A daily podcast (approx 3-4 min) where I introduce two English words, explain, and use the words in example sentences. And there is a weekly recap on the 10 words of this week. Monday through Friday I introduce new words like adamant, erroneous, insipid, lethargy, etc, and on Saturday I review last weeks’ words. It is just vocabulary, no chitchat, to the point, short and powerful.

I am a writer and I decided to download this podcast to improve my vocabulary. In the past, I have bought many books on vocabulary, but none of them helped me as much as this podcast. The host, Jan Folmer, makes learning the new words easy and fun! I highly recommend this podcast.
