A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about All Ears English podcast, that was founded by Lindsay McMahon
and Gabby Wallace. I mentioned that Gabby left All Ears English after working
for one year on episodes of All Ears English. In this post, I’m going to give
you more details about her own project called Go Natural English and my
personal impressions about Gabby and her methods.
Today, let me speak about an amazing podcast. It is All Ears English that was founded by Lindsay McMahon “the
English Adventurer” and Gabby Wallace “the Language Angel” from
Boston, Massachusetts, USA. In this short article I’m going to introduce
Lindsay and Gabby, their podcast very briefly, in addition I’m going to tell
you who I recommend this podcast to. All Ears English is also available on iTunes, and Stitcher.
In my previous posts I introduced you to my favorite
pronunciation teachers. They are Rachel and
Mandy. I referred to their materials (videos, audios,
websites) in several other posts of mine such as classification
of English vowel sounds. I still like their activity; however, if I wrote these posts nowadays,
they could be little different. Why? I would consider another pronunciation
teacher as well whose name is Jennifer Tarle. Today, I would like to write
about her activity, Youtube
channel and website.
reviewing all the individual vowels, let’s take a deep breathe. Now, the
diphthongs are coming. What is a
diphthong? It’s a sound that is
the subtle combination of two vowel sounds within the same syllable. That means
each diphthong consists of two vowel sounds that we learned in the previous
lessons. Again and again, I will refer
English (including her video channel) and Mandy’s pronuncian.com
podcast. Now, we’re going to learn about 6 sounds and because it can be a lot to absorb, I
suggest youbreak it into 3 parts.
After a longer break caused by some unpleasant things,
I return to writing, but this post won’t be very serious. Now, let me answer a
question about music. I was asked quite often about my favorite style of music,
and group. Well, I’m great fan of rock music.
If I begin to chat about it, I can hardly finish. I do love a lot of groups
from Hungary and other parts of
the world. My favorite group outside of
Hungary is Nightwish from Finland. What kind of music do they play? You’ll see it, I mean you’ll hear it. At the moment,
they are between two albums, and
two tours. They may be preparing new songs under the radar, so I have no information about it. I don’t feel
like writing about their past, about their
former albums. I would rather write about other groups and singers who
like performing covers.
As the title of this blog indicates
I’m involved in learning American English. However, it doesn’t mean that I
avoid every piece of material
from the United Kingdom.
I have some favorite musical groups
(such as Deep Purple, or Iron Maiden) from Great Britain and I also like some
funny movies or TV series.
In this post, I’d like to introduce you to a funny series from the BBC entitled “You rang M’Lord”. It was broadcast between
1990 and 1993 on BBC. The episodes show a house of an aristocratic family in
the 1920s, contrasting the upper-class family and their servants in a house in London.
