Welcome to Thinking in English!

Hello! Welcome to Thinking in English, thank you for reading my blog, and I hope you enjoy my content!

Thinking in English is a podcast for intermediate and advanced English learners. After countless students complained to me about finding accessible and suitable resources to help reach the next level in their language learning journey, I decided to do something about it myself.

The basic principle behind Thinking in English is that I want you all to develop the ability to “think” using English, “contemplate” different ideas in a foreign language, and perhaps even “learn” in English. In fact – that is a really important point. Once you get to an advanced level of English, studying “English” is no longer the best way to improve. I know from personal experience that textbooks, language podcasts, and even most language teachers are not good at introducing advanced topics.

Do you want to learn how to talk about introductions, hobbies, or what you did on the weekend? Or do you want to learn how to talk about why the Taliban retook Afghanistan, whether the death penalty should still be used, and how humanity conquered the smallpox disease?

Well…. if you think the second option sounds better, Thinking in English is for YOU!!

Each week, I release episodes on topics ranging from politics, international relations, and economics, to current affairs, science, and advanced vocabulary. Each episode is written using an advanced/native level of English, but delivered with clear pronunciation. You also have access to a full transcript and the most difficult vocabulary is defined before each episode!

Let’s learn to Think in English together!
