Thinking in English Podcast!

What is Thinking in English?

Thinking in English is a podcast designed for English Learners who are fed up and frustrated with normal boring podcasts. Instead of talking about simple hobbies and food, Thinking in English aims to introduce and explain complex, interesting, and sometimes controversial topics and issues to English Learners!

As a language learner myself, I knew that so many people want to read, debate, and listen to current events, politics, science, philosophy, economics, and much more. Thinking in English delivers episodes on these topics in a clear and understandable way, with free transcripts and vocabulary lists!

I hope you enjoy listening!
