Episode 259 - It’s Not That Deep Podcast (Doctor Who episode) - Pronunciation Analysis

June 1, 2019

Do you remember Clare without "i"? She has featured on ZEP several times before.

I wanted to give you a taste of her new podcast "It's Not That Deep" so I came up with an idea. Essentially, I took 10 minutes from one of her episodes and decided to pick apart the language for you with a special emphasis on pronunciation. If you like Doctor Who, then you will be pleased to hear that the chosen episode from Not That Deep podcast is about this popular British TV show.

As for the pronunciation analysis, I will be looking at some individual sounds, stress, elision, and more.

One more thing. I think I mistakenly called Clare's podcast Not That Deep, but it is in fact called It's Not That Deep. My apologies.

Episode 258 - That’s a Question with PP1

Episode 258 - That’s a Question with PP1

May 28, 2019

This episode was recorded during class while playing a game where we ask each other simple questions. The episode features a lot of guests so there some talking over each other, butr generally speaking it should be well understood. The tone is very light-hearted.

I also have one important disclaimer. during the episode, one of the students keeps mentioning probably the most atrocious man in the history of mankind Hitler in a slightly joking way. I know this is not a laughing matter, but there is a context to this and I would like to explain it.

One of the most popular games we sometimes play during my board game meet-ups is a hidden role game called Secret Hitler (I recommend googling it) and it is the game he was refering to during the episode. We do not promote the condone actions of this individual in any way, shape or form, quite the opposite, we condemn them. I just felt like it was necessary to clarify.

Episode 256 - A Chat with Olga about Dental Hygiene

April 27, 2019

This episode is a conversation class with my student Olga. I put her on the spot a bit by coming to our private lesson and asking her to record a podcast interview with me about her profession.

She is a dental hygienist so she explains what her profession involves and gives a lot of valuable advice about how to clean our teeth, etc.
