Hi, everyone. How’s it going? I hope that you’re safe and well and very far away from any signs of the Coronavirus.

For today’s episode, I’d like to do something quite different. You may have noticed that the title for this episode is called Five-Minute English. That’s right. Each episode in the future titled Five-Minute English will be five minutes long and about a specific topic. My goal is to teach you the common phrasal verbs, vocabulary and collocations used in that specific topic to help you become fluent in one topic at a time.

Fluency in one topic at a time is a concept that was briefly discussed at a polyglot conference I attended years ago. As a language teacher and language learner, I love it. The reason being fluency is hard to measure. We all want to achieve fluency and yet don’t have achievable stepping stones to get there. Many of us don’t even know what it feels like or looks like once we’ve reached it. This is not the case when we’re dealing with individual topics and fluency one topic at a time.

So for you, I’ve gathered all of the words and phrases needed to talk about a specific topic in depth.
