I wanted to do something special to celebrate 100 episodes of the English with Kirsty podcast.

Some people do interviews, or talk about what they've learned whilst making the other 99 episodes – but my listeners aren't here to learn about podcasting! They want to learn English!

Therefore I decided to put together a resource to help people with their business English.

The pdf is a list of 100 resources to help you with your business English. The first 50 are free resources, mainly from my website, which have been sorted into 5categories that are relevant to using English at work. The second half includes 10 Facebook pages, 10 Twitter accounts, 10 blogs, 10 podcasts, and 10 Youtube channels that will help you to improve your language skills.

We know that in English words, the same group of letters can be pronounced in different ways. This is particularly true of place names. It's impossible to write a complete guide to place names because there are so many, but here is a quick guide to some words that are often mispronounced by tourists and even native speakers!

When we think about people who don’t enjoy taking part in conversations in another language, we often think of people who are nervous about speaking. However, for some people, speaking isn’t the problem – it’s listening. They worry that they won’t understand the other person well enough to continue the conversation.

If you feel like that, there are some tips in today’s podcast episode to help you.

Today I'm going to talk about a guest article that was written for my blog by Cara from Leo Listening. In the article, Cara talks about how you can make listening to English a habit, so it becomes part of your day, rather than something that you have to think about and make sure that you do.

You can find further information and the link to Cara's article here:

I love listening activities that I can do on my own. I enjoy listening to audio books or podcasts and I don't need other people around me to do these things.

If you're someone who is motivated more by social interaction, some of the more traditional ways of improving your listening skills might not seem that appealing.

I have good news for you! There are at least 10 ways in which taking part in conversations with teachers, language partners or English-speaking friends can help you to improve your listening skills.

Find out about them here, or you can read my guest article on the https://www.leo-listening.com/conversations-forgotten-listening-activity/Leo Listening blog.

take it with you

Iphone_trans Listening to podcasts on your mobile devices is extremely convenient -- and it's what makes the podcasting medium so powerful.

You can take your favorite shows and mixes with you anywhere, but to do so requires some quick and simple steps.

Let's walk you through that process together.
step 1:

Click the "Subscribe With iTunes" link in the page's sidebar:


This will require that you have the iTunes software on your computer.

(You can download iTunes here.)
step 2:

Now that you've subscribed to the podcast on iTunes, the feed will display in your "Podcasts" section on the left navigation bar.

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:

Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.


Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!

The beauty of this process is that now, every new episode of your subscribed podcasts will automatically sync to your device every time you plug it in and open iTunes. You can now take your favorite shows with you everywhere you go.
