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!

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

In this episode of the RealLife English podcast, Ethan and Andrea share some of their most fun and memorable stories traveling around the world. Here’s a little teaser: Ethan tells us about his experience being in ‘house arrest” in Thailand. Can you imagine Andrea, also in Thailand, putting on Muay Thai gloves and getting into a ring? Oh, and there’s also a time when Ethan got completely lost in Poland without being able to speak any Polish! Like us, you’re probably missing being able to travel, so sit back, relax, and come on this journey with us. Show notes here.

Lindsay, from All Ears English, is an American podcast host and producer, and entrepreneur with more than 15 years of experience teaching English as a Second language in Japan, Argentina, Guatemala, and the US. She believes in 'connection, not perfection' when it comes to learning English, and has inspired English language learners worldwide through her thriving podcast, All Ears English, which has been downloaded more than 200 million times!

This interview was so much fun! We started off talking about Lindsay's experiences living abroad, particularly in Japan. If you are a perfectionist, then this will be great for you because Lindsay shared some things that helped her to overcome her own perfectionism in language learning. We talked about why it is important to learn about the culture, not just the language—even if you don't plan to travel to another country. Lindsay and her colleagues are also IELTS experts! So if you plan to study for the exam, you will get some great tips here that can help you reach your goals. We finished with a fun new game where you can pick up some new advanced vocabulary. Download the App Here

You often ask us questions about how to reach the next level in your English. At the beginning, progress feels so fast, but then it becomes slower and slower, and you get stuck at the same level for a while, and you just don't know how to break through and get to the next one. In this podcast, we investigate why your English may not be improving as fast as you would like it to, and will give you practical advice on what you can do to get to the next level, no matter where you are on your journey right now.

Today we’re bringing you another Beyond Borders podcast special as we prepare our next interview with Lindsay McMahon from All Ears English. This week we’ve taken some of the most powerful fragments from previous shows with Anna from English Fluency Journey, Hadar from Accents Way, Christina Lorimer and Leo Gomez.  

You’re going to love this special episode where Anna tells us about the immense benefit of having a support network for your learning. Then, Hadar shares her opinion on the often conflicting relationship many have with their identity when learning a new language. You won’t wanna miss that! Christina then expands on that idea, while also relating it to her experience living in Spain. Finally comes Leo, a brilliant Brazilian English teacher and he shares his experience learning the language. Download the App Here

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. In this podcast we'll help you expand your vocabulary and learn a range of words to describe your emotions, thinking about them on a scale from low intensity to high intensity. Show notes here.

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.
