Welcome to Speak English Now Podcast. With your host Georgiana. The podcast that will help you to speak English fluently with no grammar and no textbooks. Hi, everybody! I'm Georgiana, your online English teacher, and founder of speakenglishpodcast.com My mission is to help you to speak English fluently. Today I'd like to introduce you to American history. After all, if you really want to consolidate your English, you'll have to learn more about American culture and society. And what better way to start than with George Washington the first president of the United States? George Washington was the Commander-in-Chief of the Continental First Army that fought the British when the country was not yet established. During the American Revolution, Washington led the colonial forces to victory over the British and was considered a national hero. He became the first president of the United States in 1789 in the first American elections. He was also elected for a second term in 1793. Therefore, he was the only president to win 100 percent of the electoral votes. In the United States, people celebrate George Washington's birthday on the third Monday in February. Like that people always have a day off even if his birthday falls during the weekend. Many people want the holiday to celebrate the birthday of another president, Abraham Lincoln, who was also born in February. Therefore, different U.S. states have renamed the day Presidents Day.     READ THE TEXT HERE: speakenglishpod.com  
Welcome to Speak English Now Podcast. With your host Georgiana. The podcast that will help you to speak English fluently with no grammar and no textbooks. Hi, everybody! I'm Georgiana, your online English teacher, and founder of speakenglishpodcast.com My mission is to help you to speak English fluently. You're probably wondering why it took me so long to publish a new episode. Well, I have a good excuse. Do you know what happened to me? I've been redecorating some rooms in my house. I've been planning this for over a year, and I must confess that I've been too optimistic. I really thought that changing the decor of the house would be as easy as buying new furniture, a new couch and painting the walls. However, as you can imagine, things were not that simple. I must confess that I love decorating, but this time I had too many options, I just couldn't make up my mind, and I was postponing because I had too many ideas. One of the quickest ways to refresh a room's appearance is to paint the walls. In theory, you should choose a color that complements your personality and fits your space. Although first I had to find out the color of the furniture to match the color of the walls. In general, I want the room to look clean but also modern and a little sophisticated. I also had to keep in mind that if I buy too much furniture, it will look too crowded, but if I didn't buy enough furniture, it would look empty and poor. So I had to find a balance. Size is also important because you could buy furniture that is too big or too small. Small furniture in a large room can look ridiculous though it's not a good idea to add big furniture in a room either. You can imagine how terrible it would look. And, of course, you have to stick to one style, as there are several options.   READ THE TEXT HERE: SpeakEnglishPod.com
Welcome to Speak English Now Podcast. With your host Georgiana. The podcast that will help you to speak English fluently with no grammar and no textbooks.  Hi, everybody! I'm Georgiana, your online English teacher, and founder of speakenglishpodcast.com My mission is to help you to speak English fluently. Today I'll focus again on the English pronunciation particularly on the vowels with some funny tongue twisters. I'm sure you remember that I made another episode about tongue twisters just recently. If you missed it just go to my website and listen to episode #083. And in the second part of this episode, you'll learn English grammar without studying any rules with an exclusive point of view story. Ok! Let's start! But first, I’ll remind you what a tongue twister is. It’s usually a sentence that is difficult to say fast because the words in the sentence have very similar sounds.  For example: "Annie ate eight Arctic apples."  Tongue twisters allow us to practice pronunciation and, most importantly, agility when producing sounds in the language. If you want to sound more like an American, it's vital to pronounce vowels correctly. The following tongue twisters will help you reduce your accent for the vowels "a," "e""o" and "u."  Like any other tongue twister, your goal is to recite as fast as possible and with few mistakes.  Okay. Now let's see some tongue twisters. I'll start saying each tongue twister slowly and then continue faster.  And while it's true that that at first, they can seem very difficult. Don't worry about it. Make sure to have the text in front of you because like that you can follow it better. 1. Excited executioner exercising his excising powers excessively.  2. Annie ate eight Arctic apples. 3. Mary Mac's mother's making Mary Mac marry me. My mother's making me marry Mary Mac. Will I always be so merry when Mary's taking care of me? Will I always be so merry when I marry Mary Mac? 4. Picky people pick Peter Pan Peanut-Butter,' tis the peanut-butter picky people pick! 5. I wish to wish, I dream to dream, I try to try, and I live to live, and I'd die to die, and I cry to cry, but I don't know why. 6. Near an ear, the nearer ear a nearly eerie ear.   READ the TEXT here: speakenglishpod.com

Hi everyone! I am Georgiana, founder of speakenglishpodcast.com. My mission is to help you to speak English fluently. Do you want to sound more like an English native speaker?  Well, today you’ll learn 6 new popular expressions in English related to food. After that, I’ll practice your speaking with a funny mini-story. Ok. Let’s learn some new idioms: There's a type of food that always makes us feel better because it reminds us of our childhood. That kind of food is called COMFORT FOOD. We eat comfort food because it comforts us. Although we tend to feel better after eating this type of food, it is not necessarily healthy food.  Example:  “After a tiring day, it’s so wonderful to cook some comfort food and read a good book.” And who doesn’t like eating cake? I just can’t say no to a piece of cake. And when something is extremely easy to do we say it’s a PIECE OF CAKE.  However, this expression doesn’t have anything to do with food. There’s another similar expression. Instead of “piece of cake” you could say “AS EASY AS PIE.” Examples: “I thought the test would be difficult, but it was a piece of cake.” “Compared to learning Japanese, learning English was as easy as pie.” But you know what? Sadly, there are times when YOU CAN’T HAVE YOUR CAKE AND EAT IT TOO. Yeah! You guessed right! This is another expression :) When someone says “you can’t have your cake and eat it too” they mean that you can't have two incompatible things at the same time. In other words, the cake cannot be eaten and saved for later. Example: “James works too hard to pay for that luxurious house. The irony here is that he never has any time to stay at home and enjoy it. I guess he can't have his cake and eat it too.”   READ THE TEXT HERE: speakenglishpod.com
Hello, everybody! I am Georgiana your English teacher and founder of SpeakEnglishPodcast.com. My mission is to help you speak English fluently. Speaking English is easier than it seems! You just have to use the right material and techniques. Hey, do you watch TV series to practice your English? Let’s talk about that. One of the most popular series of all time is...can you guess it? No, it’s not House of Cards. Let me give you a hint: Currently, it’s the most watched TV show on Netflix. Still, not a clue? Well, I’m talking about “Friends”. You know: Rachel and Ross, Monica and Chandler, Joey and Phoebe. Right?  Not only is “Friends” entertaining, but also it’s an excellent resource for improving your informal English by learning tons of phrasal verbs, and slang. In this episode, I’d like to talk about this TV show. By the way, I recently rewatched all the seasons in a row. That’s called binge-watching. And boy how I enjoyed it! Apparently, when you are binge-watching your favorite show, your brain is continually producing dopamine, so it becomes an addiction. The TV show has ten seasons, and the duration of each episode is 30 minutes. And I guess half an hour is more than enough. Besides, that makes it even more addictive. As the episodes are short, you end up watching 3 or 5 in a row. Some say that “Friends” is still one of the most popular television series of all time for a reason: it’s not just a TV show; it’s a way of life. And that may be true. Regardless of your age, gender and nationality you should watch this TV show. It’s the perfect excuse to learn English and learn new expressions and have fun!   READ THE TEXT here: speakenglishpod.com
Hello, everybody! I am Georgiana your English teacher and founder of SpeakEnglishPodcast.com. My mission is to help you speak English fluently. Speaking English is easier than it seems! You just have to use the right material and techniques. In this episode we're going to do something we've never done before. Today I’ll introduce you to the tongue twisters. I’ll explain later what a tongue twister actually is, and how it can help you with your English. And with a mini-story,you will improve your fluency in English by answering questions, like in a real conversation. So what are tongue twisters? A tongue twister can be a phrase or sentence that is hard to say fast, usually because of a sequence of nearly similar sounds. For example: “Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers.” What a mess! Right? I get that you feel intimidated but don’t worry. I’ll tell you how to use them in a bit. Tongue twisters are part of popular culture and have always been with us. This means that they are clearly useful in society. And although children find them entertaining, they are used by people who want to sound crystal clear when speaking, including actors, politicians, etc. One of the most interesting aspects of tongue twisters is that it allows us to practice pronunciation and above all agility when it comes to producing sounds in the language. Okay. Now let's see some tongue twisters. (END OF THE EXTRACT)   READ THE TEXT HERE: speakenglishpod.com
Hello, everybody! I am Georgiana your English teacher and founder of SpeakEnglishPodcast.com. My mission is to help you speak English fluently. Speaking English is easier than it seems! You just have to use the right material and techniques. Today I will talk about one of the wealthiest people in the world. His name is Warren Buffett. And you will practice your English speaking with a mini-story. Born in 1930 in Nebraska, Buffet is a fascinating character because of his inspiring story. As a child, Buffett showed interest in stocks. He was writing stockprices on the board in his father's office. His father was a stockbrokerand future congressman. And while nowadays most children play video games, Warren bought his first stock was at the age of 11 and filed his first taxes at age 13. Because like many children of the Great Depression, Buffett grew up to respect the value of money. He became so frugal that when he moved to New Yorkto attend business school, he lived at the YMCAto save money. “YMCA” is short for the Young Men's Christian Association. I also used the word “frugal” which refers to someone careful when using money or food. For example: a frugal lifestyle. a frugal meal of bread and soup. However, you can replace the word “frugal”with the words “economical” or “sparing.” Let’s continue. Buffett started working at the age of 13 as a paperboy delivering newspapers in the morning and afternoon. After graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree, he enrolled in ColumbiaSchool of Business, where he graduated with a Master of Science in Economics. Only five years after his graduation, Warren started Buffett Partnership Ltd.   READ THE TEXT HERE: SpeakEnglishpod.com

“Don’t stop me now. Cause I’m having a good time. I don’t wanna stop at all!” Hello, everybody! I am Georgiana your English teacher and founder of SpeakEnglishPodcast.com. My mission is to help you speak English fluently. Speaking English is easier than it seems! You just have to use the right material and techniques. Today I’m going to talk about a band named Queen and the legendary Freddie Mercury. And with a mini-story, you’re going to practice your speaking in English while learning fascinating facts about Freddie. Have you heard or a band named Queen? Of course, you have. I’m just kidding. :) And how much do you know about their singer and songwriter Freddie Mercury?  Some people believe that Mercury was British, but did you know that he was born in Zanzibar, September 1946? You probably guessed by now that his real name wasn’t Freddie Mercury. His birth name was Farrokh Bulsara. I was curious about how to pronounce his name, so I have done my research, though I’m still not sure I’m pronouncing it correctly. Did you know that Freddie was born with four extra teeth in the back of his mouth? He never fixed his teeth because he feared it would ruin his voice. In 1964 Freddie's family moved to England, and in 1966, he enrolled in Ealing College of Art to study graphic illustration. There he met Tim Staffell who introduced him to his band Smile. Watching Smile made Freddie realize that he really wanted to be in a band himself. Therefore, after he finished his diploma in graphic art and design, he joined a band called Ibex, playing the lead guitarist. Later on, he formed the band Queen in 1970 with guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor. He wrote numerous hits for Queen, including "Bohemian Rhapsody," "Somebody to Love," "Don't Stop Me Now," and "We Are the Champions." He also conducted a solo career and was a guest producer and musician for other artists.   READ THE FULL TEXT HERE: speakenglishpod.com
