How to do Passive Voice for English Verbs in Present and Past Tenses Ep 414

Today, in the UK, children are going back to school. We wish them all good luck and thank goodness they can meet up with friends and get socialising again. While I am sure it will take time for schools to get back to normal, just getting out of the house and running around with some friends will be a huge physiological uplift for them.

Learn To Speak English Efficiently Through Focused English Listening Ep 412

Over the years we have had many comments and conversations about which language has the most words, or the biggest vocabulary. The topic is complicated. There is no simple answer because it is a question which is not specific enough to get a correct answer. In todayโ€™s English listening lesson, we talk about how you need to focus on the words that matter in speaking English. We talk about the most efficient approach to learning what you actually need in order to speak English fluently.
