Here are some messages from me to you. This podcast is produced to help people to learn English as a foreign language. It is good listening practice and contains lessons on vocabulary and grammar for general English.

This episode is a chance for me to say hello to all my listeners around the world.

Every day, people from all over the world listen to and download my podcast. Some of them have been my students at The London School of English, but most of them, I have never met. In this podcast I’d like to say hello to you, and to answer some of the comments and questions you have emailed me. This is my chance to try and communicate to you, and ask you some questions.

Coming soon, podcasts about:

More Phrasal Verbs
Passive Verb Forms
British Weather
Narrative Tenses
Dr Who
…and many more!

    Hi Luke, it’s a good thing to have these podcasts split into more topics. Nevertheless, I personally enjoy very much your long podcasts too. The most important thing is just you keep doing your podcasts. Thanks. Marco (1299 days ago)
    Hi Luke
    My happiness level didn’t get up because you did not mentioned me from Germany when you listed where you are being listened to. Maybe I am the only one from Germany listening to you -smiley

    Hi Luke from Spain. I’m glad to have just found this page. I’ve been looking for a long time places like this one on internet, and i have to say, in my opinion, this is the best because you talk normally and no like in other places that talk very slowly as if were silly people. Thanks a lot (1410 days ago)

    Hello back!

    Listening to this episode for the first time — almost seven years after it’s been recorded.
    What a nice idea to get in touch with the listeners in this way!

    Hello, Luke! Just a quick word. I’m new to your podcast. I started listening to it a couple of weeks ago from the very beginning and intend to listen to all episodes. I heard about it from a colleague. I work at a bank. I believe to have found the Real British English here. I like it very much. Cheers! Aleksei from Ukraine.

    In this podcast you said:”I am always thinking”. As an English teacher I am always fighting against the wrong usage of the progressive forms. German students love the progressive form, eg. they say: “I am living in….” My answer then is: “And where do you normally live?”
    We try to teach them that everything you normally do has to be said in the simple present. Signal words for the simple present are the adverbs of frequency like always, often, never, every day and so on. I know that you can say “I am always thinking”, but maybe you should explain it.
