About Season 2
Get ready. You're about to be immersed in a hodgepodge of history and culture!
Season 2 corresponds to episodes 051 - 100 of the podcast, and it's jam-packed with challenging, hands-on bonus material.
In this Season 2, you'll not only get the transcripts and Mp3s, you'll gain access to two courses: The American Culture and History Course - Part 3 and The 5-Minute English Course.
This package includes a number of in-depth lessons to help you dive deeper into each topic and optimize your independent study of American English.
For Intermediate-Advanced Learners of English
If you have an intermediate to advanced level of English and want a structured and systematic way to improve your language level, this content is for you.
Transcripts + Mp3s (Episodes 051 - 100)
See the spelling to look up words. Review what you’ve heard. Dive deeper into each episode.
I recommend listening to the episode first and then listening a second time with the transcript. With this package, you'll gain access to:
- Transcripts and Mp3s for episodes 051 - 100.
- Premium Podcast Player to practice pronunciation.
- When complete, 500 + PDF pages and Mp3s that correspond the audio.
This took me over one year to create. If you study one a week, it’ll take you also almost one year to complete!
English Immersion Through Culture
I'm so happy to share with you the very third part of the American Culture and History Course series. This comes included with Season 2.
These lessons and these series can be taken in any particular order. In them, you'll learn and practice new vocabulary, work on pronunciation through shadowing exercises and be forced to apply your to newly learned knowledge in dynamic activities that will build speaking and writing skills.
Fluency One Topic at a Time
Teachers will often tell you that repetition is key to successful learning. The problem is that repetition of the same content can be boring!
In the 5-Minute English course, repetition of key vocabulary and phrases is presented in a variety of dynamic, hands-on steps.
Each step builds on the next, so that by the end of the week, you will have gained exposure to key vocabulary and phrases a number of times.
Exercises, quizzes, pronunciation, reading, listening, watching and writing. Whatever language skill you'd like to develop, it's here.
Listen and Read
Downloadable PDF transcripts are provided for ALL lessons, so that you can listen and read away from your computer.
Key vocabulary and phrases are highlighted so that you can relocate them easily.
You'll have access to the Premium Podcast Player to practice pronunciation. Videos are provided to practice on your own.
Key words and phrases are read slowly with supplementary images to facilitate mastery of the terms.
Quizzes + Challenges
In both courses included in Season 2, you'll have quizzes to test your learning. You'll also be given a weekly challenge that pushes you to USE what you've learned.
Meet Your Teacher
My name is Shana and I’m an ESL teacher from California.
Over the past 10 years, I’ve been fortunate to share my love of English in Brazil, Spain, Germany, and throughout the US. Having taught over 3,000 online and in-person lessons, I’ve become obsessed with how to make the intermediate student's learning experience effective and memorable.
Apart from teaching, I like to bake, hike and I’m an avid language learner. I love listening to German and French podcasts and chatting with my husband Lucas and our two daughters in Portuguese!
