Learn English 169 Podcast 100 Years Of English practice

A free learn English quickly podcast lesson from Adept English released weekly EVERY Monday and Thursday

This weeks short English practice podcast lesson talks about a centenarian (someone who has lived for 100 years, a century). Just imagine all the English practice this person has had throughout their lives. English language is changing all the time and when this person was born in 1918 the first world war was just ending. The English used in 1918 is so different to that in use around Britain today even native British English speakers must learn new phrases and vocabulary to keep up.

This podcast lesson also talks about the English language used for percentages and fractions. You might ask why would I ever need to learn English fractions? If you asked what the time is in the UK today almost, everyone would use a fraction to tell you the time. Half past 10, a quarter to 11, etc. Percentages are important too, nearly all the shops will show price discounts as percentages and someone might say “Wow I got 50% off my shopping today”.

So a fascinating English practice podcast talking about being a 100 years old and what that means for you in the UK. The English language you would use when talking about fractions and percentages.
