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!

Christina Lorimer,, 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.


We’re super excited to announce that we have publicly launched much anticipated RealLife English Podcast and Speaking App, which will give dedicated learners, just like you, the opportunity to listen to podcasts, not only with audio and transcripts, but also to speak English with other learners from around the world, at the touch of a button, for free.
