The official BBC Learning English app brings together all of your favourite lessons and presenters in one fantastic, simple-to-use package. It’s the best way to keep your English up to date!
Thank you to everyone for your positive comments and feedback.
This month (May) is going to make the app even better. We are introducing our first series for low level learners – English My Way. We also have a brilliant new series to help you speak more naturally – British Chat. This series has no script – it’s just ordinary people using real English to talk about everyday topics.
And don’t forget, you asked to be able to download our audio programmes. Every audio programme now has a download button so you can listen off-line.
So, whether you want to study grammar, improve your pronunciation, develop your English through topical new stories or learn the latest phrases to use in your everyday conversations, our app has the series for you.
Take us with you; we’ll always be there to help you become a brilliant English speaker.
The best way to learn a language is to practise a little bit every day. Our app helps you do that with daily updates of amazing, fun and topical lessons, transcripts and quizzes. Watch your English grow!
Features that will help you learn
Audio programmes that you can download. Watch or listen to each programme without using the text support. Then watch or listen again using the built-in transcripts and subtitles. Once you’ve practised your listening and reading skills, use the quizzes to test your understanding. The app will remember your scores so you can keep trying until you get the result you want.
When you’re listening to an audio lesson, the programme will keep playing in the background even if the screen is turned off. So you can be on the bus, travelling by train, flying, walking or running and still have the perfect lesson in your ear.
