I typed "British food" on Spotify and I found the Leonardo English podcast first. Not only I was intrigued by the variety of the topics that we can find on the podcast account but I deeply enjoy the quality of the content. It is always a pleasure to listen to it every morning. Thank you.

"As an English teacher, I was seeking to boost my listening skills. Leonardo English was highly appealing to me. Its informative and linguistically rich podcasts along with its serene tone of speech has exposed me to a variety of authentic collocation patterns, standard pronunciation and stress, and a British accent.

Great question. Generally these sessions cover an interesting topic, a presentation, or a community discussion.
They take place virtually, typically on the last Wednesday of the month at 7pm CET (Paris/Rome time).
It's a great opportunity to learn something new, practise your English with other curious minds (but speaking isn't required), and have some fun at the same time.
Past topics include "How to actually use podcasts to improve your English", "Accents in English", "What British people really mean", and "Brexit".

Yes. When you become a member you will receive a unique link to add the member-only episodes to your favourite podcast app. You can read more about this here.

Yes, changing your membership is very easy.

Sure, if you are a member you can request topics for us to make.
We want to make the podcasts that our members want to listen to - join today and start requesting topics within minutes.

Who built Leonardo English?
Hi, I'm Alastair 👋.
I'm an English guy from London, who has spent 35 years on this earth studying foreign languages, working in technology, teaching English to foreigners, and thinking about learning languages.
I'm a native English speaker, am fluent in Italian and French, have a Masters in Mandarin Chinese, and have studied Russian, Latin and Greek, as well as dabbling in Spanish and German.
I've lived in the UK, France, Italy and China. I now live in Malta, am married to an Italian, have a little (almost) trilingual baby, and have friends from all over the world, so I've spent my life thinking about how best to learn a language.
I'm building Leonardo English to help people like you improve your English while learning about the world.
What kind of English accent will I learn?
The majority of our content is in a British 'BBC' accent, otherwise known as The Queen's English.
On occasion we may have content in an American, Australian, or South African accent.
