Enjoy! I hope to be making more podcasts soon. Feel free to leave me a comment if there is a particular topic you’d like me to discuss.

Below is a copy of the podcast script, in case you want to read it while listening to the podcast. However, it is probably best to listen to the podcast at least 1 time before reading the script.

Have a great weekend!

Podcast #1

Hi, my name is Yvonne. This is The English Guru podcast #1 and today we are going to start at the beginning with the alphabet. Repeat the letters after me…A-B-C-D-E-F-G-H-I-J-K-L-M-N-O-P-Q-R-S-T-U-V-W-X-Y-Z

Learning how to say the letters properly is important for when someone asks you to spell your name or the street you live on. Let’s practice that.

My name is Yvonne. You spell it Y-V-O-N-N-E. Now you try with your name.

I live on smith Street. You spell it S-M-I-T-H. You can give it a try too.

Sometimes on the phone it’s hard to hear the letters of the alphabet and some letters like d and b sound the same. Because of this some people spell things like this:

I live on Branch Street. B as in boy, R as in Rat, A as in Apple, N as in Nancy, C as in Cat and H as in Hop

You can practic that and then come back for podcast #2 where I will talk about greetings.
