American English Podcast

By Shana Thompson

Hi everyone! So I’ve decided after some thinking that every now and then I plan on doing a bonus episode where I talk about things that are going on in my life and also about some plans for the American English podcast. 

So this will be the first one and I know at times I will probably ramble. This is when you talk in a very round about way, where you don’t really have very much direction. That’s normal. It’s the way that, you know, my brain is working and I think at times it can help actually a lot with language learning because you can hear the natural way that someone is thinking and the way that they’re processing ideas. And that’s also great for transitions, you know, how can you move from one thought to another . . . what sorts of ways you can connect your thoughts. And so overall I hope this is useful for you. 

Anyway, I’m so glad I finally got this podcast started. So far I’ve had some really cool feedback from some of my students and also from some of the people that have found it spontaneously on iTunes. If you do like this podcast I’d love some more feedback and if you give a review and if you send it to my handle on Instagram, it’s @americanenglishpodcast, I’ll give you a shout out on the podcast. So if you want to do that I’d be incredibly grateful. Every review helps you get more people listening.
