Thanks to this innovative format, you can improve your language skills in a dynamic and very entertaining way by accessing personalized content that corresponds to your English level.

Tips for learning English by listening to podcasts
Choose content that suits your level
If you really want to progress, you need to choose podcasts that correspond to your level of English. If you’re at an intermediate level, look for a podcast in English for B1 so you can understand most of the audio. If you’re at the upper-intermediate level, just focus on podcasts in English for B2, as this can provide you with new knowledge.
Organize them by category
There are a variety of podcasts for intermediate English learners out there. So, it’s important to find the topics that interest you and organize them into categories (grammar, lifestyle, technology, entertainment, etc.). You can also create a list to find them more easily and listen to them in an orderly fashion.
Find new spaces
You no longer have to give up your daily practice due to lack of time. Since these are digital files, you can listen to them when you drive, while you’re on public transport, or while you’re working out at the gym.
Improve your linguistic skills
In addition to learning with the content offered by the podcasts, you can take advantage of them to practice your listening skills, to expand your vocabulary, and even to improve your pronunciation by doing repetition exercises.
Everything you need to know about intermediate level podcasts
Why should I listen to podcasts at the intermediate level?
Podcasts are a very useful tool for you to expand your vocabulary, improve your pronunciation, and learn how to pronounce words correctly. They are also a key factor in practicing your listening because they allow you to get used to the different accents that native speakers have and the speed with which they speak.
What themes do intermediate level podcasts talk about?
The subjects are very diverse and entertaining: daily life situations, current events, curiosities, business, interviews, conversations, and opinions on a particular topic, among many others. There’s something for everyone!
What type of podcasts should I choose?
It’s important for you to be aware of your level of knowledge. If you recently passed the basic level, look for podcasts in English for B1, as they have a lower degree of complexity than those of the upper intermediate level. If you are at the upper intermediate level, select podcasts in English for B2 to perfect your language skills and prepare for the advanced level.
Why choose a podcast for learning English at an intermediate level and not another format?
One of the main reasons is that podcasts don’t interfere with other activities. So, you can listen to them while you are doing something else. On the other hand, you can listen to them online or download them to play them when you want and as many times as you need.
