"Hi Culips team! I’ve listened to many English podcasts, and I like yours the best! I need to use English for my job and Culips helps me speak using natural English."

Miae Kim , Seoul, South Korea  

"Thank you for your awesome job in the podcast, very well done. Your podcast are very useful study resources."

Edson Soares, Sorocaba, , Brazil  

This is a wonderful website that is a very cleverly designed to make learning fun! The topics tend to be of a light-hearted nature rather than serious subjects. With a very up beat approach they discuss idioms, vocabulary, expressions, slang and grammar. The length of the podcasts are at least 5 minutes or more, however, they are so interesting that the time goes by quickly. Downloading to an MP3 file is easy and the transcripts with quizzes and lots of extra material come up on a PDF file with no problem. You do have to register to get the transcripts, but minimal information is called for during registration.
