Use interactive transcripts to reinforce your learning
Published May 3, 2017 .
Every episode of Plain English has a full online transcript so you can read along as you listen. And if Spanish is your first language, the transcript includes interactive translations so you never have to stop and look up the definition of a word.
Plain English is a weekly audio program specifically for learners of English. Each week, we discuss one or two recent events and review vocabulary and expressions used in the show. Listeners can follow along with transcripts.
By listening to Plain English and using the online transcripts, intermediate English learners will enhance their vocabulary, improve their listening comprehension skills, and learn about the English-speaking world via interesting, genuine topics. We like to say the show is for learners of English, but is not about learning English.
