Let's continue with our story about Goldilocks and the three bears. You will recall that the bears went for a walk and while they were away, Goldilocks came into their house, ate the baby bear's breakfast, and broke his rocking chair. Now she is upstairs in the bears' bedroom, trying out the beds. As before, listen to this part of the story two tim…
 
Here's part 3 of my version of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Again I'll read the text two times and then break it into sentences or groups of sentences so you can practice repeating. When Goldilocks had eaten all she could hold, she burped happily and walked into the parlor. There she found three chairs. She sat in the largest chair first, but it…
 
The text of this podcast is from the Wikipedia article on malaria, a well-known and terrible tropical disease. For listeners to this podcast who are studying science, this will give you practice pronouncing typical scientific vocabulary. I’ll repeat the paragraph three times, and then break it into sentences or shorter phrases so you can practice r…
 
Here's part 2 of my version of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Again I'll read the text two times and then break it into sentences or groups of sentences so you can practice repeating. Meanwhile the bear family was sitting down to breakfast. Baby Bear tasted his porridge. “Too hot!” he exclaimed. Mama Bear looked at the steam coming up from her por…
 
You're probably familiar with the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Here's part one of my version. I'll read the beginning two times and then break it into sentences or groups of sentences so you can practice repeating. Have fun! If you need a translation, here's the link to DeepL. Once upon a time there was a little girl named Goldilocks. S…
 
I took Ollie for a walk in the dark earlier this evening. Some of our neighbors have Halloween displays in their yards. I learned that Ollie does NOT like zombies in the dark. Several times seeing human-like figures he started to growl and once I thought he was going to attack one of the zombies. It's good that he wants to protect me... But now bac…
 
I've been very busy with grandkids, with work (even though I'm 90% retired from our family business), and with getting ready for winter which will arrive soon enough. Our house is in a wooded area and the leaves are changing color and falling like rain every time the wind blows. But it's time for another podcast, and I have good news and bad news. …
 
When you say you "used to" do something (or "used to" be something), it means you did it (or "were" it) for a while in the past. For example: "In the past, Mary was a nurse, but now she's a doctor." Another way to say this is: "Mary used to be a nurse, but now she's a doctor." Let's practice: 1.I used to love coffee but now I prefer tea. 2.I used t…
 
In the past progressive tense, we talk about doing something when something else occurs. For example: "I was eating dinner when the President called me." The President's call interrupts the first action. 1. I was watching TV when the power failed. 2. I was watching TV when the lights went out. 3. I was listening to the radio when the electricity fa…
 
Here’s part three, and the last part, of phrasal verbs based on the verb to come. 51. Come in = arrive Look, there’s Susan! Her train must have come in early. 52.

This podcast has two parts. In the first part there are ten sentences. Each sentence has an error in it, a mistake. See if you can find the error. In the second part of the podcast the errors are corrected and you will have a chance to listen and repeat the corrected sentences. Here’s an example: Mr. Johnson drived his car to work yesterday. Did yo…
 
It's been a while since my last podcast. I've been busy! Today, for example, I was cutting some weeds in our back yard and I got stung twice by some sort of stinging insects. Yellow jackets, I think, although I'm not sure. That's the sort of adventure I could live without! I repaired the gear shifter on our snowblower yesterday, and today I replace…
 
The most common vowel sound in English is called "schwa". It is the sound we commonly use in unaccented syllables. In the international phonetic alphabet (IPA), the schwa sound is written with an upside down letter 'e' like this: /ə/ I think of it as being an 'uh' sound. By coincidence this sound is in the word "syllables": / ˈsɪləbəlz/ - in this w…
 
In this podcast you'll get more practice with the verb "to do". Grammar note: In English you cannot ask "Speak you French?" or "Have you a dog?" This form is possible in Spanish and French and German, to name three examples, but it is NOT correct in English. In English we use the verb "to do" to ask these questions. 1. Do you like pizza? I LOVE piz…
 
For fun: Here's a reading of a picture book that is perfect for beginners: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JeJxXeG-bLI In this podcast we'll introduce the days of the week, a few more verbs, and some numbers. 1.

Part One: phrasal verbs with leave 1. Please put the leftovers in the frig when you finish eating. If you leave them out, they’ll go bad.

Fortunately I was spotted by a passing helicopter and rescued.…
 
Let’s do some more practice with the verb “to be”, and with contractions. Remember: Listen, listen, listen! 1. We write: “I am hungry,” but we say: “I’m hungry.” [“I’m” is a contraction of “I am”] 2. He’s thirsty. [He is —> he’s] 3. She’s happy. [She is —> she’s] 4. You’re late! [You are —> you’re] 5. We’re tired. [We are —> we’re] 6. They’re at th…
 
If you are a total beginner, my advice is simple. Listen and listen and listen. The more you listen, the better your pronunciation and accent will be later. But listening comes first. And a warning: English spelling is NOT phonetic. If you try to read English before you listen, you will create problems for yourself. You will pronounce words incorre…
 
So many prepositions, so little time. Today let’s practice sentences with ON and IN. Nobody can live in New York on ten dollars a day. The generals planned their attack on Berlin.

In this podcast you'll practice with the words much and many, and when to use each one. The rules are simple: If you can count something, use many. For example: How many children does Mrs. Johnson have? Three, I think. Two boys and a girl. If it is non-countable, like water, sand, milk, etc., use much. For example: There isn't much gas left in the …
 
Here is some practice with ‘some’ and ‘any’. Note that ‘some’ is in positive statements and ‘any’ is in negative ones, and also usually in questions. I'll read all the sentences first. Just listen. Then I'll put in repeats. Listen to those and, as you feel comfortable, repeat along with me. Here we go. Lucky Bob has some friends. I don’t have any f…
 
The “aw” sound in English is usually written with either “aw” or “au”. Here are two examples: “August” — his birthday is in August. “Squawk” — the ducks quacked and the chickens squawked. Let’s practice. I like to paint. Mary likes to draw. The cat was drinking milk from a saucer. Michael is studying law at the university. When you cut wood with a …
 
This is a lesson about the pronunciation of some plurals in English, with a few numbers thrown in as a bonus. Listen: I have one cat. Mary has two cats. John only has one horse.
