Not all adult language learners are looking for a course or a language trainer. Here are some tips for language learners who want to learn on their own:

In this episode, I'm talking about how learning and practicing your language skills along with other learners can help you to improve. I also share details of the new conversation groups that I'm starting for adults who want to improve their English.

It's easy to feel confident doing the things that we do all the time, but even as more experienced language learners, there are still things that we can do to try something new and push ourselves out of our comfort zones!

If you don't get the results you were expecting in a language test, it might not necessarily have something to do with your language skills. Some students struggle in language exams because they have difficulty with a certain type of question or task that is used to test language skills. In these cases, it often helps to develop strategies for dealing with this type of task, rather than just seeing it as proof that you struggle with that particular language skill.

In this episode I'm talking to Corinne Wilhem about:
* The differences she has noticed in terms of language and culture as someone from the UK who now lives in Germany.

Today the wise old owl is answering a question about why we can say “a reply”, but not “a feedback” or “an information”.

Don't forget that you can send your own questions about the English language or grammar to the wise old owl - here's the link to the show notes page:

This is more relevant for people who are studying English. I know a number of my podcast listeners are either studying English at university or taking part in English courses online or where they live. I know that others are working through materials on their own.

At school it's easy – we know exactly where we have to be and when. We know what we need to learn in each lesson because our teacher tells us. Learning as an adult requires more organisation and time planning, and if anyone would like some help with that, these tips will hopefully give you something to try.

Today I'm sharing something from my personal experience of learning, but I think it's important.

If you're learning for an exam, you have to know all the material. However, if you're listening to or reading materials to help you learn another language, you don't need to understand every single word. In fact, sometimes it's good when you don't, because this gives you the chance to learn new vocabulary or sentence structures that you haven't come across before.

Find out how I ended up learning whilst observing, and pushing my boundaries by listening to something I thought I wouldn't be able to understand.

Today I'd like to try something different. I've linked to an audio resource about a topic for listening practice, a blog post for reading practice, and some questions to think about.

Basically, I'd like to know what you think about working from home, and what your ideal office would look like. What is important to you? Do you like to be oaroundother people?

Of course the interviewer cares whether you have the knowledge and skills to do the job, but there are some other things that they might be asking themselves about you too. I talk about 10 possible questions here. You will probably never know how they would answer them, but you can influence them by coming across well and making a good impression in your interview.

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.
