Learning a new language is challenging and rewarding. But flashcards and textbooks don't sound out the words. Listeners can add to their knowledge with the Learn English Through Listening podcast. The Adept English site creates the podcast.
Hilary Platt is the host of Learn English Through Listening. She is a qualified teacher with degrees in Latin and psychology. Hilary is passionate about teaching languages. She saw how frustrated students could get when trying to learn a new language. Students spent years reading and writing English, but still had trouble speaking English. So, Hilary created the "listen and learn" approach as a solution for beginners.
