Sometimes in English, we don't pronounce all of the letters in a word. If you do pronounce them, it will sound wrong, and other people may not know what word you want to say.

Today we are looking at some examples using the letter L and some words in which you shouldn't pronounce the L sound.

Do you want to improve your English writing skills this year? Here are some questions to think about:

1. Is writing important to you?
2. What kind of things do you want or need to write?
3. What activities would help you to write more? You could start a blog/write a diary/join a Facebook group about one of your hobbies/do a writing course/get a penfriend.

There are also extra links on the show notes page, which can be found here:

One reason why people sometimes struggle with spoken English is that words aren't pronounced in the same way as they are written. You might recognise all the words in a sentence, but when that sentence is spoken, sounds disappear, others are merged together, and some words sound differently when they're spoken quickly. Here are five examples.

Today's episode is based on an article that I read. I talk about why it's important to focus on the value of your contributions, listen to others, and not feel that you have to speak as much as possible in order to be noticed.

So, you've identified what you want to improve in 2018 and how you're going to do it. Now it's time to think about the things that might prevent you from meeting your goals.

Time – people often say that they didn't do their English practice because they didn't have time. How are you going to make sure that you have enough time, either by setting aside time, or by doing English practice whilst you're doing something else?
Location – if you keep getting interrupted because you usually learn in a noisy place, is there somewhere else that you could go?
The list goes on.

Let me know if you've identified something that prevents you from learning, and what you're going to do about it. If you don't have a solution, maybe I can help you to come up with one!

So, you've identified what you want to improve in 2018. Now it's time to think about how you're going to do it!

If you want to speak with someone in English, who will it be, and when will you speak with them? Will it be online or in person?
If you want to read a book, which book will it be, how will you read it (hard copy/audio book/ebook), and when will you find the time?

Being clear about the details of your plan will help you to succeed.

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.
