I have featured this podcast site on several occasions due to its wealth of vocabulary and cultural information about the United States. It is definitely one of the best out there, if not the best. The mp3 podcasts are free. However, if you want the learning guide you need to subscribe. The learning guide includes not only the dialogue but the transcript of the entire podcast plus further vocabulary explanations and exercises. Visit their homepage for further information: http://www.eslpod.com/website/index_new.html
Today, I have chosen one of their podcast discussing terms to talk about wealth! It is rich in idiomatic expressions! To visit the page where you can read the dialogue and download the podcast, go to: ESL Podcast 489 – Talking About Wealth
In each podcast, you’ll hear a dialogue spoken at a slow speed followed by an extensive explanation of the vocabulary. At the end, you’ll hear the dialogue again spoken at native speed. Each podcast is like having your own private English lesson! I very highly recommend this site.
