This is a natural conversation with teachers who are native English talking about the weather. It's important to note that this conversation was recorded in April 2012 after a period of particularly unusual bad weather. :) We had this conversation without any preparation, so what you hear is a completely normal conversation with native English speakers from Britain.

This is English conversation as it really happens in the UK - totally natural and not simplified, changed or made artificial to help English students.
This is not the kind of recording that you get in an English textbook (actors reading artificially from a script in an unnatural way).
You can listen to English as if you were living in England and were having a conversation with friends that are native speakers of English.

The people talking are British native speakers and also teachers at the school. They are chatting about everyday subjects, just like they would normally. That means that the conversation is completely natural and is not artificial in any way to help English students. This is British English conversation as it actually happens....it's not actors reading from a script like you have with the recordings from English textbooks. Soon, the podcasts will be available to download free from itunes so that you can listen on your phone or mp3 players.

Slang words are used everyday in normal conversation. In the table below there are lots of very common British slang words for you to learn from and then an explanation with a natural sounding example. You can be very good at speaking a language, but if you don't know any slang, then you can get really lost in a conversation with native speakers. Learning slang can be cool anyway because it can be amusing to find out what a word or phrase means and where it comes from. With British slang, my students usually find it very funny to hear these strange expressions.
