The RealLife English Podcast
Here's what other people have to say about the Real Life English Podcasts: "I religiously listen to you guys on the way to work. When I have to stop at the traffic lights, people look at me thinking, "what's she up to?" Because they see me laughing and I'm by myself. Anyway, it's the best way to learn real everyday English." ... "I'm glad you guys don't follow the other podcasts which are mostly boring and too formal. I want to learn real daily English, not from books. You are head and shoulders above the rest. Oh yeahhhh." ... "The most effective way to boost your English. Fun and loaded with content. Learn English with the Real Life Guys the way it's actually used. No boring exercises." ... "RLE is the best way to learn English." ... "I'm majoring in English and admire your podcasts. I can say that this is the best way to improve your English, you must listen this!! real conversation and fun. :)"

We had the great pleasure of interviewing one of our favorite online teachers, the pronunciation master herself, Rachel from Rachel's English. If you don't know Rachel, she's been a huge inspiration to how we teach pronunciation here at RealLife.

In this conversation, we talk about a lot of awesome stuff, but here are a few of the highlights:

  • Rachel's story as an opera singer and how she started teaching pronunciation
  • The importance of learning to listen and imitate the rhythmic patterns of native speakers
  • Is it okay to practice your English with other non-native speakers and learners?
  • Using media and repetition of native speech samples to improve your pronunciation
