English in 10 Minutes: a new English conversation podcast in the LingQ library

Hi everyone,

I have been studying Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and a bit of French (and Latin!) on LingQ for a few years now. You may have seen me contributing in the forums before.

I have decided to create an English conversation podcast, focusing on people, places and their stories. The conversations are at native-level speed and are intended for intermediate and advanced learners. I have marked the episodes as Intermediate 2 but I think they can help all learners from Intermediate 1 to Advanced 2.

I have released three episodes to begin with and I will add a new episode each week. For now, I am sharing the episodes in the LingQ library, although the best way to get the episodes immediately is by subscribing to the podcast (links below). Also, if you visit the podcast website you get not just the transcription but a complete worksheet with questions and exercises. At the moment, the worksheets and transcriptions are free.

Happy listening!

Very good, Nick and Wendy!
I’ve listened only the first dialogue but I can recommend such interesting dialogues for all learners with the intermediate level.
I also remember, Wendy, several our conversations in Russian and I hope that you didn’t forget your Russian, did you?
By the way, it’s a little mistake by transcription in the first diaologue: instead ‘I lived there’ there ist ‘I loved there’.
But it’s only a triffle, and can do such slips of the pen in my lessons as well.
However, I like this course and I wish you new interesting dialogues and good luck!

Dear Evgueny, thank you for the kind feedback! And thank you for pointing out the mistake, I have corrected it now.

Next week’s episode will be about Russia so I hope you like it. It is a guest episode with my friend Lena who was born in Russia but moved to Canada when she was 10.

Thanks… I like it…!!!

Thanks to you too!

Hi Evgueny! This is Wendy. :slight_smile:
I greatly enjoyed our conversations in Russian. I’m afraid I have forgotten quite a bit of the language, as I have had other priorities lately. It looks like we might be visiting Russia next year, though, so I will have plenty of opportunities to practice again. Maybe Nick and I can even meet you in St. Petersburg!

Oh, it would be great!
Kind regards to you both!

Episode 7: Gorillas in the Congo
Nick and Wendy were lucky enough to see wild mountain gorillas in the Congo several years ago. In this episode they talk about this incredible experience and the impact it had on them.

Including the double episodes and the introduction episode, there is now about six hours of audio in total.

Our brand new episode is about the fascinating Sanità neighbourhood of Naples, Italy, and the Sacred Mile route that you can walk there that takes you underground to catacombs and cemeteries.
