Lindsay McMahon, Co-host, All Ears English

Hi everyone! I want to help you finally move beyond your current level of English.

I have been teaching English as a Second Language (ESL) for more than 10 years.

I have taught in Japan, Argentina, Guatemala, New York City, and here in Boston. In my free time, I like to travel and explore, work on my Spanish, and meet new people.

Come get to know me on the All Ears English Podcast and the IELTS Energy Podcast! See you there.


Michelle Kaplan, “The New York Radio Girl”

MA TESOL, BA Arts/Theatre

Michelle Kaplan, All Ears English Co-hostI am originally from Washington, D.C., but moved to New York nearly five years ago.

I received my MA in TESOL at The New School in 2014 and have been working in the field ever since. I studied theatre in college and worked in broadcast and radio for several years.

I believe learning should be more than just sitting down and studying. I feel that if students are motivated by a fun classroom atmosphere and interesting subject matter, they will learn the language in a more effective way. I enjoy teaching pronunciation and have a special passion for teaching English through music, television, and movies.
Travel is a huge passion of mine. I also love singing, writing and playing music, and comedy. I have even been known to bring in my guitar and sing in the classroom to create a lesson. Thanks for listening!

    HHello Girls! I first met you today, listening a podcast from English Funcast. I was driving to work, and thank God I bumped to you.
    I have to admit, The English spoken by you sounds like the most accurate music, I mean, exactly the kind a pronunciation that I love! Therefore, I became a big fan at the first sight!
    During this podcast you spoke about the abroad experiences, around Argentina, Brazil even Japan, that by the way, is very helpful cause you can compare the differences between the people and their preferences regarding language learning.
    So, Congratulations for the well done job, and for sure I´ll comment and recommend you to my English network.
    By the way, I could not stop talking, You´re a pretty beautiful!!!!
    Oh! If you have any questions about Brazil, or São Paulo, feel free to ask… I’ll be happy to answer.

    See you on All Ears English Podcast.
    Rogério Nazario
    São Paulo, Brazil

  • Hi Rogerio

    Thanks for your comment and we are glad that you found the podcast! Please let us know if you have episode topic requests or any feedback. We are happy to have you as a listener! Welcome!


  • Hi, this is yongki kim in Korea.

    In these days, I always listen to your potcast on my way home.

    It’s very useful to learn about American culture and foriegn contry.

    Also how and what think the women like you.

    Just I want that every conversation would be more longer.

    It’s about 4~5minutes.

    So wish your answer quickly.

    Very very thank you!!

  • Hi Yongki

    Thank you for your comment. We are glad that you like the podcast! Our episodes are short and that is by design! We believe that if you take just a few minutes to focus on English each day, you will have more improvement than if you studied for 1-2 hours just a few times each week. This is a new way of learning and we will think that it will work for you! We want you to make English a part of your everyday life so you can feel comfortable with it.

    If you want to go deeper with the lessons, you can use the premium transcripts (www.allearsenglish.com/conversations) and listen to the same episode 3-4 times while reading the transcript to understand the vocabulary words and phrases.

    Thanks again for listening!


  • Bruno Santana

    Hello! I am a new listener of your PODCAST and I am enjoying it very much!
    How do I insert my e-mail in your list so than you will write me, as you say in the end of your PODCASTs?

    Thank you! Congratulations for your work! It helps us to improve our english!


  • Hi Bruno

    Thank you for your note! You can get on our list at http://www.allearsenglish.com/win

  • Marie-France

    You go girls !!
    Congratulations on your podcasts, great job ! a wonderful creative approach to ESL.
    I’m a new subscriber and can’t wait to hear new posts. I’ll stay tuned.
    Warmest reagards,

  • Hi Marie- France

    Thanks so much for your message! Welcome to our podcast!

  • saman

    Hello girls…
    At first I’d like to say that It has been a great opportunity for me to get to know with you and your great accent(I love american accent)…keep doing great …But I have a suggestion if you don’t mind.I think you need to make your podcast longer cuz I can see most of them are around 5 min and second wouldn’t it be nicer if you let your listineres suggest for next topic that you are going to make??

  • Hi Saman

    Thanks for your comment! We are happy that you like the podcast.

    I want to respond to your feedback. Our episodes our short by design. That is because we want you to listen every day (4 times per week) and we want you to listen more than once to each episode to improve your comprehension (try to get 10% more each time). We think the short, regular method is more effective than longer episodes once per week.

    What do you think?

    And yes! We like to create episodes based on listener feedback! What do you want to learn? Please send us an email at [email protected]

    Thanks so much!


  • Fabio La Rizza

    Hi girls congrats for your podcast! I find it really useful and funny so I think you’re doing a great job. When I’m listening to your podcasts everything sounds so natural and understandable to me so why when it comes to movies o tv series eveything starts to be hard to understand?! It is because different accents, presence of idioms, phrasal verbs or what?? Thank you !


  • Hi Fabio

    How are you? Thanks for your message.

    We are really happy to hear that the podcast is easy for you to understand. Sometimes movies are much harder and actors use different accents that are not clear. Also you have music, distracting noises, etc. in a movie, right?

    I think you should continue listening to the podcast but then also try to watch a short movie segment each week- you can check episode 64 for advice on how to understand movies ok?

    Thanks again for listening!


  • Constanza Riquelme

    Hello Girls ! I am really glad to hear you everyday in the morning when i going to the work. Yours conversation are very funny and simple to hear. Chiefly know about a conversation of native persons…..what phrases are right and which one are out. Lindsay and Gabby, i am very greatful for your friendly podscat and how you make my learning of english become easier.

    Regards from Chile!!!!

  • Thanks so much! We are happy that you are a listener of AEE! Welcome!

  • Muscle Chan

    Hi, Ladies, I have listened your podcast for a week which really gives me a motivation to learn English more seriously. Your advice is very useful, especially listening your podcast when I wake up every morning. Looking forward to your updates. Thanks

  • Hi @musclechan:disqus how are you? Thanks for your message! Glad to hear that you are finding the podcast helpful! Keep listening and we will help you bring your level from intermediate to advanced! Have a great day!

  • nacho

    Can you say in English: I love to travel …? or it´s much better: I love travelling?
    love or like* …-ing!

  • Hi @nacho- thanks for your question. Basically you can say both “I like to travel” and “I like traveling” and the same is true with “I love to travel” and “I love traveling” There are very subtle differences between the two but the differences are not that important. Use either one and you will be fine! By the way, do you like traveling??

  • Tatsuo

    Hello Lindsay & Gabby,

    Congratulations on your 100th episode!!!

    I started from episode 29 and your podcast immediately became my favorite. Then I went back to the first episode and have been waiting for the episode 100 to say congrats 🙂
    My favorite episode is about the song “Happy” and it is good to hear about your experiences in Japan. Also, I guess it is a great idea to invite guests to your podcast to expand our English experiences.

    BTW, I tried to download the 100 phrases, but it seems it links to the 10 ways of learning e-book… It would be nice if you could check the download page.

    Best Regards,
    Tatsuo from Yokohama Japan.

  • Hi Tatsuo

    Thanks for your comment. We are really happy that you like the podcast! I am really sorry that you are having trouble accessing the 100 phrases eBook. We are having technical problems with that and we will do our best to get that resolved as soon as possible.

    Thanks again for being a listener of All Ears English!

    I would appreciate your work. I have been learning English with Ajhoge for around 4 years. I have heard about your website through Ajhoge weekly show. Any way you are really doing good job. I have some inquiries: at first I have subscribed to get free copy of ebook but yet i didnt get any thing through my email. Secondly what is the difference between free podcast and English Premium Material. Do you think it is a must to buy these material to advance my language?

    Thank you.

  • Andrew

    Hi girls,

    The other day stumbled upon your podcast. Great job! But I have a tip for you:


    It’s a special tag, containing text info, which is embedded in every podcast. For you those are just empty for now. There you can add info, which is difficult to convey by just speaking, for example spelling of the words. Or you can list there useful expressions you use during podcast. Anyway, please pay attention, it’s a very nice and useful thing to have in your podcast! Email me if I can help you with any clarification.


  • @Andrew- thanks for your suggestion. We will consider it!

  • Guest

I am in awe over how popular your podcast is and what incredible impact you are making with helping others learn English. I am struggling to even launch my website. I look forward to learning more about your amazing successes via social media. From someone in the start-up phase who appreciated a jolt of inspiration – Keri with Speech Party

    i’ll miss your podcast that you are two of you Gabi and Linsi !!!!

  • Eugene Kim

    Dear Lindsay
    I’m a huge fan of AEE.
    And I’d like to say your podcast is very helpful for my english studying.

    Recently I saw Jimmy Buffett’s quotation,
    “Fun is about as good a habit as there is.”

    I don’t know the meaning of this sentence
    and go so far as to suspect that it’s wrong grammatically.

    Would you help me solve this problem.

    Thank you in advance

    a sincere fan in S. Korea

  • @disqus_vn1aOSGdQi:disqus Hi there and thanks for listening to AEE! I am not exactly sure what he means by this but maybe he means that happiness and fun can become a habit and it’s a better habit than other destructive habits. Does that make sense? Please share AEE with your friends!!

  • John Carrillo

    Hi Guys,

    Well, as first thank You very much for your podcast it is really useful. Every week I am checking and downloading each new episode. I like so much the way you have of explain those doubts that make us or in my case make me so crazy with the grammar. I have to admit I like the American English more than the British English in many aspects, especially into the areas as speaking and listening and what about phrase and verbs? Anyway I am working everyday to improving it. Could you try to explain more about phrase and verbs, prepositions and pronunciation? Please.

    Kind regards from Madrid, tomorrow might be from whatever place on the world.

  • @mhemho:disqus Thanks for your message. We are glad to hear that you love the AEE podcast! Yes we will try to feature more phrasal verbs and pronunciation lessons on the podcast. Thanks again!

  • Damir Nišić

  • is

    Hi girls, I just want to let you Know that I have been listening you since September last year, at firts I felt as I was finding an inspirational place to learn and enjoy doint it without the ussual conventions of a regular ESL program. You were the answer to my prayer, I was so inspired and motivates as I was falling in love. But lately, dipite I am bounding with you all, I have a feeling that something is ending or daying out. Is like everything is repetitive and predictible. As if the magic would have gone. At the very beginning I could wait until the other day to listen to you, I lived into a huge state of anxiety until the next episode. But now I am reashing a plateau with you guys. I hope you both could reinvent the show. I want to feel again the initial enthusiasm, the passion, the eager to learn with you. Until then, I will be skip some of your episodes. Regars. Me

  • @is- thanks for letting us know your thoughts. Can you let us know 5 episode topic requests that you can suggest? Sometimes we need ideas from our audience! thanks

  • Elaine Zhu

    Hi Michelle, I love your voice and pronunciation from the first time I listened to you. I’m wanna to know how can I learn pronunciation from you, could you help me? Tks a lot !

  • Baltazar

    Hey girls, thank you, a folk from the office recommended your pod cast and now I can say I-m a huge fan you really nailed connecting people with the interest about improve English communication skills. Keep the good work!!! and thank you!

  • Olga

    Hi girls! It would be interesting to hear from you stories about yours friends who live in America, but originally from other countries and what cultural ”feature” have you learned ? what was really unusual / exciting (traditions, food, etc). Maybe few stories about your travellings to another countries. Thank you in advance! Best regards from Ukraine, Olga.

  • soongjae

    How is it going, Lindsay, Michelle, and Jessica?

    I’m an avid listener of All Ears English and IELTS Energy Podcast, I listen to your shows every day not only to improve my English skills, but also the energy I get from listening to you guys is really motivating.

    I see that you guys take requests and make an effort to create lessons around them, so I want to make a request myself.

    Sometimes I have a hard time keeping the conversation going with people and I think it’s mostly because I have little to say when it comes to replying to others other than something like, “Oh, that’s great!”, or “Wow, really? I didn’t know that. Interesting!”, etc. I mean, I do ask follow-up questions, but it doesn’t always work.

    But when I listen to Lindsay interacting with guests on the show, she seems like she’s really cut out for the job – she seems to always have something to say. And just in general even, on every episode of A.E.G., Lindsay is really smooth in coming up with things to say, and I’d desperately like to have skills like hers. So to sum that up, “How to talk like Lindsay??”

    P.S. I know that I should have my own style of speaking and play to my strengths, but I think it happens more often than not that while imitating those who you’d like to be, you run into your own true strong point!

  • Mayank Jandyal

    Hi Lindsay & Michelle.

    Thanks for such nice podcasts. These are really helpful for non native speakers like me in improving their English speaking & listening skills.

    I would appreciate if you could create a podcast on ‘Asking for an apology’ or ‘asking someone for repeating what they just said’. Also if you could tell some major differences between the British & the American English. I am form India & we are taught British English in schools. I found pronunciation of some words was different in British & American English. Also some phrases which we use in British English sometimes sound weird to native Americans.

    Looking forward to ur reply.


  • Naomi

    I really enjoy this podcast! Thank you Lindsay and Michelle♡
    I want to know the difference among the other , another , others!
    Could you pick up this subject in your episode?

  • @Naomi- thanks. Good question! We will try to answer it soon

  • Jara Zbrna

    Hello. I’m listening your podcast for couple of weeks. It’s great. I’m from the Czech Republic and I had a chance to be in USA for couple of times, it was perfect every time! I simply love american English and I’m glad that I can hear a common conversation every day and what’s more, I can learn new things from you 😉 So thank you very much! Should I have any topics for you, it would be a phrase ‘Have you ever been TO London?’ Why it’s not ‘Have you ever been IN London…’? Maybe you’ve already talked about it, so please let me know where can I find it. Cheers, looking forward to the coming episodes 🙂

  • naomi

    Thank you!!!

  • Serge Bilyi

    Hi Lindsey and Jessica! What’s up Buttercup! ))
    My name is Serge, I’m from Ukraine.

    I am really fond of listening to your podcasts. Girls, you’re really making my days.
    Now I can’t even emagine how I’m gonna live after the IELTS without you. I always listen to you when going to my work everyday in the morning. Thus, your constant giggling, making fun out of siriousness and total drive energies me for the whole working day.

    If you mind, could you ask of a favour? I’m working currently on the writing skills. And the issue that bothers me is the follows – if it comes to writing an informal letter to what extent should it be informal? Basically I understand that no slang is allowed, but what about words like – “stuff”, and … whatever?

    Can you comment on this, please?

  • Indika Sanjeewa Rupasinghe

    Thank you very much for offering all these valuable knowledge free of charge.

    Hi Lindsey and Michelle,

    I really enjoy your show, and I have learned so much regarding no matter in English or culture. Most importantly, I have fun while I am listening. I got question for you, how do you guys record your podcast in different location simultaneously? I am very carious about it.

  • Dmytro

  • cissy54

    Hi Lyndsay and Michelle, thank you so much for bringing us such a wonderful show! I just rated it on ITunes and i hope it helps keeping it high.

    I do have a question for you! I’m now working on a position that requires me writing to people across departments. Sometimes I will need to check with people if a particular thing is one of their duties, of if it should go to another person. But I’m struggling how to say that naturally and concise. What can I say here?

    Thank you so much

  • wawanmaddaﱞﱞﱞ

    Hello, I am from Indonesia. Why there is no transkrip of all AEE episodes? As a someone who use english as second language, it is better to add transkrip to each episode so I can learn more because sometime we dont understand what actually you are saying. BTW thank you very much for all awesome episodes

  • Hi yes we have them for the first 200 episodes but you’ll need to purchase them. Go to allearsenglish.com/conversations

First of all, I really enjoy listening to your podcasts because they are very informative and filled with lots of energy that you guys bring up. So, thank you for that. And then there is this question i want to ask you. I work at walgreens pharmacy and many a times I experience this situation when prescriptions are absurdly expensive. And I really struggle to respond when customers get angry, frustrated, stressed out or sad. So, what kind of phrases I can use to respond to all these above mentioned reactions in such difficult situation without being critical to the company I work for.

  • Lindsay

    Hi good question. We’ll try to answer it soon

  • Chin-Pin Lan

    Hello from Taiwan! this is definitely the best podcast that I’ve been searching for IN MY LIFE!
    My name is CP, working hard on spoken English for years. While my writing, reading, listening and speaking have reached to a level that most of business in TW accept, I couldn’t jump over the obstacle of natural English speaking.
    I wonder if I’m able to have your response to this question about English speaking.
    “to PRONOUNCE more clearly, precisely at fast speed, I wonder how American natives EFFECTIVELY generate and combine all sounds including vowels and consonants coming from different point of mouth, tongue and wherever it is”
    By the way, I like the way Teacher Michelle generate sounds, which sounds like all her sounds are generated from the front of mouth, teeth and tongue.
    I would be so much appreciated if I am able to get response from you teachers.
    Have a nice day!

    Great episode! BTW,I was wondering where i can check up transcripts?

  • Yukiko Matsuzaki

    Hi! I’m an English teacher, translator, and an owner of a select shop in Japan. I found your channel on podcast and thought all of the episodes you shared were really really helpful and more Japanese should listen to it. So, here is a suggestion. I want to add Japanese subtitles… or make a Japanese version of the trascript for you to upload on the website. How does that sound? What you are saying are really what they have to know, and I want to share it with the people of all levels!

  • Gregory Kaller

    Hi guys . I have listened lots of different podcasts . Then few months ago I bumped into your . And I realy loved it . First of all because your cheerful and joyful voices and your positive attitude . So , I listened few and then I decided to start from de begining . Now I am in podcast number 173 . So Lindsay , where is Gabby ?

  • Gregory Kaller

    Hi Yukiko . Sorry for interfering . I thing , to listen this podcast you have to have at least advenced level . And if you are advanced – the subtitles in your language will just disturb . Sorry for my opinion , the question wasn’t for me .

  • Yukiko Matsuzaki

    Dear Greg,

    Thanks for your comment. I just thought their insights were really interesting and valuable for all the Japanese. You might not understand, but what they are saying will definitely change the Japanese people’s way of thinking toward English. If not subtitles, I would like to make the Japanese version of the transcript for at least my students, I will wait for their reply!

  • Hi Yukiko

    Thanks for your idea. While we have a lot of Japanese listeners, we also have many listeners from other countries. It is true what Gregory said that most listeners should be at intermediate to advanced level so there shouldn’t be a need for Japanese subtitles. I would challenge you to use the podcast with your students using the English transcriptions. You can get them at allearsenglish.com/transcripts. Thanks for listening and good luck!

  • Carla Lam

    Hi Lindsay and Michelle,
    I have been listening your podcosts every time when I drive. They have greatly improved my spoken English! Today when I use the word “as soon as” and “once”, I found I have problems with the correct grammar to use with the word, like “as soon as/once they submit” or “as soon as/once they have submitted”. Also, what is the difference of “as soon as” and “once”? Thank you.

    Hi Lindsay maam..actually my interviews are come in next week in my college but I don’t have confidence to face these because my English speaking is not that much good..plz help me to improve my confidence.

  • Sergio Vacca

    Hi girls, I’m wrighting from Italy, and you have become my travel buddies since I casually found you one year ago. Now I can’t drive my car without your nice company ?‍?‍?
    I recently bought a ring, and I intend to ask my girlfriend in marriage during our tour of NYC at the end of this August ???
    Can you please suggest me some romantic location where to spread hearts all over the air???❤️
    Thanks a lot and please don’t stop broadcasting, you are great!

  • wow good question! We’ll try to answer it on the show but probably it will be too late. Try the Highline. I also like the view of NYC from Hoboken. There is a nice park where you can sit and get a view of Manhattan from NJ. Brooklyn Bridge is classic but crowded with bikers and tourists. Good luck and congrats!

  • Sergio Vacca

    Thanks a lot Lindsay for your priceless advices, I’ll make good use of them. Would be an honor to inspire one of your episodes.
    Thanks again, I think you are the perfect teachers for connection.

    Hi girls!
    I am Fromtis Jundiai In Brazil. I commut every day to São Paulo and I hear your podcast during my trip.
    I love listening your podcast! You have took me to next level of English learn.
    Can you help me with a expression I read in CNN?
    “We have written them off”
    What’s mean this frase?

  • Hi that’s a great phrase and we’ll make an episode about it soon! Thanks for listening

  • Jara Zbrna

    I know there’s a lesson #442 about a word ‘guess’ and ‘reckon’. I’d like to know more about a word ‘guess’ as when I’m unsure, I start a sentence with ‘I guess’. I was told (by Englishman) that it’s better to say ‘I think’. Unfortunately I do not remember the whole sentence as this happened some year ago. Could you please clarify, if there’s any difference between words I guess, I think, I suppose, I’d say in American culture? Are these words synonyms or are there some subtle difference? Maybe a topic for another episode, maybe not 🙂
    Thanks for your podcast!!!

  • Nicole Lee

    Hi Lindsay! I wish to thank you and Jessica for sharing your knowledge and expertise to us, especially when it comes to IELTS. I have received my IELTS result today, which includes an overall bandscore of 7.5 (L:7.5,R:8,S:8,W:6.5). My target scores were 7 and above in all components. I am a non-native English speaker and I haven’t enrolled in any review center for my IELTS exam at all, so basically, what I did was purely self-study. To be honest, I didn’t really expect to receive those scores, especially in the Speaking part, since my previous attempts gave me a uniform scores of 6.5. I am so thankful that I found your channel on Stitcher 2 months ago, since your episodes helped a lot in my IELTS quest. I just followed your advice and strategies in IELTS Speaking, practised and prayed a lot and voilaaaaaa my bandscore raised from 6.5 to 8. Wow, until now I still can’t believe that it’s really possible. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart for all your efforts in sharing your expertise to us. Although, my Writing score didn’t reach my target of 7, I am still hoping that sooner or later I will be getting 7 and above in Writing. In fact, I am planning to request for a remark or maybe purchasing your special course whenever I have enough money. Again thank you so much.

    -Nicolette Lee, Philippines

  • Thanks we are glad to hear that. Can you please write this review in Itunes or Stitcher? Congratulations

  • Izumi Kumagai

    Hello. I’m Izumi from Japan.
    I’ve been listening your awesome podcast since I found it out.
    In some episodes, you answered listeners’ question. I’d like to ask you a question, too.
    I’m using some websites which runs for giving opportunity to chat foreigners for language learners. I often receive some messages from foreigners and they are men. I’m wondering their purpose is to practice languages or just girl-hunting.
    I’m afraid that this question is fitting in here. I’m sorry, but I just want to ask you it and get your opinion.

    Thank you.

  • Mariane Lousa

    hi guys, I would like to know if you have a ToEFL preparation or recommend someone ? Inedd help specially writing and speaking sessions… thanks Mariane.

  • Lily McMillan

    Hello Lindsay and Michelle:

    I am a big fan of All Ears English podcast. Since I found your podcast this May. I fell in love with it immediately and listened every single episode. AEE is a great company while driving, working out or doing chores, I listen it whenever is possible. You guys did a amassing job. I told a lot of friends about how amassing it is. I so much like your voice, your clear pronunciation, your energy behind microphone, widely range of knowledge that not only help me in academic but also in social life. I live in USA. Topics of American culture in social life help me a void some awkwardness, and feel more comfortable and confident to get along with people. your slogan “connection, not perfection” encourage us not to seek perfection so much, just connect with people help me talk more also. I see significant progress of my english. Thanks a lot for your dedication. You are deeply appreciated.

    Today my question is how to use use to, used to, get used to

    Is used to a phrase of verb? or use to is a phrase of verb, used to is just the past tense of use to. but I heard a lot that native english speaker say use to when they talk about past. How about get used to? You’ll get used to it. is get a linking verb? can it be removed? can I say you will use to it instead? It is confusing.

    It will be wonderful if it get answered at any upcoming episode.

    Thank you very much


  • SalifSmartZono

  • Ina

    Hi Girls,
    I love your podcast and wants to thank you for doing this! It is very helpful to improve my english.
    I have a question for you. I heard in another podcast this phrase: “he is droping his jam” and i wonder what that means.
    Maybe you can help me to understand 🙂
    Thanks a lot
    Ina from Swizerland

  • Ina

    Or only “droping jams” maybe -.-

  • Matt

    Thank you guys.I appreciated it

  • Yukiko Oohira

    Hi Lindsay and Michelle!

    I’m Yukiko from Osaka in Japan.
    I really enjoy listening to AEE!!!
    I usually listen to you guys while I go jogging. You always cheer me up (I think you help me run faster too!) Thank you for helping me keep up my motivation for learning English and running!!!
    I think I became more confident with my English, and my English got better thanks to you!!!

    I’d like to ask you a question.
    What is the difference between “upon” and “up on,” and what is the difference between “into” and “in to”? (Or other similar phrases like that!)

    I hope you can answer my question.

    I love the way you laugh :)))


  • Sari

    Hey girls! What’s shaking?

    I am a student from Germany and -of course- a passionate listener of your show!

    Your podcast is absolutely amazing! I am very glad that I found it on Itunes. So please, keep on recording!

    In a recent lesson we read an excerpt about multiculturalism in Britain and I have a question about a quote that is made in it.
    I would appreciate it a lot, if you could help me to understand this phrase better!
    “[The] malign impact of multiculturalism and political correctness has for years seen Britain segregated into inward-looking communities that eschew British values while the forces of law and order walk on eggshells, desperate not to offend”
    What does the author mean considering “political correctness”?
    How could you define “inward-looking communities”?
    Is “walking on eggshells” an idiom?
    Generally, what is the overal point of this phrase?
    I hope this question suits in the comment section and is not too long!
    Thank you very much in advance!
    I wish you a lovely day!

  • garywang

    Hi Lindsay and Michelle,

    I’m Gary Wang from Taiwan. I have been listening your podcast for one year, and really like your style to learn English. Your voice is so clear, amazing, and warm for listener. Will follow your episodes to learn more in English.

    BTW, I have no idea this is common problem or not in learning vocabulary. It’s easy for me to be confused on use following words, “rise, arise, raise”. For example, I wanna heads up some problems for some guys, which one is right word to use? I’m not so clear about their usages in speaching.

    –>Use verb ‘rise’ or ‘arise’ questions for getting your attention.



  • Thanks we will try to answer this soon!

  • Joaquina Rossi

    Hi Girls!. I really like the podcast. It is so useful for me. I just started a month ago, and now I use to listen to it every single night before going to sleep. My name is Joaquina, I am an exchange student from Argentina. I arrived to Ohio in August 2016. Now, I could say I´m getting use to the American Culture and life in the USA so well. I really love it! My point is that I have a question. I´m confused about the different between “to can” and “to be able to, In Spanish language, or in Argentina at least, we use “to can” more frequently than “be able to”. So I still do not understand the difference between that words. Could someone help me please? I would really appreciate it. Thank you guys and have an amazing year. Great job with this podcasts.

  • Yukiko Ohira

    Hi Lindsay and Michelle!
    I’m Yukiko from Osaka in Japan.

    I really enjoy listening to your podcasts and your fun conversations! Thank you so much for the fun time!!

    I have a question.
    How would you use the expression “later on”? Why don’t you just say “later” instead? Is there a difference? And I would also like to know how to use other expressions with similar meanings such as “in a bit,” “in a minute,” or “in a second.”

    You guys would make me super happy if you answered my question!!!

    Yoroshiku (that’s a Japanese expression, and there’s no way to translate it into English. It means something like thanks in advance.)


  • Igor

    Girls! How come you never thought of making the episode’s 666 topic “How to worship Satan in English”? 🙂 “Cravings”, my ass!
    But really, could you please make an episode about this expression — (…, my ass!)
    You do need to cover this side of the language as well. Otherwise, we just cannot quite connect. 🙂
    Thank you for the show! It became my everyday routine to listen to you.

    I am Kumiko from Japan.
    Your show is helpful and fun, so I am enjoying listening to it so much.
    I have a question and would be so grateful if you could answer it.
    I have been wondering how it is different exactly when American people say “I suppose”, “I guess”, “I imagine”, “I bet”, and so on. I think it would be cool if I knew the difference and could use them correctly. Do you think it might help me sound more natural??
    I always end up repeating “I think” when I speak in English…
    Thank you so much!

    Your podcast is great. It even becomes my dairy routine as I always expect to receive the notification from iPhone that AEE has new podcast. I’ve recommended friends around me it is the only podcast you cannot miss.

    Recently, we get a little bit confused about “finish” and “complete” when our client from Japan ask us if the task “finished” or not. We knew that they mean “completed”. Could you please help to explain how you use those word with confusing meanings.

    It is also awkward to correct under this situation. How will you deal with in order to keep the connection going?

    By the way, have you change your slogan to conduction instead of connection?

  • Francisco Gomez

    HI Girls, I really enjoy everyday your podcasts, I have trying to improve my English skills constantly doing an effort to find many ways to learn without be a disturbing stuff in my daily routine. Your podcasts are perfect because they are like an escape, they are funny and many topics are interesting and the best for me they are easy to listening.

    I am from Venezuela, and as you know my mother tongue is Spanish, I considered that I have a medium level of English, I think that. Although. I have been working for about three years in Ghana, Africa, where everybody speak English and I don’t have trouble in my job to communicate everything, of course sometimes I would like to have the same speed during speaking like in Spanish, may be with time i will do that.

    I have a question for you, I think is more about the process to learn another language. Why I can understand more phrases and words when I participated in any conversation, but this phrases and word sometimes are not in my vocabulary as well? may be because I have been dedicated more time to the listening and comprehension than speaking. Of course I have done presentations in the company, but I always think I need to improve more. Also my colleagues have the same feeling.


  • Hi thanks for the feedback! We will try to answer your question soon on the show!

  • Thanks! We will try to answer this on the podcast within the next few months. Keep listening!
