NEW COURSE: “Introduction to the United States”

home_page_book_cover1.jpgWe are very happy to announce a new course available in the ESL Podcast Store: “Introduction to the United States.” This course is for anyone interested in learning more about the U.S., while improving their English.

We’ve taken the 100 questions asked on the U.S. citizenship test, the test taken by people who want to become an American citizen. However, we go far beyond the simple answers. We give explanations about how the U.S. government works, major events in U.S. history, and the people who helped create this country. Each explanation brings the facts about the history and stories behind the simple answers alive, making it easy to learn about the U.S. as you improve your English.

Learn more about “Introduction to the United States” here and you can listen to a sample by clicking on “Listen to a sample” after clicking on any of the course options.

We hope you enjoy this new course!

    Sure it should be as good as all the previous courses that you have done before. All my gratitude for your big effort to make such enormous task as this
    course to learn English and to know more about your wonderful country.
    I wish you all the best about it and if it is used by adults in southern California as said by Warren it will be a deserved point.
    Thanks a lot.

    It certainly sounds a great way to know more about the history of the United States .I’m very impressed by how a country like the US has become what it is today in so little time.Just think that the first documented European arrival on what would become the US mainland was the Spanish conquistador Juán Ponce de León on 1513 ,(only about 500 years ago) , whereas Europe has a modern history spanning millenniums of years.(Just a fact,modern humans entered the Iberian Peninsula,where Spain(my country) and Portugal are located,more than 35,000 years ago)
    But what I’m really looking forward to hearing (I hope)is another great “English trough stories”for advanced learners of English.(I’ve enjoyed listening to “Deadly Letters” very much while I was in bed right before going to sleep after a long day of work.So,same again,please.

    My greeting and salutation to my mentors Jeff and Luci,

    I don’t know if I can drop a decent and healthy line for you guys. I cannot put my thought together because I am still zoned out by the latest master piece of Jeff and Luci. I purchased the course 24 hours ago ,and I am half way through the course ;I am telling you it’s something. It is very educational and informative. All in all,It is overwhelming in so many good ways.

    In retrospect , I have tons of regrets in my life. Definitely, purchasing this course is not one of them. All I am saying is ,it’s worth every penny.

    Thanks jeff and Luci for your generosity.There are lots of English related podcasts out there , but what beats Jeff’s podcast that I don’t know.

    Actually, I always had in my mind what if you offered such course concerning American History and culture and now there it is!!!! Thank you so much!! I still haven’t bought it, but I have to since I know it will be so incredibly good to me.
    Very best Regards.
