This week's podcast is about feeling unwell - the kind of things that you might say or hear in the office when people are saying that they don't feel well, and why. I thought this was topical for this time of year because a lot of colds and flu viruses are going around:

Sometimes students tell me that they want to sound like a native speaker. Today I share 10 things that you shouldn't say, even though some native speakers say them. WE're not talking about mistakes here, but things that don't sound good, are annoying, or that don't make a positive impression.

In this episode, I share things that I learned when I was the only non-native speaker in a team of German speakers.

Some lessons were related to language, whereas others had more to do with communication styles and interactions between members of the team and how they made me feel.

Overall, it was a positive experience, but it also helped me to grow. That's why I want to share my tips and observations with anyone who finds themselves in the same position – whether that's being the only team member who isn't a native English speaker, someone who's attending a meeting of native speakers, or just someone who's working in an environment in which you feel that the people around you have better language skills than you.

Today I will give you 7 ideas about what you can do to work on your English language skills while you are on holiday.

Being on holiday means that you don't follow many of your normal daily routines. When one of my students asked me what he could do to keep up with his English language practice while he was on holiday, I came up with 7 ideas. I've decided to share them here as well.

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.
