We are two brothers from Canada. We grew up near Toronto and are now living in Shanghai. We’ve been to many different countries and have travelled all over China. We’ve seen and taught thousands of students who find learning English difficult and boring. We decided to make something interesting and useful so that students could improve their English rapidly, while having fun at the same time.
We make an entertaining English learning podcast every week that students download and listen to on their computer or mp3 player. We discuss interesting topics about all kinds of different things. We use and explain words and phrases that we actually use in our daily lives. We also point out common language mistakes that many learners make. We share stories about our lives and talk about cultural differences. We talk in a fun and relaxed way. We want our listeners to be our friends. Our goal is to have our listeners forget that they are even learning English, and are instead just listening to our show because they enjoy it. We’ve literally received thousands of emails from people all over the world saying that they are "addicted" to the podcast and can hardly wait for new episodes to come out. They say that since they started listening, their English level and self-confidence have improved dramatically. This amazing feedback gives us the motivation to continue with this project. We’ve now had over 2 million downloads of our podcast. We have thousands of fans from over 160 countries around the world.
