877. How to Learn Vocabuary | A Conversation with Clare Whitmell

This conversation is a preview of my Zoom workshop on Thurs 18 April 2024 at 10AM (UK time), as part of the Advanced English Summit. In my workshop I will be talking about how to really learn vocabulary, and not just stare at word lists. This is a conversation about the subject of the workshop, and summit organiser Clare Whitmell asks me questions about why vocabulary is important, why I love teaching it, common mistakes made by learners, ways of learning vocabulary more effectively, and some tools you can use. 👉 Sign up for the Advanced English Summit here [https://english-at-home.com/summit/] (https://english-at-home.com/summit/) - - - - - 👉 Episode page on teacherluke.co.uk [https://teacherluke.co.uk/2024/04/11/877-how-to-learn-vocabuary-a-conversation-with-clare-whitmell/] (https://teacherluke.co.uk/2024/04/11/877-how-to-learn-vocabuary-a-conversation-with-clare-whitmell/) Sign up to LEP Premium on Acast+ and add the premium episodes to a podcast app on your phone.

875. Aepyornis Island by HG Wells 🏝️🥚 (Learn English with a Short Story)

Learn English with another short story. I'll read the entire story to you, and then go through the text again explaining and clarifying the main events and plenty of vocabulary. This is a wonderful adventure story written by HG Wells, a very influential and imaginative English writer from the late 19th century. The story is full of vivid descriptive language, action, adventure and extraordinary moments. I hope it captures your imagination and lets the English come alive in memorable ways. The story starts after about 12 minutes. 📄 Get the PDF here 👉 https://teacherluke.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2024/03/875.-Aepyornis-Island-by-HG-Wells-Learn-English-with-a-Short-Story-Lukes-English-Podcast.pdf 🔗 Episode page 👉 https://teacherluke.co.uk/2024/04/01/875-aepyornis-island-by-hg-wells-learn-english-with-a-short-story/ Sign up to LEP Premium on Acast+ and add the premium episodes to a podcast app on your phone.

874. Walk & Talk: PARIS

Here is an episode in which I walk through the streets of Paris, rambling about a particular subject. This time the subject is Paris itself. This summer Paris is hosting the Olympic Games. The city will be filled with visitors. I am very curious to see how the city will handle this moment. Will it be a huge success? What will visitors think of the city? Will anyone suffer from the mysterious "Paris Syndrome"? Join me on my walk, follow my words, look out for vocab and consider using my questions for your own speaking practice.

873. Luke takes the MBTI Personality Test

The MBTI Personality Test (aka "16 Personalities") is a very well-known and widely used test which claims to be able to give you a "freakishly accurate" analysis of your personality type.

Includes plenty of expressions for describing personality traits, behaviour, ways of thinking and feeling and the subject of psychological testing. 👉 Episode page with notes, transcripts and links [https://teacherluke.co.uk/2024/03/18/873-luke-takes-the-mbti-personality-test] (https://teacherluke.co.uk/2024/03/18/873-luke-takes-the-mbti-personality-test) Sign up to LEP Premium on Acast+ and add the premium episodes to a podcast app on your phone.

In international diplomacy, "communication is everything". This is the main point of this conversation, in which I talk to my friend who works for the UK delegation at UNESCO in Paris. We discuss the work that UNESCO does, and the various communication challenges involved in working together with representatives from countries all around the world, including the collaborative writing of official documents where the use of a single comma can be debated for hours, and the meetings and conversations in which cultural sensitivity and good-will are essential elements for success.
