What is Anglopod?

It is a website that makes learning English online fun and easy. There are regular videos that focus on different features of English and there are six animated video courses to help you really improve your English. You can take the course LEARN REAL-LIFE ENGLISH: STUDY for free! If you like that one, then take the other courses.

If you have any questions or ideas for lessons then get in touch with me.

Where did the idea come from?

The idea for Anglopod (Anglo meaning 'something English' + pod from 'podcast') started around 2005 as a series of podcasts to teach the most useful idioms, slang and phrasal verbs in context so that learners could sound more natural when speaking English. It eventually evolved into a series of video courses as well as free video lessons on YouTube.

Who is Dan?

Hello there! I'm Dan and I've been teaching English around the world since 1994 and in that time I've been lucky enough to teach in Brazil, Mexico, Spain, China and of course in the UK. I was born in London but I love seeing other parts of the world. I speak Portuguese, Spanish and (some) French and I want to learn more, because I love languages, which helps in my line of work. I also love films, books, photography, spicy food and sunny weather!
