Welcome to Culips, a free English learning podcast!

Are you looking for a fun way to learn natural English, including idioms and slang? You can stop searching because now you’re here. Culips English as a second language (ESL) podcast is for people who want to have fun while learning natural, everyday English, focusing on idioms, expressions, and slang. Every week we have a new, free audio episode available on our site and through iTunes. In all our episodes, we always speak English as it’s actually used in day-to-day life, and we give you plenty of explanations of new or interesting terms along the way.

Our English language podcast is for learners of all levels and ages. Each episode takes you out of the classroom and introduces you to common slang, natural expressions, and interesting vocabulary. Culture is also an important part of Culips, and we want you to get to know us!

Talk to you soon,
Harp and Maura (Culips hosts)
