The RealLife English Podcast (general)
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. :)"

Aww yeah! Are you ready to go BEYOND the boring traditional methods and learn English like the natives do--by USING it?!? 

Without a doubt, the most successful English learners I have met completely surround themselves with the language. They create an environment and lifestyle that mimics the experience one might have if she were living in an English speaking country. And without a doubt, this is a HUGE key to success with learning. It is moving past the ways you were told to learn the language, and making it a part of your everyday life that you don't even really have to think about. 

It is simple, it is fun, and although it is not always easy, it is extremely fulfilling. But in this episode, Justin and Ethan will make it more effortless with tons of new tips and resources. Are you ready? Then press play!
