Episode 299 - Live Show - Learning Things During Lockdown

May 17, 2020

In this live show I was supposed to have my friend on but unfortunately something had happened and I had to improvise the whole thing myself.

Besides a lot of rambling as usual, you will find out what I have been doing and learning during the lockdown. At the end I also teach you a few expressions to do with learning. 

I need to get better at interacting with my listeners and generally do this in a more professional way. I beat myself up way too much, but it is actually a positive thing to have this room for improvement.

Episode 298 - The Best IELTS Tip Ever

May 16, 2020

This episode starts with an important announcement - an invitation to ZEP Live Show featuring Nrup, which is happening tomorrow at 9pm central European time. All the ins and outs about this including how to join are said in the first few minutes of the episode. 

The main aim of this episode, though, is to show you some essential functional language you may employ during speaking parts of exams such as IELTS and Cambridge exams. we are talking about the language English speakers use for giving themselves more time and when they forget what they want to say. We all need this so this episode is compulsory for everyone :).

May 8, 2020

Probably the most insane episode I have ever recorded. I was also joined by John and we did this live. We had some Zeppers, but also non-Zeppers listening to this in real time and interacting with us through messages. The whole thing was completely improvised.

In this admittedly rather depressing series I talk to my friends who live in different parts of the world to tell us about how the coronavirus crisis is being tackled in their country and how this situation is personality affecting their lives. This series has a form of mini interviews which are about 8-10 minutes long and there will be more parts to follow. 

Part 1 features Alexander from Russia, Musa from Turkey who is currently living in the UK, Daniel from Switzerland who is also known from My Fluent Podcast, and last but not least, Daria from Ukraine. 

I apologize for lower quality of the recordings.
