Boost Your Learning Experience

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 all new episodes 101 - 150.
  • New Transcripts posted as episodes released!
  • When complete, 400 + PDF pages and Mp3s that correspond the audio.

This will take me more than one year to create. If you study one a week, it’ll take you also almost one year to complete!

Step 1: Listen Actively

Just like usual, you can listen to the episode. However, in addition to the Mp3 - which gives you permanent access to the audio files - you can actively listen and check on words you do not understand.

I recommend listening first without the transcript.

Step 2: Check Vocab

When you can't understand a word from context or from pronunciation, check the transcript. In addition to being key in clarifying misunderstandings, it can serve as a resource for comparing written and spoken English.

I recommend writing original sentences with new vocabulary.

Step 3: Listen again!

Before listening a second time, be sure to review the transcript and / or use the podcast player in Season 2 to review new words, phrases you didn't know the first time around. Then listen again. I recommend shadowing (repeating after me) ONLY after you've understood everything in the audio.


Season 3 will include Expression Episodes, 5-Minute English Episodes, Chats with Shana Episodes, 10 Words a Day Episodes and Interviews. Episodes will be released EVERY TWO WEEKS starting July 1, 2021.

About 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!
