Animated Podcast Number 8: Beginner’s guide to the Past Tense

So what’s an animated podcast ?

Good question !

It’s a podcast with pictures, learning tips and clues. In short, it’s just a helping hand to help you understand the conversation and the context.

This is Animated Podcast number 8 in a series of 10, in which each one has a specific focus and gets progressively more challenging. 

In the eighth one, The Beginner’s Guide to the Past Tense, you can hear a conversation between a new learner and Chris, who helps the learner talk all about his holiday driving through the National Parks of Colorado. You will be guided through the past tense and prompted to fill in the blanks and anticipate the correct form of the verb to use.

Who is it designed for ?

It’s a perfect opportunity for new learners (pre-intermediate) to get familiar with the Past Tense.

It’s a great way for Intermediate learners to consolidate knowledge.

Why you shouldn’t have a Bucket List !

Why you shouldn’t have a Bucket List !

Bucket lists, bucket lists, bucket lists, it seems that everyone’s got one. There are hundreds and hundreds of bucket list suggestions on the internet. 

Are these lists inspiring or disheartening ? Are they a great way to broaden your horizons or the fastest way to hate your everyday life? 

Do you have a list of things you would like to do, places you would like to visit and experiences that would make your life complete ? 

Or do you think it’s just a shallow invention of social media sites, a way of showing off and deep down they make us dissatisfied with our everyday life ?

In this podcast Sue tries to convince Chris that bucket lists are unnecessary, unrealistic and predictable. Listen carefully to the reasons she gives. 

What’s your opinion ?
