In this episode I talk about how actively listening in your own language can help you to develop your listening skills in another language. I give three examples of people who didn't listen, and how not listening can have a negative impact on our conversations. I also explain how really listening to what the other person is saying can help you to have a much better conversation.

When we think about giving presentations, we usually think about face-to-face presentations. We are in the same room as the audience.
However, technology has now made it possible for us to deliver online presentations using videoconferencing software, webinars, podcasts, videos or live broadcasts.

This means that we can reach a far larger audience, or communicate with colleagues in different parts of the world, and there are some extra things that we need to consider. I talk about some of them in this episode.

It’s easily done. You’ve finished everything off and you’re rushing out of the office to start your well-earned break. Just one more thing – you need to put on the out of office reply so that people know when you’ll be back.
This is the problem. People are so often in a hurry when they do this task, that they make careless mistakes because they didn’t take the time to check the message. So you find out that people will be back in the office on 11nd April, 214th September or 11th Julyne.

You can use the contact form on the show notes page to request a pdf checklist of the points covered in this episode, so that you can make sure your out of office replies are as good as they can be!

Paying for training is definitely not necessary or possible for everyone. As a language learner, I found the best solution for me was a combination of free resources and paid training. When I saw the question "why should we pay for training when there is so much free material online?" in a Facebook group, I decided to write a few thoughts on the subject from my experiences as a language learner.

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:

Subscribe_with_itunes

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

(You can download iTunes here.)
step 2:
Itunes_ss

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.

Itunes_ss2

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.

Enjoy!
done!
