843. The Birth of Our Son

2023-09-1301:30:559

Talking to my wife (and daughter) about the birth of our son, who came into the world just a few weeks ago. We describe what happened, and explain how it feels to become parents for the second time. This is a very personal, first-hand account of childbirth and the experience of bringing a child into the world. Watch out for the vocabulary of childbirth and children which has previously been explained in episodes 162, 491, 492 and 814.Β Episode page on my website https://teacherluke.co.uk/2023/08/31/843-the-birth-of-my-son/ Sign up to LEP Premium on Acast+ https://plus.acast.com/s/teacherluke.

This is the longest episode of LEP so far, and it's a solo ramble. I talk freely about a lovely day I had in Paris earlier this year, which really stuck in my memory. Relax, follow my words, hang out with me for 3 hours, get stranded on a desert island of the imagination, and then get rescued. Includes a haircut, a sleep and a t-shirt change during the episode.πŸ‘‰ πŸ“– Script/notes available on the episode page here https://wp.me/p4IuUx-sQd Sign up to LEP Premium on Acast+ https://plus.acast.com/s/teacherluke.

How would the same car accident be described in over 15 completely different styles of English? What are the differences in vocabulary, grammar and organisational structure? How should I change my voice to read each description? Let's see how English changes in different situations. Styles presented include: formal and informal English, news reports, an action movie screenplay, an Eminem rap, a romantic novel, a Shakespeare play, a politician making a speech, a stand-up comedian, Liam Neeson in the film Taken, and Luke in an episode of Luke's English Podcast.

What does research tell us about the best way to learn a language? What are the most important things to consider? What are the best methods?

Amber returns to the podcast to tell us some grisly stories about the history of Paris. Amber is a bit of an expert about Paris. She has read pretty much every book about the city and is also a registered tour guide here. A few years ago she set up a podcast called Paname Podcast (Paname is a nickname for Paris). Each episode contains a true story from history, with tales of battle, execution, romance, tragedy and adventure. You can get it where you get your podcasts. In this episode Amber comes onto LEP to share a few stories from her podcast series. Includes a 30-minute ramble at the end of the episode.πŸ‘‰ Listen to Amber's podcast https://plinkhq.com/i/1241927554?to=pageπŸ‘‰ Page for this episode on my website https://wp.me/p4IuUx-sOg Sign up to LEP Premium on Acast+ https://plus.acast.com/s/teacherluke.

Is that a confusing title? Hopefully not. As you might expect, it's a little summary of what's included in the episode. To give you some more details, Alastair Budge is the host of a podcast called "English Learning for Curious Minds" and he has created a new audio drama for English learners called "Pioneers of the Continuum". It's a time-travel adventure for English learners, and Alastair asked me to be the narrator for episode 1. In this episode of LEP, we talk about Alastair's story, living in Malta, learning English by immersion, cliches and complaints from English speakers visiting Paris and Alastair's story about playing the bagpipes on the streets of Paris. The audio version includes 30+mins of rambling from me at the end.
