></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong>Visit:</strong> <a href= "http://www.courses.speakenglishpod.com/"><strong>www.Courses.SpeakEnglishPod.com</strong></a></p> <p style="text-align: center;"> </p> </div> </div> </div>]]></description>

I would say it's very popular because everybody's excited about it, especially children.</p> <p>The word Halloween comes from an old English expression "All Hallows' Eve," and it means the day before All Saints' Day.</p> <p>Children of all ages really love Halloween because they can dress up in funny costumes and knock on their neighborhood doors shouting "Trick or Treat!". The neighbors usually give them candies.</p> <p>The meaning of the phrase "Trick or Treat" is interesting. In this context, "treat" means getting the candies, and "trick" means the consequence of not getting the candies. It's like an innocent threat children make. Of course, kids get really excited when they knock on stranger's doors in their neighborhood.</p> </li> </ul> <p style="text-align: center;">Did you enjoy my podcast?

My mission is to help YOU speak English fluently.</p> <p>In this episode:</p> <ul> <li>I'd like to talk about how speaking a different language can change your personality.</li> <li>After that, a cool mini-story to practice your English speaking.</li> <li> <div class="page" title="Page 1"> <div class="layoutArea"> <div class="column"> <p>Ok, let's get started!<br /> In this episode, I'd like to talk about how speaking a different language can change your personality.</p> <p>Yes, you heard me well! Studies show that depending on the language you speak; your personality can be affected.</p> <p>Researchers have found that speaking two or more languages could give you a split personality.</p> <p>They say that numerous speakers have completely unique identities in each of the languages they speak.<br /> Apparently, the way you speak impacts the way you think, and it influences everything from how you make decisions to how you perceive color.</p> </div> </div> <div class="layoutArea">Modern research shows that a language is much more than just communication. The way you speak affects the way you think.</div> </div> <div class="page" title="Page 2"> <div class="layoutArea"> <div class="page" title="Page 2"> <div class="layoutArea"> <div class="column"> <p>As you may know, I can speak several languages, besides English. When I talk in German, for example, I notice that the way I interact with people, the way I organize my ideas and my thoughts, my emotions. All of these become profoundly influenced by the language I'm speaking. Whenever I speak in German I become more rational.</p> <p>On the other hand, if I have a conversation in Spanish, I can observe myself behaving differently. It's like being a different person. In this case, I feel more relaxed, easy- going.</p> <p>To acquire a new self, you'll need to immerse yourself into the culture. You can achieve that by taking a trip abroad, watching movies, interact with a native speaker or listening to the Speak English Now podcast.</p> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </li> </ul> <p style="text-align: center;">(END OF THE EXTRACT).</p> <p style="text-align: center;"> </p> <p align="center"><strong>Did you enjoy my podcast?<br /> Here’s Your NEXT STEP</strong></p> <p align="center"><strong>Visit www.Courses.SpeakEnglishPod.com</strong></p>]]></description>

Studies show that depending on the language you speak; your personality can be affected.</p> <p>Researchers have found that speaking two or more languages could give you a split personality.</p> <p>They say that numerous speakers have completely unique identities in each of the languages they speak. Apparently, the way you speak impacts the way you think, and it influences everything from how you make decisions to how you perceive color.</p>   Modern research shows that a language is much more than just communication. The way you speak affects the way you think.       <p>As you may know, I can speak several languages, besides English. When I talk in German, for example, I notice that the way I interact with people, the way I organize my ideas and my thoughts, my emotions. All of these become profoundly influenced by the language I'm speaking. Whenever I speak in German I become more rational.</p> <p>On the other hand, if I have a conversation in Spanish, I can observe myself behaving differently. It's like being a different person. In this case, I feel more relaxed, easy- going.</p> <p>To acquire a new self, you'll need to immerse yourself into the culture. You can achieve that by taking a trip abroad, watching movies, interact with a native speaker or listening to the Speak English Now podcast.</p>      </li> </ul> <p style="text-align: center;">(END OF THE EXTRACT).</p> <p style="text-align: center;"> </p> <p align="center">Did you enjoy my podcast?

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.

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!

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>Try to move while listening. 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>Listen with a friend. 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)</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Did you enjoy my podcast?
