[QualityTime-ESL] : "Your English" Podcasts The complete list is given below. "Your English" podcasts are free English lessons with oral drills that will improve your spoken English dramatically—because they are "interactive", i.e. they will make you speak English! Patterns are given followed by "listen and repeat", "listen and transform" or "listen and answer", i.e. short sentences/expressions to repeat/complete or questions to answer. Please note that doing these drills orally in real-time is far more difficult than doing them as written exercises. In some cases you repeat sentences or phrases and in others you have to complete or transform sentences after hearing a stimulus. You are given the right answer orally so you can easily check your progress.
