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!

In this week's podcast, we're talking all about whether or not you SHOULD TRY to sound like a native and how this correlates with accent reduction, intelligibility, identity and your DEEPER PURPOSE for learning English. Is this a particular goal you have as part of your English language journey? Have you ever faced any prejudice for the accent that you have? Whatever your thoughts are on the subject, it's a really interesting one and so you'll enjoy listening to our discussion about it. 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.
