Elementary Podcasts is back! Some things are the same (Tess, Ravi and Carolina) and some things are new, for example the presenters. So whether you're new to Elementary Podcasts or have been listening since Series 1, give it a try!
While you listen
Elementary Podcasts are suitable for learners with different levels of English. Here are some ways to make them easier (if you have a lower level of English) or more difficult (if you have a higher level of English). You can choose just one or two of these suggestions - you don't have to do all of them!
Making it easier
Read all the exercises before you listen to the podcast.
Look up the words in the exercises that you don't know in a dictionary.
Play the podcast as many times as you need.
Play each part of the podcast separately.
Read the transcript after you have listened to the podcast.
Making it harder
Listen to the podcast before you read the exercises.
Only play the podcast once before answering the questions.
Play the whole podcast without a break.
Don't read the transcript.
Now, listen to the podcast and do the exercises on the following tabs.
What can you remember about Tess and Ravi's conversation?
Can you remember what Ravi said about making fish and chips? Move the words into the right places in the text.
Which words go in which categories? Drag them to the place you think is right.
Do you know what all the words mean? Look up the words you don’t know in a dictionary.
Can you add any more words to each list?
Ravi explained how to cook fish and chips; he gave the recipe for them. Leave a comment below with a recipe that you know well. We'll talk about our favourites next episode!

Hello trang avril,
In Series 3 and 4, Carolina appears in even-numbered episodes (i.e. 2, 4, 6, 8, etc.), whereas Tess and Ravi appears in odd-numbered episodes (1, 3, 5, etc.).
