Fun English Lessons (general)
This ESL podcast is a comedy style talk show done by two Canadian brothers living in Shanghai, China. Fun to listen to and a great way to improve English.

A:  What do you think about all the coverage of the Royal Baby?

 

B:  It makes me sick!  I really don't see what the big deal is. 

 

A:  I think mostly women care about it from what I've seen.  Maybe they fantasize about marrying a prince or something.  They get all emotional about this kind of fairy tale life.  It also helps that Kate is pretty hot.  William, on the other hand, looks terrible, but at least he has a good sense of humor about it and said he was glad the baby takes after his mom in terms of how he looks. 

 

B:  Well, I guess if it's just girls who care about it then it's not too bad.  I certainly wouldn't want to be friends with any guy who genuinely gives a damn about this.

In this ESL podcast we talk about "Stitcher".  This is a great way to listen to our podcast.  Also, we talk about learning English for real life conversations.

Dialog:

A: I just picked up a new Samsung Galaxy S IV. What is the best way to listen to you guys on China232?

B: There are certainly no shortage of options. You've got the 232 Android and Apple apps for example. You can listen directly on the site. You can also download the Stitcher podcast App and use that. Stitcher is an awesome way to get at the free ones.

A: I'm a complete tool with technology. How do I do that?

B: All you've gotta do is search the Android or iTunes app store for "STITCHER". It's free. Just download it and search for "fun English lessons" directly on the app. We'll be at the top of the list. You'll figure it out.

A: I think I can pull that off. I'm going to give that a go as soon as I get to a wifi hotspot.

B: They have free wifi here. Why don't you just do it now?

A: Ok..... Oh, there you guys are. Why do you have such a stupid looking logo?

B: Negligence I guess. That was from a long time ago. Neither of us have an artistic bone in our body. We're going to get a pro designer to work on that soon. It's one of many things on our priority list. We finally gave in to the fact that we can't do any proper design with Add at the helm. I'm even more useless. A: Better late than never I guess!

In this ESL podcast we talk about our plans for 2013 and about getting out of a long relationship and getting a fresh start on life.

Dialog:

A:  How's single life?

B:  It's ok.  It's relaxing.  It's nice having the place to myself, but it can be kind of lonely at times.  I don't have any "friends with benefits" anymore either. 

A:  Why don't you go hit up some clubs this weekend?  This city is flooded with tons of hot single girls.

B:  Clubs aren't my scene at all.  I always seem to get too wasted and strike out when I go.

A:  Come on man, everyone gets rejected sometimes.  Don't think too much.  You've just got to put yourself out there and things will be fine.

In this ESL podcast we get back into the free section and talk about some major life decisions we’ve been making. Learn English for real life!

Dialog:

A:  Yo, what up homie?

B:  Not much bro.  Just firing off an email to some retard at work. 

A:  Is it an important one or can it wait?

B:  It’s not important at all.  I just feel like taking this one guy down a peg.  His new job title went straight to his head and now he’s just being a loser to everyone.

A:  Why are you wasting your time on that kind of thing?

B:  Just for the hell of it really.

This Free ESL podcast is about Facebook.  Learn English for slang daily conversation in English.

Dialog:

A:  Hey, what’s your facebook?

B:  I forget.  It should be easy to find though.  We’ve got a lot of mutual friends on there.  I don’t use it much anymore though.

A:  Really?  I love it.  I find it helps me stay in touch with people I don’t see on a regular basis.  It really keeps me from drifting apart from old friends.

B:  It’s great for that but I find it to be a bit much.  Anyone can upload any photo of you and tag you in it.  Then everyone can see that photo whether you want them to or not.

A:  I agree it can be a bit of an invasion of privacy.  Anyway, I still like it overall.

B:  Well, you’re not alone.  Over 600 million people use it and the international growth is amazing.
