Hi there dear language learning friends and welcome to another episode of our weekly podcast - English Across The Pond. In case we haven’t already met, we are two native English language teachers with over 30 years’ teaching experience between us, Jennifer from the US and Dan from England. Nice to meet you :)
This week we are talking all about individuality and chatting about things like - what does it mean to be an individual? And is it always better to stand out? Listen along to our natural conversation and hear all all the up to date phrases, expressions and vocabulary you need to improve your English skills.
After the chat the language focus explains the words I, me, my, mine and myself.
