The RealLife English Podcast
Are you tired of boring, slow-speaking English lessons that don't teach you the way that natives really speak? Do you wanna learn how English is spoken in the real world? In this podcast, Ethan, Andrea, and Justin—your American and British Fluency Coaches will take you beyond the classroom and help you live, learn, and SPEAK English in the real world through fun, natural, conversational lessons that will rapidly teach you: - To understand fast-speaking natives - The vocabulary, phrasal verbs, idioms, and slang that you actually need to know - Native pronunciation and connected speech (how we natives cut and connect our words in a predictable way) - American and British English and their differences Above all, we'll help you develop the mindset, the method, and the mastery to live your English in the real world!

Natasha Broodie is an American communication specialist and founder of Life with the big E. She's a diplomat who previously worked with the United Nations. She is also a travel and language enthusiast and has lived in Russia and France where she taught Business English and noticed how non-native speakers interacted in multicultural business contexts. This experience led her to write her new book "Give Me Tea, Please" to help students politely navigate formal and informal conversations in English-speaking business environments. I loved how different this interview is from any of the Beyond Borders shows so far. Natasha brings a great energy.

She shares what she learned from studying a masters in International Relations and doing humanitarian work in western Africa. And why negotiation is such an important skill, even in learning English. We dive into what you need to do to really stand out in a job interview in English and how you can prepare, even if it is tomorrow! Natasha shares how she has learned to tolerate and become comfortable with rejection, which will definitely help any of you listening. We get into why you might be at risk of being left behind in this globalizing world. You are probably using the simple words YOU, WHAT, and WANT. Natasha tells you how to avoid making a big mistake with these words. Her advice for starting to learn a new language. So let's not waste anymore time getting into episode 18 of Beyond Borders!

In today's podcast episode, you'll get some more practice with your English idiomatic vocabulary by learning some animal idioms. Idioms are a type of figurative language which can be very confusing for English language learners. Now, there are tons of expressions that use animals and we use them all the time. If you stick around until the end, you won't be so confused when English speaking friends use them, or when you hear them when watching TV and movies. Plus, you'll have a fun new way of expressing yourself in English.

Luke Thompson is an ESL Teacher, Podcaster, and Stand-up Comedian. He's originally from England and currently lives in Paris. Luke has been helping learners practice their listening skills for over 10 years through his podcast. His webpage and podcast were voted #1 in the Best Blog category for the Macmillan Dictionaries Awards four times in a row. His goals are to engage the learners with authentic conversations that explore all different aspects of everyday life and bits of British culture.

He explains to me what it's like living in Paris, what a perfect day there might look like, and how he has overcome culture shock. We talk about what stand-up comedy, rock climbing, surfing, and swimming all have in common with learning English or another language. Why "I'm too old" is a bad excuse for not learning a language. How he finds time for all of his different work, hobbies, family, and passions, and how you can make more time for your own learning. What do do if you feel overwhelmed by not understanding something you are listening to. And so much more in Episode 17 of Beyond Borders, so let's dive right in.

Jennifer Kumar is an English conversation and cross-cultural coach. She lived in India for more than 10 years and even studied her masters degree there. Through her business Authentic Journeys, she helps Americans and Indians strengthen their business relationships through the development of mutual understanding of cultural and linguistic aspects.

Get ready for a really unique episode of Beyond Borders. You know, learning English is only partly about the actual language. The other huge part is learning about the culture. Of course, it can be beneficial to learn about American and British culture. However, English is the global language, so you need to be confident in your abilities to communicate with people from any cultural background. Today's interview with Jennifer will give you a ton of valuable tips to help you to be a diplomatic communicator, whether in business settings, or more friendly ones. We talk about some beautiful places in the USA that you have probably never heard of. We discuss why the questions you ask in English are probably not the same ones you would ask in your native country. Jennifer shares how to have good body language, so you can avoid uncomfortable situations whether in person or over a video call on zoom. She also tells you how you can feel more confident speaking on the phone, and what to do if you work receiving calls and someone tells you they want to speak with a native. And so, so much more in episode 16 of Beyond Borders!

If you're like most English learners, you've probably heard the word 'ass' used very frequently in English speaking in songs, movies, and TV series. But did you know that this word has a multitude of uses that mean completely different things? Although you should definitely be very careful with all uses of this word, often the use can in fact, be neutral or even positive. While it's important to emphasize that we do need to be careful with this word, this does not mean we should ignore it. If you close your mind to this important word, and all of its meanings, and never learn how native speakers use it, you will miss so much. Now, ladies and gents, episode #254 of the RealLife English Podcast…

Ladies and gentlemen. English learners, teachers, and world changers. My next guest is Tiffani. Tiffani, from speakenglishwithtiffani.com, is a teacher and artist from Maryland, US. One day, she left her job as a web designer at NASA to embark on an adventure to South Korea. She lived there for almost 10 years and fell in love with teaching English as a Second Language. Since founding the Speak English with Tiffani Academy, she's dedicated her time and energy to help learners from all around the world develop the confidence they need to speak and communicate in English. Through her Youtube Channel, podcast and app, she helps people to learn English in a simple and playful way.

 

This conversation was so much fun—I don't think I have ever laughed this much during an interview. Tiffani has such amazing energy and is really an incredible teacher. We cover lessons Tiffani learned growing up and from her parents: Where her diligence, creativity, discipline, and entrepreneurial spirit come from. She shared with me how she got up the courage to leave a comfortable job at NASA by getting in touch with her purpose to help more people.

Tiffani told me how she broke out of the intermediate level of Korean by stopping to learn grammar and start playing with the language. She told you how you can do the same, and most importantly, how you can gain confidence. We also touched on the lack of diversity on YouTube when it comes to English teachers, and why if you have ever thought of teaching English online, you should give it a go. And so, so much more. So let's not wait any longer to get into this inspiring and hilarious conversation with Tiffani, on episode 15 of Beyond Borders!

For those of you in Brazil, you will be no stranger to today's guest, but if you don't know him, you are in for a treat! Gavin Roy is from Ohio in the USA. He learned Portuguese to go to Brazil for the FIFA Soccer World Cup. On his YouTube channels: SmallAdvantages (with 2.7 million subscribers) and TadyGavin he teaches English through his own journey of learning Portuguese and Czech respectively.

I thoroughly enjoyed our conversation. I'm absolutely amazed by Gavin's motivation to accomplish so much, on top of running a business and raising children. I feel seriously inspired from this conversation. We discussed how he has gained mastery in Portuguese without ever living in Brazil. He explained how he creates a Brazilian life in Colorado, and even speaks exclusively to his son in Portuguese (both he and his wife are American). How visualization is a powerful tool for him to speak three different foreign languages. Why "I don't have time" is not a real excuse, and what you can do if you are someone who feels like they are always too busy. Gavin told me about the role of passion, dedication, and goals in being successful learning languages and guitar. Gavin considers himself a huge perfectionist, he explained how he has become comfortable with making mistakes when he learns a language. If you feel scared to start a conversation, you will get some great advice on how to reprogram your brain to get started speaking English or another language you want to learn. And tons and tons more insights! So get ready for a super fun and inspiring conversation with Gavin Roy on episode 14 of Beyond Borders!

On her YouTube channel, English with Veronika Mark, she shares the tips she applied on her own journey learning English for the past 6 years. Veronika speaks English and Chinese fluently, and also some French. She approaches a variety of topics, such as how you can keep motivated to learn English, where to find resources to enhance your learning experiences, and what to learn to go from intermediate to advanced.

 

I'm excited to bring you another story of success from an English learner. A crucial resource for Veronika to overcome her self-consciousness speaking English and communicate confidently was an English Speaking Club in Moscow, where she lives. She shared why this is so effective and how you can find one in your city. We discussed some of her essential routines, including bullet journaling, doing Yoga videos in English, and listening to podcasts and why it is so important that you create a language learning environment for yourself. She shared how to avoid getting stuck and continue expanding your knowledge of English once you are at an advanced level. She tells me about how it is different teaching her native language and teaching English. Her top piece of advice for learners is to have clear goals for your learning. She explains why.

Idahosa Ness is a polyglot, musician, and founder of The Mimic Method for learning languages. After traveling to Mexico at the age of 17 without knowing a word of Spanish, and struggling to connect with locals, he worked hard to perfect his accent by understanding the sonority of the language. He created The Mimic Method and used this approach to learn five other languages. He is oftentimes mistaken as a native speaker of the languages he has learned. Since then, he has helped lots of students to use principles of music to perfect their pronunciation in order to help them overcome the language barriers while building meaningful relationships in a foreign language.

 

Idahosa has created a truly revolutionary method for learning languages. It is probably the exact opposite of how you have been told to learn English your entire life. I truly recommend you listen to this episode until the end, If you can take some notes, and try at least one of his recommendations. Idahosa explains how he reactivates a language when he needs to start using it again. We talked about his unique approach for learning vocabulary, which is completely personalized to the learner's needs and goals. As well as why you don't need to worry about learning grammar. Idahosa says that awareness is foundational. It can help you to overcome fear, awkwardness, and frustration when speaking. He explains how. He discussed how the international phonetic alphabet can be a useful tool to use to create a map of what accurate speaking and listening look like. And he explained why it is never too late to start using this method. No matter where you are on your learning journey, you can use his Mimic Method and the tips you are about to hear to improve your English listening and speaking. That and so much more on Episode 12 of Beyond Borders!

Justin Murray is the Co-founder and CEO of RealLife English. He's originally from the Seattle area in Washington State in the US but has been living in Brazil for more than 10 years. Justin and his business partners (including yours truly) started RealLife English as a series of face-to-face events to give their students the opportunity to practice speaking English through real-life conversations. The business grew into a global community with two very successful Youtube channels, a podcast, and a recently launched app designed to help learners like you to live your English. Justin believes that every learner is on a journey to become the best version of themselves and English is a powerful tool to achieve that. He dreams and works hard towards creating a world beyond borders in which global citizens connect through a common language.

Justin is my co-founder and a friend of mine, so we had a pretty fascinating conversation if I do say so myself! He recommends a couple of mind-blowing books that can change your life. Meditation and journaling are two crucial and fundamental daily habits of his, so we talked about why they are powerful and how you can get started if you're curious. Justin shared what running competitively in high school and college taught him about life and leadership, and how his parents taught him the value of short term pain for long term gain. We discussed how RealLife English got started with events. If you are a teacher or a learner that might like to start an English-speaking group in your city, you can get some helpful advice here. Justin also shared some tips and resources that can help you if you have ever wanted to give up, be it on learning English or any project or endeavor. And we played a fun new game that will get you laughing. That and so much more coming up on episode 10 of Beyond Borders! Download the App Here

Christina then expands on that idea, while also relating it to her experience living in Spain.

When people ask us “How are you?”, we often get lazy and we use the same old replies such as “I'm good,” “I'm great,” AND especially “I’m fine.” But there are so many more great ways to describe how you're feeling if you want to be more specific about your emotions.

Emma, from mmmEnglish, is a YouTube Teacher, English Confidence Coach, and Entrepreneur based in Perth, Australia. She started her channel to help her former Vietnamese students get out of the classroom and develop real-world fluency and has now grown it to a community of over 4M subscribers. Emma is passionate about helping English learners build their confidence to use their English in the real world. She is also the co-founder of Hey Lady!, an online community for women from around the world to connect and practice their English in a safe environment.

I was so excited to have Emma on. It's actually not the first time that I have met her, and she is so much fun! We talked about what exactly real world English fluency is, and why it is not enough to just speak with natives. She told me about how she overcomes cross-cultural conflict in her Hey Lady! community and how learners can develop the skills to make meaningful connections through English. We also talked about how you can deal with stress and anxiety when it comes to speaking. We discussed why having a strong purpose for your learning, and anything else in life, is absolutely crucial. And as always we finished with a fun game where Emma and I tested our knowledge of each other's countries That and so much more coming up in episode 9 of Beyond Borders! Show notes here.

We spend one third of our lives sleeping and it's no wonder that there are so many great words we use instead of sleep in English. By learning them, you can be more specific about the way that you describe your sleep. We also use heaps of expressions related to sleep that can be confusing if you don't know them.

Leo Gomez, founder of Learn your English (.net), is an ESL teacher, trainer and entrepreneur. He has more than 20 years of teaching experience and has taught English in six different countries. Leo believes that individuals develop through reflection, experimentation and learning from their mistakes. Amazingly, he hasn't used the course book to teach in more than seven years. Leo emigrated from Brazil to Canada, where he started his business called Learn Your English. Through courses, masterclasses and two podcasts, Leo and his business partners work to build a language community for both instructors and learners to become more autonomous and effective.

 

I had a great time talking to Leo - at moments I felt so engrossed in the conversation that I forgot we were recording it. We have a lot in common. We started out discussing philosophy, journaling and meditation. Then we talked about Leo's journey to achieve native-level English. We also touched on the challenges to teaching English as a non-native in Canada, and how he overcame them. He shared all sorts of insights for English learners, like "the seven C's of English learning", and the role of purpose and learning a language. That's not all, Leo, also gave tips for teachers, and how you can stop depending on a textbook. We got into learner autonomy, why this is so important, and how teachers can promote it.

In today's podcast episode, we are talking about differences in schooling in the USA, UK and Australia. It's actually pretty shocking how different they are in these three English speaking countries. We will explain what the journey looks like through the schooling system in each country and important terms and vocabulary that you need to know related to this. You might find this especially helpful if you plan on studying abroad or applying to a university in an English-speaking country. Show notes here.

Shannon Kennedy, from eurolinguiste.com, is an American entrepreneur, content creator, language learner and musician based in California. She's a language expert and writer on various language learning platforms, such as Fluent in 3 Months and Drops, where she shares tips and challenges to help learners apply the concepts of minimalism to maximize their efficiency. Shannon is also a professional jazz musician and started studying European languages, such as Spanish, Italian and German while taking her Master's Degree in Musicology.

I just am absolutely blown away by Shannon's ability to study 5+ languages simultaneously on top of working, running her own project, and spending time with family. That said, this interview will give you tons of ideas for how you can improve your skills in English or start learning another language, even if you are very busy and have hardly any time. Shannon told me about some of her favorite tools and systems that she uses to organize her learning in all of her different languages. There's a lot here that I want to try applying to my own learning, and I'm sure you will, too. She discusses why motivation is not important, and what actually is really essential. Shannon, like myself, is an introvert, and we discussed tips that can help you speak languages even if you are shy or introverted. She shared how you can get the most out of your course book and other resources. We also talked about what fluency is. I found her answer pretty surprising and fascinating. So there is a ton of useful information in this interview—you may want to grab a pen and paper! Now ladies and gents, let's get into episode 7 of Beyond Borders. Show notes here.

“I don't have time for English.” “I have so many things to do.” “Work is busy.” “I have lots of university assignments.” “In my free time, I want to relax, not be thinking about English.” Do you ever say these things to yourself? Do you not have time to learn English? We understand how you feel. We’ve felt the same way too learning other languages and we’ve combated that with a few tricks to never let a day pass without learning and practicing the languages we learn. In this podcast lesson, we are going to give you some tips and some strategies to help you make English a part of your everyday life. Show notes here.

Christina Lorimer, christinalorimer.com, is an English instructor, materials writer, academic consultant, and entrepreneur. She is a specialist in English as a second language and has worked with NGOs and immigrant refugees for many years. She dedicates her work to support language learners in overcoming internal and systemic barriers to become confident English speakers.

We talked about her experience helping immigrants in California to learn English and overcome strong emotional barriers, and her advice that could help you overcome your own limits to speak. We discussed her feeling depressed the first time that she lived outside of the United States, and the importance of having a support network. Also why going to an English speaking country will not be the magic pill to help you speak fluently. It was interesting hearing her perspectives on culture shock and reverse culture shock when returning to the USA. Christina also gave advice for English teachers to stay relevant in 2021 and beyond.

Her language journey started with Spanish, but Christina also speaks Brazilian Portuguese fluently. Through her Youtube Channel, she teaches English in Portuguese and helps learners just like you with their dream of learning English in a simple and fun way. Show notes here.

Today we have a very special podcast where we take a trip down memory lane (remember the past) and talk about expressions that we used to say as kids. These are funny playground expressions, some of which you've probably heard in kid shows or in family movies. As you’ll see the vocabulary and the language can be quite interesting, even philosophical, in some of these. Don’t miss out! Show notes here.

Anna Khoma, @HannahKhoma on Instagram, is an English learner and teacher, accent coach, and vlogger from Chernivtsi, Ukraine. On her YouTube channel, English Fluency Journey, she shares her own journey to get to a native level of English, and her continued journey learning English. Anna started studying English seriously shortly after her son was born, about four years ago. At that point, she had never spoken English. Through hard work, passion, and dedication, she has been able to achieve the incredible results that you will hear shortly. But, as she says, English fluency is not a destination, it is a journey, and so she sees it as something that she will be learning her entire life. Show notes here.

Jack Askew, tofluency.com and teachingeslonline.com, is an online ESL/EFL teacher, a web designer, and blogger. In 2008 he was offered a promotion at the marketing company he was working in, but he decided to quit and pursue his dream of traveling to South America instead. Since then he has been teaching English online and he has also worked in schools in Spain and Ecuador. He is originally from Preston in the United Kingdom, but he currently lives in the USA with his wife and two children. On his To Fluency YouTube Channel he helps learners to break out of intermediate and finally take their English to the C1 level and beyond. And on Teaching ESL Online he helps teachers to start their own business teaching independently online. 

I will apologize ahead of time—I had some audio issues and so the quality is a little bit less than normal! But despite this, I highly urge you to listen to the whole episode because this was a dynamite conversation and there is great advice here for both English learners and teachers alike!

In this week's podcast, we're talking all about connected speech! You'll learn about how we often don’t pronounce some words, how we reduce others and how we change some sounds in order to flow more naturally with our speech. This is a really interesting topic that will not only allow you to understand native English better, but you can also use this in your everyday speech too. At the end, we put ourselves to the test with the classic “Betty Botter bought some butter“ tongue twister. So, stick till the end to check that out and give it a go yourself! Show notes here.

In this episode of the show I had an amazing conversation with Hadar Shemesh, an incredibly skilled and insightful accent and fluency coach from Israel. She moved to NYC when she was 21 to pursue acting, where she worked as a bartender at a Jazz club to support herself. According to her, she used to get criticized because of her strong Israeli accent, but acting helped her become a "diligent speech student." We start off talking about how we can often feel uncomfortable speaking a foreign language because we can't express our identity, and her experience of this while living in New York. We discuss why it is less important than you think to speak like a native, and much more important to discover how to speak like yourself. We cover extensively about native-speakerism and discrimination towards English learners and non-native teachers, and how you can overcome imposter syndrome and share your passion with the world. No matter where you are on your language learning journey, whether you are a non-native teacher or a student, you will get a lot out of this interview. So, let's jump in! Show notes here.

In this debut episode of the show, you are going to learn a ton and get a lot of inspiration from Vanessa. She's an American English teacher who has over 3 million subscribers on her Speak English with Vanessa YouTube channel. In this episode of Beyond Borders with Ethan she talks about her time living in France, where working as a nanny she taught English to the two children she was babysitting. She also tells us about why she deleted all the social media apps off of her phone, how her perspective changed moving abroad and how she prevents losing her French skills while living in the USA, her opinions and strategies on raising her two children, how resourcefulness, passion and small wins have made her successful, her opinions on whether you need to speak English with a native. Vanessa is an avid reader, so you will learn the books that she recommends most to English learners. And so much more… so listen now! Show notes here.

Ethan, Andrea and Ollie are back together in the virtual studio to discuss words used in English that come from other languages in English. These are called loanwords and are very common in everyday (and not so everyday) speech. You’re also probably using some of these loanwords in your native language too. An important aspect of using these words is knowing how to pronounce them, as a few of them have special sounds. Also get ready to have some laughs as Ollie impresses Andrea and Ethan with his French accent! Show notes here.

This week's podcast is all about idioms! Part of being fluent in the language is being able to speak with idiomatic expressions when they're appropriate. For example, when someone asks you "How are you?", don't always fall back to the old "I'm fine, and you?" Think of ways you can add variety to your language. For example, you could say "as right as rain". Today, Andrea and Olli teach you weather related idioms, and in doing so they touch on a cultural aspect that has to do with British people and the weather. Can you guess what it is? Show notes here.
