Today I’m announcing something I’ve been excited about for a long time, making it easier than ever to follow along with every episode, and learn new words as you listen.

Long story short, you can now hover over less common words in the transcript to see their meanings.

Here's a little video I made to show you how it works.

This is live for every one of our 110+ episodes. 

I counted the number of words and phrases (so you don’t have to). There are 4,217 so far, and  100-150 new ones added every week.

It’s simple.

Listen to the audio. 

Follow the transcript. 

The harder words are highlighted, just put your mouse over one (on desktop) or tap on it (on mobile).

Ta-da, the meaning is revealed.

If you’re a listener to the podcast, and you have struggled to understand some of the more advanced vocabulary and expressions, then this should be exciting news for you.

If you’re a member of Leonardo English, you’ll see this immediately on every podcast. If you’re not a member yet, you can see it in action on the Free Transcripts page or become a member and you'll get access to everything.

Here’s to a more interesting, more effective, way to improve your English.
