English learning for curious minds

Are you bored of vocabulary, grammar, and phrasal verbs?

At Leonardo English, we believe that learning English should be interesting.

You should learn more than just language. You should broaden your mind.

Here's how we do it.

We produce English podcasts that teach you fascinating things about how the world works.

They are spoken at a speed you can understand, and come with a transcript and key vocabulary.

Imagine taking English lessons from your most knowledgeable friend.
