About
My name is Zdenek and I am a qualified English teacher from the Czech Republic. Back in 2013 I started this podcast to help myself achieve C2 level in speaking. Over the years, it has grown in popularity and now has its appreciative audience. On the podcast I often interview interesting people that I meet (often English native speakers), and talk about subjects that relate to my life. Sometimes I teach language, too. So buckle up and come along for the ride.

Episode 449 - Talking to HUGH DELLAR about UKRAINE

In this podcast, I talk to HUGH DELLAR, an English teacher, teacher trainer, materials writer, and a well-known proponent of the Lexical Approach in the world of English teaching. Most interviews Hugh does are about the Lexical approach, but he's also very vocal regarding the current conflict in Ukraine and that's what this episode is mainly about. We talk about Hugh's views on the war, his recent trip to Ukraine, the responsibility to speak out if you have a platform, Russia's nuclear threats, hypocrisy, whatabouterism, and much more. Hugh has his online school called the Lexical Lab. 👉Hugh's website: The Lexical Lab 👉 An example of Hugh's English Lesson 👉 A video version of this interview:  _______________________________________________________________________ 🏆 ENGLISH ACHIEVERS CHAMBER  The ULTIMATE SOLUTION to NOT living in an English-speaking country, not working with English-speaking people, and not having enough English-speaking friends.

Episode 446 - Admin and Stuff

On this podcast, which I have recorded live for my YouTube channel, I have a good old ramble with an undertone of cynicism.

Episode 437 - Why I Had to Quit Football to Became an English Teacher

This episode of Zdenek's English Podcast is a different kettle of fish. Damian, one of the members of the Achievers Chamber, decided to give me an unexpected and rather unique gift. He asked Chat GPT 4 to write a book about me and it's so impressive that I can't help but share it with you. The book is a moving story of how I had to quit football and somehow ended up becoming an English teacher instead. It's full of metaphors, analogies and high-level vocabulary which I'll later explain to you. Now, it's time to sit back, relax and enjoy the introductory chapter from "The Unplayed Symphony - A Football Lover's Guide to Teaching English." _________________________________________________________________________ 🏆 ENGLISH ACHIEVERS CHAMBER  The ULTIMATE SOLUTION to NOT living in an English-speaking country, not working with English-speaking people, and not having enough English-speaking friends.

Episode 427 - Controversial views of teacher Tamas on the British monarchy, Brexit, and Boris

On this episode of Zdenek's English Podcast, I talk to Tamas about all sorts of things, especially politics. Tamas is an English teacher whose background is half Hungarian and half British. We start off lightly talking about our messy rooms, but then we go on to talk about Brexit, Tamas explains why he thinks he’s unpatriotic, he also mentions the British queen that has recently passed away and ponders about the role of the monarchy in the UK. We go into other political issues and talk about some notorious political leaders in Europe and try to get to the bottom of what’s wrong with what they represent.

Episode 424 - Speaking to Orla about Cooking

This episode of the podcast features Orla. Orla is another very friendly person I met in Ireland while I was teaching at a UCD summer camp in July 2022. Despite working together for only a short time, we had a few beers with each other, played a fun board game, and most importantly, I learnt that Orla has a very popular Instagram account where she makes great cooking videos.  And that's why, a few days after I came back from Dublin, I decided to invite her to Zdenek's English Podcast and we recorded a cool episode about cooking.  Follow Orla's Instagram account here: https://www.instagram.com/irish_mammy_cooks/ The video from this episode: https://youtu.be/zzdHZOSs1nE  _________________________________________________________________________ "Achievers Chamber" monthly membership fee: 🏆 Basic membership: 4 Euros 🏆 Silver Membership: 8 Euros 🏆 Gold membership: 20 Euros 👉Detailed information on all benefits: https://drive.google.com/file/d/16NAIvLXJBZxOwdb4WmRckjst6Oj2nFpV/view?usp=sharing    👉 To become a member of the "Achievers Chamber" Discord group, email me at [email protected], or through any social media - you'll find the icons on my website www.teacherzdenek.com Just say "Hi Zdenek, I want to become a member" and I'll send you further instructions.  ______________________________________________________________________________ 👉 Instagram My Instagram profile is full of football vocabulary posts, and funny videos. 👉 ZEP Facebook - Join Zdenek's English Podcast Facebook group, like, share, and comment on Facebook. 👉 Apple Podcasts - Write a brief review of ZEP on Apple Podcasts to help more people find this podcast. 👉 Teacherzdenek.com  - My website where you can fill in the form to join my mailing list to receive cool information, videos, and offers about English through Role Plays group course.  👉 Teacher Zdenek  - My YouTube channel, every Wednesday a "Live English Lesson" with a real student, and every Monday a football show with cool guests called "Learn English with Football". _________________________________________________________________________ #englishpodcast #learnenglish #englishlistening

Episode 400 - Celebrating with Luke’s English Podcast

This is a milestone episode 400 of Zdenek's English Podcast. To mark the occasion, I invited the one and only Luke Thompson, the author of Luke's English Podcast. Luke is the father of pretty much all podcasts for English learners, including Zdenek's English Podcast, which I started back in 2013. For this special episode, I prepared a quiz. And it's this quiz that Luke is going to take. How much does he know about the influence Luke' English Podcast has had on Zdenek's English Podcast? There's only one way to find out. I hope you enjoy yourselves.

Episode 396 - Rambling with Rambling Raspberry

Until this episode, there were only two countries where all previous 395 episodes of Zdenek's English Podcast had been recorded, the Czech Republic and the United Kingdom. That changed when I went to Poland to visit a student of mine and a listener of this podcast Nina. Nina and I did this podcast together in a cosy Polish pub, so prepare for some background noise. On the podcast we mainly talk about Nina's own podcast called Rambling Raspberry which whose creation had been inspired by Luke's English Podcast as well as Zdenek's English Podcast.  You can listen to Rambling Raspberry on your Podbean app or here: https://ninaraspberry.podbean.com/ A 32-minute mini lesson for ZEP patrons which uses examples from this episode focuses on the word stress in English - specifically on unstressed first syllables.   ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 👉 Become a ZEP patron - become a PATRON of Zdenek’s English Podcast to get a MINI LESSON with target language every week and occasionally have a live YouTube lesson with me.  👉 ZEP Live Shows - listen to Zdenek’s English Podcast live every Sunday at 9pm CET GMT+1.

Episode 394 - Love Island

This episode features a friend of mine Olivia who I met in London at a summer camp about 2 and a half years ago. We first talk about our experience of working in Wembley and then move on to the topic of two extremely popular British reality TV shows "Love Island" and "Naked Attraction".  I can imagine that some of you might consider some of the stuff we talk about a bit cringy, controversial, and over the top, but as you know this podcast likes to explore different topics on this show, so please stay open-minded if you can and don't judge us too harshly.  I personally think Olivia is cool and one of the reason I love the UK is its liberal values and people like her. Moreover, this episode is quite frankly full of cool vocabulary and slang expressions, so I believe it's a real gem in terms of the language richness.  The mini lesson for patrons is published simultaneously. This time I explore the swearwords that appeared in this episode.  ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 👉 Become a ZEP patron - become a PATRON of Zdenek’s English Podcast to get a MINI LESSON with target language every week and occasionally have a live YouTube lesson with me.  👉 ZEP Live Shows - listen to Zdenek’s English Podcast live every Sunday at 9pm CET GMT+1.

Episode 389 - Taking the CELTA course with Michael

Michael, who has been on this podcast before to talk Dungeons and Dragons (episode 372), has decided to take a CELTA. What's that, I hear you asking? CELTA stands for the "Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages", and it's essentially a well-known qualification for English teachers. I had taken this exam myself a while back and recorded a series of episodes about it (episodes 125-128). How did Michael do? Did he enjoy the course? Did he find it challenging? What were the things he learnt? Was there anything he wasn't keen on? What grade did Michael get in the end? And how does our experience compare? Listen to this episode to find out.  If you like Zdenek's English Podcast, why not become a patron to support me and get a mini lesson (extra podcast) which focuses on selected target language from regular episodes, including this one? You could also just share this podcast with your friends or write a review on Apple Podcasts. Every little helps.

Episode 380 - Tennis, Catch-up with Nrup, The Vaccine

In this episode, I talk to Nrup again. He joins about 17 minutes into the episode, though, so I have to improvise the beginning at first. This is when I talk about a long tennis match that had played prior to the live podcast recording and which almost prevented me from being on time for it. With Nrup we talk about how he has been, social deprivation during the pandemic, Nrup's studies at medical university, the Covid vaccine and our perspective on it, and towards the end we also happen to learn surprising news in Nrup's life.  If you are a patron, a mini lesson where I take a closer look at selected vocabulary from this episode follows.  ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________ 👉 Become a ZEP patron - become a PATRON of Zdenek’s English Podcast to get a MINI LESSON with target language every week.  👉 ZEP Live Shows - listen to Zdenek’s English Podcast live every Sunday at 9pm CET GMT+1.

Episode 372 - Dungeons and Dragons with Michael the Shaman

It was a huge honour to feature a really cool guest in this episode - Michael the Shaman - who had previously appeared in episode 718 of Luke's English Podcast, which happens to be in my top 5 Luke's English Podcast episodes.  We briefly talked about what it was like for Michael to be on Luke's podcast, we discussed how Michael has learnt English playing games with native speakers, specifically Dungeon's and Dragons. Michael explained to us what DnD is and why it has such appeal. We went through a lot of different aspects of this game and gave examples to help listeners understand it better  I was truly humbled by Michael's incredible English, and it was a fantastic opportunity to pick his brain about the phenomenal Dungeons and Dragons. Personally, I see an incredible amount of potential in DnD for learners of English. A mini lesson for patrons focusing on verbs we used in this episode will follow soon.  ________________________________________________________________________________________ 👉 Become a ZEP patron - become a PATRON of Zdenek’s English Podcast to get a MINI LESSON with target language every week.  👉 ZEP Live Shows - listen to Zdenek’s English Podcast live every Sunday at 9pm CET GMT+1.

Episode 367 - The Recorder Story - part 2

This is part 2 of arguably the most ridiculous venture I have ever undertaken on Zdenek's English Podcast - an improvised story called the Recorder Story. It is a sequel to episode 212 which I recorded about 3 years ago.  The story is 100 percent improvised, and I genuinely did not have the slightest idea where I was going with it. The main characters are: Zdenek, Gandalf, and a squirrel with a speech impediment. The mini lesson for patrons is published simultaneously with this episode, and it focuses on how we express contrast in English. ________________________________________________________________________________________ 👉 Become a ZEP patron - become a PATRON of Zdenek’s English Podcast to get a MINI LESSON with target language every week.  👉 ZEP Live Shows - listen to Zdenek’s English Podcast live every Sunday at 9pm CET GMT+1.

This time I speak to Erin from Dublin, Ireland. Erin is a fellow English teacher and a brilliant podcaster. She is also very passionate about the Lord of the Rings books and films, which happens to be the topic of this episode.   Here is a selection of questions I ask in the episode: What's so appealing about the Lord of the Rings story? How does Erin compare the films and the books? Which of the characters does she like the most? And what does Erin think about the Game of Thrones?   Erin's podcast is a great resource for English teachers. By the way, I should be featuring on her podcast in the coming weeks as she invited me to talk about board games.

Episode 359 - Speaking to Teacher Rod about Disability

This is an interview with Rod from Brazil. Rod is a great English teacher who also happens to have his own Youtube channel called Rod the Brazilian teacher. Rod is a very inspiring person. He has achieved a lot despite (and because of) his disability, which I chose as the main topic of the episode. I ask Rod questions about what it is like being disabled and what sort of difficulties one has to face and how this can actually make one stronger. We also talk what it is like being a no-native English teacher.  Here's the interview I did for Rod's Youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wUmrLvHsdDE.  ________________________________________________________________________________________ 👉 Become a ZEP patron - become a PATRON of Zdenek’s English Podcast to get a MINI LESSON with target language every week.  👉 ZEP Live Shows - listen to Zdenek’s English Podcast live every Sunday at 9pm CET GMT+1.

In this episode, I talk to good old Clare (actually she is pretty young). This must be the worst description to an episode I've ever written. Anyway, how is everyone? I'm sure you remember my friend Clare, don't you? There are quite a few episodes in the archive with her, some recorded online, some in the UK.  The main focus of the episode is Clare's job of a history teacher. What is it like to teach history in the UK? What does one have to do to become a history teacher?  What's Clare's favourite history period? Are there any challenges of teaching history? This is much more in the episode. By the way, a mini lesson focusing on an important aspect of pronunciation follows so don't miss it. This is the last time non-patrons get this.

In this episode I revisit the presentation I delivered in Speak up London school back in 2019. The idea was to show my teacher colleagues how to use board games in the English language classroom.  I've been using board games in my English lessons as a teacher for a long time, and I was always interested in finding ways how to justify the games in terms of methodology. Whether you're an English teacher or learner, if you want to find out more about how this approach works, give this episode a listen.  For anyone who is interested in joining the course or try one lesson for free any time soon, I have some cool information.

Episode 283 - Nurcan Baysal

This episode is dedicated to Nurcan Baysal who is a Kurdish journalist and a human rights activist from Turkey. Few months ago I taught her in an advanced class here in London. A week later I went to a panel discussion with her in Free Word in Farringdon. I had been invited to this event by my colleague Billie, an English teacher, who also features in this episode.  Essentially, the episode is a series of monologues and dialogues with Billie and also my cousin Honza who as we know knows a lot about history. We try to offer our view on censorship in Turkey, explain who the Kurds are, and try to break down what has been going on in Turkey.  I hope we managed to do justice to Nurcan's unrelenting effort and work. I don't normally do heavier topics like this on my podcast, but I think if approached in the right way, they can have a powerful effect on the audience and I am convinced this was the right thing to do.

Episode 262 - Breaking the Glass Ceiling with Marek Kiczkowiak

In this episode, I speak to Marek Kiczkowiak, Ph.D. who is the founder of TEFL Equity Advocates and Academy. Marek is something like Martin Luther King of English Language Teaching. Essentially, he strives to obliterate the so-called "native speaker bias". In other words, he is fighting for the rights of non-native English teachers. He does that by researching this topic academically and finding some very compelling evidence. You can get a taste of his arguments in this episode. As you all know, this topic has highly personal relevance to me so having Marek on ZEP is a massive moment not only for me but also for the podcast itself.  ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________  Facebook - join Zdenek's English Podcast Facebook group, like, share and comment on Facebook teacherzdenek.com - my website (work in progress)  I-tunes - write a brief review on I-tunes and help more people find this podca

We also talk about English banter and how non-British people find it difficult to get it.   _________________________________________________________________________________________  Facebook - join Zdenek's English Podcast Facebook group, like, share and comment on Facebook teacherzdenek.com - my website (work in progress)  I-tunes - write a brief review on I-tunes and help more people find this podcast

Episode 259 - It's Not That Deep Podcast (Doctor Who episode) - Pronunciation Analysis

Do you remember Clare without "i"? She has featured on ZEP several times before. I wanted to give you a taste of her new podcast "It's Not That Deep" so I came up with an idea. Essentially, I took 10 minutes from one of her episodes and decided to pick apart the language for you with a special emphasis on pronunciation. If you like Doctor Who, then you will be pleased to hear that the chosen episode from Not That Deep podcast is about this popular British TV show. As for the pronunciation analysis, I will be looking at some individual sounds, stress, elision, and more. One more thing. I think I mistakenly called Clare's podcast Not That Deep, but it is in fact called It's Not That Deep.

Episode 258 - That's a Question with PP1

This episode was recorded during class while playing a game where we ask each other simple questions. The episode features a lot of guests so there some talking over each other, butr generally speaking it should be well understood. The tone is very light-hearted. I also have one important disclaimer. during the episode, one of the students keeps mentioning probably the most atrocious man in the history of mankind Hitler in a slightly joking way. I know this is not a laughing matter, but there is a context to this and I would like to explain it. One of the most popular games we sometimes play during my board game meet-ups is a hidden role game called Secret Hitler (I recommend googling it) and it is the game he was refering to during the episode. We do not promote the condone actions of this individual in any way, shape or form, quite the opposite, we condemn them. I just felt like it was necessary to clarify.  _________________________________________________________________________________________  Facebook - join Zdenek's English Podcast Facebook group, like, share and comment on Facebook teacherzdenek.com - my website (work in progress)  I-tunes - write a brief review on I-tunes and help more people find this podcast

This episode is a conversation class with my student Olga. I put her on the spot a bit by coming to our private lesson and asking her to record a podcast interview with me about her profession.

Episode 255 - A Friendly Chat with Salem, Rubick and Rami

This episode was supposed to be published for patrons only, but I changed my mind about it because it is too funny and cool to have only a few people listen to it.  Why was Rubick almost arrested in his week in the Czech Republic? What is Salem's superpower? How did Rami lose 40 kilos in 2 years? What do the guys think of each another? Which one of them has anger issues? Which one is a history freak? Listen to this episode to out.

In this episode, I read out and respond to ten messages/emails I have recieved in the last few months. Most of them praise my work I do with this podcast, some of them are a reaction to my appearance on Luke's English Podcast, some offer a unique insight into my listeners' lifes and ambitions which are often highly relatable to me personally, and there is even an email which helps me identify my own inadequacies.  _________________________________________________________________________________________  Facebook - join Zdenek's English Podcast Facebook group, like, share and comment on Facebook teacherzdenek.com - my website (work in progress)  I-tunes - write a brief review on I-tunes and help more people find this podcast Email to [email protected] - ask me a question, give me feedback, tell me what you think of the show

Episode 249 - Binominal Phrases

In this episode, I talk to my Claire. This is a light-hearted chat, but make no mistake, it also has a very thoughful educational motive. Essentially, I and Claire teach you selected binominal phrases such as little by little, ups and downs, by and large, and many more.   The quality of the recording is not ideal since it was recorded in a café and naturally the recorder picked up a lot of background noice, but it is audible, neverthless. _________________________________________________________________________________________  Facebook - join Zdenek's English Podcast Facebook group, like, share and comment on Facebook teacherzdenek.com - my website (work in progress)  I-tunes - write a brief review on I-tunes and help more people find this podcast Email to [email protected] - ask me a question, give me feedback, tell me what you think of the show

Episode 248 - Glottal Stop

    In this episode I take a light-hearted approach to teach a pronunciation phenomenon called glottal stop /ʔ/- a sound that is often used in spoken English to replace sound /t/.     Phonetics and this sound in particular is something I have been interested in for a while and I am delighted to talk about it here on ZEP.  I will present to you a lot of examples of words (and sometimes not just words) where this sound appears in English language and also as a bonus I will do some tongue twisters.

Episode 247 - A Chat with Dustin from Board Gaming with Education Podcast

    It's been a while since I had another podcaster on my podcast. So I was very pleased when Dustin from Board Gaming with English (now renamed into Board Gaming with Education) agreed to come on to ZEP. Dustin is an English teacher from Nebraska in the U.S. who is currently working at a university in Taipei (Taiwan).  This is a no nonsense episode in which you can naturally hear us talk about our favourite board games we use in an English class, such as Codenames, Werewolf, Trapwords, Pandemic. We try to justify the approach of teaching English through board games and explain why we think it has such a great appeal.  Dustin tells us about his podcast, what kind of episodes his listeners can enjoy, and how he got the idea of starting it.  --- Facebook - join Zdenek's English Podcast Facebook group, like, share and comment on Facebook I-tunes - write a brief review on I-tunes and help more people find this podcast Email to [email protected] - ask me a question, give me feedback, tell me what you think of the show

Episode 245 - Language Analysis of my Interview on Luke's English Podcast

   In this episode I reflect on the experience of featuring in episodes 569 and 570 of Luke's English Podcast. I will tell you how I felt before, during, and after the interview with Luke, and generally explain how much this meant to me.     The second part of this episode is an attempt to self-correct some of the more glaring mistakes I made in part 1 of the interview. Infamously, this episode has the Fixer in it - a voice in my head whose purpose is to help with the realisation of my mistakes, but who often does so in a slightly insulting way.

Episode 242 - Adjective Football

   This episode was recorded on a train last winter. I kept postponing publishing it because I always thought it was a bit weird. I have now changed my mind, though.     It features my good friend Nrup from India. We were travelling from Podebrady to Prague and we decided to kill time by playing a well-known word game and recording our struggle as a ZEP episode. I wanted to raise the challenge so I modified the rules of the game in such way that we were supposed to use adjectives only. Especially because of me, we lost the game in a ludicrous fashion.

Episode 241 - 5 Bad and 5 Good Things about the Czech Republic and Czechs

   This episode is dedicated to Czech people. I attempt to give you a balanced view of what it is like to be Czech by presenting my top 5 good and bad things about our country and its people.     There might be some contentious subjects that I bring up. Please understand that these are all my personal views and I am always open to a debate about everything I argued there. I am even prepared to change my beliefs if you convince me.  In this episode I talk about the Czech president and why I have very little respect for him, the historical reasons Czech people have low confidence, are cynical, xenophobic, and not very patriotic, Czech beer, why I am glad that we are situated in the middle of Europe next to Germany, and more.

Episode 239 - Shedding Light on Brexit

In this episode I talk to Nick, a student of politics from England, about Brexit. Nick is currently in the middle of writing an essay on Brexit and thus has some fresh insight into the whole subject. What is Brexit? Why did the UK vote Brexit? Is there a deal? Is there a chance this could all be reverted? What are the current options? This conversation might be slightly geeky and you might have to google names of politicians, but I think if you are into politics or care about the future of Europe, you will enjoy it.  Language wise this episode is very rich indeed. I personally learnt the expression "A Pot Calling a Kettle Black".

Episode 238 - A Class with Barbara (part 2)

This is part 2 of the class with Barbara. We actually start off this episode by speaking German, which is kinda hilarious. Barbara tells us what it was like living in Austria and compares that to her life in the Czech Republic as well. Later we touch upon Brexit as we talk about Barbara's future plans. And last but not least, Barbara talks about the TV series she is keen on. There were slight technical problems caused by full memory of the recording device which also resulted in an abrupt end of this episode.

She also spent 1 year in France studying French and 2 years in Austria studying German. And this year she is in the Czech Republic doing a bit of Czech for a change.     We talk about her life journey, challenges of learning and forgetting languages, wearing uniforms in the British school and playing field hocked, and more. Part 2 will follow after this.

Firstly, I tell you some information about the meet-up, how it was organised, where it happened, and how it compares to the previous one organised a year before during which I had met Luke Thompson of Luke's English Podcast but failed to meet everyone else.    As one of the main attraction were board games, I will tell you a bit more about the games we played a well.     And then finally I conducted short interviews with each participant about asking about LEP. and This is in my humble opinion by far the most interesting part of the whole episode.

On top of that, she has studied in the USA and has now completed her premedical course in the Czech Republic.

Admitedly the discussion is rather geeky at times, but Nick is a very well-spoken person with a nice clear accent therefore even if you know nothing about Japanese language, you can benefit just to listening to his English.

Episode 216 - Chinese and Russian Stereotypes

    In this episode, I talk to my students Fu aka Cloudy and Nikita. The former is Chinese and the latter Russian. We go through some common stereotypes about their own countries, and discuss whether we think they are true or false. Due to openinmindedness of the guys, we manage to do this successfully even though the topics themselves may appear slightly controversial at first sight. Overall this is a lighthearted and fun chat.     Are Chinese products of low quality? Are the Chinese polite? Can they speak English? Are they good at maths? Are they excellent martial artists? Will they eat anything? Is there equality between men and women in China? Are the Chinese all controlled by the government? Do all Russians have ties to the mafia? Are they all good hackers? Do bears walk the streets? Is it cold everywhere in Russia? Do all Russians drink vodka? Do Russian women dress well? And who the hell are Babushkas and why there are so many of them there?

These seem to be some the most challenging sounds for most non-native speaker learners of English. The first half of this is my the theory presentation, while for the second half I intended to throw in various examples. However, that turned out to be a bit of self-indulging comedy show.

Episode 212 - The Recorder Story

   I have always been impressed by the Pink Gorilla Story episode (episode 125) of Luke's English Podcast and ever since I started doing my podcast I have dreamt of trying my hand at an improvised story like that. It has always been an objective that seemed unlikely to achieve especially because I was never able to keep it engaging and make it funny enough. I think I tried several times in the past and it just wasn't doing it for me. Partly it was because I put too much presssure on myself and had high expectations, which made me alightly too nervous when recording.     It appears, finally, I may have managed to record something which seems to at least partially live up to the standards that I set myself. Strangely enough, I had no idea I was gonna do an improvised story. I just felt like recording a ramble episode instead but somehow I indeed ended up recording a story not disimilar to Luke's, at least in terms of the rules for doing this. I promise you, I had no script, and it is rather silly, and not finished, but hey, it's mine, it's original, my precious! The main character of the story is, quite surprisingly, my recorder. I didn't want to feature myself in it because that felt too similar to Luke's PGS in terms of the narration style, but at some point I got carried away and became part of the story, and I believe even turned into the main protagonist. Gandalf also makes an appearance, and the story starts itself in my own room. I wonder what you will think about this. It's definitely one of the most challenging things I have ever attempted to do here on ZEP.

Episode 210 - Being Sociable

This is a continuation of the interview with Key which was published in episode 208. The episode features Kay from Ireland herself, but also Maria from Macedonia, and Nrup from India. In a nutshell, it is a bit of a random chat involving interesting stories, especially the ones with Kay's priest brother quoting Starwars during his sermons, and how she is "sociable" with strangers on the Prague metro, and last but not least Nrup rining the bells of random houses.  I have to say that at times I was not exactly on the same wavelength as everyone else due to the fact that I had been drinking a bit while everyone else was ordering non-alcoholic drinks. This lead to me producing some not so funny dad jokes and terrible puns which didn't seem to be appreciated as much as I expected, which made me feel suprised, and little bit stupid. Frankly, later when I listened to the recording, I realized that I coudn't really blame the guys. Anyway, I am publishing this because if you ignore my jokes, overall, the episode has a lot of lingustic value to it and there are some funny anecdetoes as well.

Episode 209 - Two Improvised Recordings

This episode is a hodge-podge of 2 seemingly unrelated recordings. However, they have one thing in common - they are both improvised. In both cases there was absolutely no script whatsoever. The first part is a monologue ramble, which is not exactly information heavy. It was recorded because I had an urge to speak English as I was lying in my bed before mz bed time. Do not expect anmything profound in that one.  The second one features a pre-intermediate student of mine, who is a doctor. We recorded a simple fun conversation which revolves around the topic of sport. As it sometimes happens here on Zdenek's English Podcast, at one point we coudn't resist to speak German.

Currently, she is working as an English teacher in the Czech Republic. What is more, she has also taught German, Spanish, Dutch and Irish, which makes her a polyglot. If this is not enough, she is also a stand-up comedian.

We also talk about Jack's univesity studies, his interests, and notably Galaxy teaches us some useful words from Northern Irish dialect. In additiona to all of this, you will actually hear me speak French in this episode. When I say "speak", I may be a bit exxagerating.

   This episode features Dominik, a friend of Mirek's. To remind you, Mirek was on the podcast in episode 97 - Iceskating with a Lifeguard (recorded about 3 years ago). As a coincidence, Dominik has recently started working for a company where I teach English so I became his English teacher. I learnt that Dominik and Mirek had worked in the USA as lifeguards together and this is what a major part of this interview is about - his 3 experiences of working in the USA as a lifeguard.     Dominik studied political science at a university so we also talk about Czech political elections trying to compare it to the American one. In the interview Dominik actually managed to predict who would win the election here. I wish I had made a bet back there.   The last part of the interview is about Dominik's attempt to live and work in Canada. There is also a love story involved.

As you know, these days I don't publish episodes which are over 1 hour long. Unfortunately, I accidentally published the entire episode last time, even though it was meant to be divided into 2 part. It should explain why the jingle was missing.    When I told this to Marija, eager learner of English she is, it was actually herself who suggested meeting up to record part 2 (and part 3 which will be published soon). In this episode Maria reacts to the comments we received from the listeners about part 1, Marija answers the question whether she actually listened to part 1 herself, she talks about her impression of Podebrady, she also mentions her uncle who lives in Detroit, and we end the episode going through adjectives which are associated with the zodiac sign of Aries.

   As a response to the mistakes I have made as a podcaster in the last few episodes, I bring you the second sequel to a Flashcards Vocabulary series. I went out of my way with this one because I recorded more than 50 minutes while lying in my bed completely improvising the whole thing. I hope you will like and you won't judge me too harshly for going off on a few tangents, making a few mistakes here and there and trying to fix the blunders by improvising and using other techniques involving humour.     In this episode I explain the latest issues I have had, I thank Luke for is help with redirecting the podcast, I mention my favourite podcasts, I teach some grammar, talk about my lessons and how I ended up teaching English to native speakers, and of course I talk about beer, I also talk about some controversial stuff, I say things that I will probably regret saying later on, and most importantly I attempt to clarify expressions starting from e, f, and g that I currently have in the deck of the flashcard app I use.  Damn, I forgot the jingle. Who cares :)

Episode 185 - Luke's Criminal Past

It wouldn't be a proper visit of London if I didn't get to see Luke and do some podcasting with him. This time I decided to find out a bit more about his criminal past. Luke was surprisingly open about everything and let the cat out of the bag on several occasions, although to be fair, some of the things he owns up to don't seem to be true. But it might as well be because Luke, as we all know, is the creator and an experienced player of the so called "Lying Game". So who knows. You will be the judge of that. Have fun in this special last episode recorded during my work-related visit of London in July 2017. Oh, and have a pen ready, you might wanna jot down some useful idioms to do with crime while listening.

Episode 172 - On Travelling with Monika and her Crew

In this episode, I meet up again with Monika. Just to remind you, episode 90 called On Shopping with Monika, which I recorded in London a couple years ago, is according to the stats I have at disposal the most popular "non-Luke" episode of all times on this podcast. Monika is my university classmate and a good friend. This time we met up in Pardubice, Czech Republic and we were also accompanied by her co-workers Dovile from Lithuania and Ludovica from Italy. We were drinking alcohol during this episode and it involves some explicit vocabulary as well as a few dirty jokes. Similarly to the episodes, I recorded with Eva and Mark, there is a lot of background noise. The theme of this episode is travelling. The idea is that I ask questions related to our context, let my guests answer and then respond using some pre-selected idioms related to travelling. But often we just end up having fun bantering with each other and occasionally complain about the state of things.

This is the second part of the discussion with Shaun, my native speaker friend who I met through playtesting my board game called Kingdoms of Deceit. In this episode we talk about this game. We explain what it is, and how you play it. Shaun will tell you what he particularly likes about the game as well. We also invite you to join this wonderful community of online board gamers where you can get to know a lot of native speakers and practice your English with them while having fun. If you are up for it, we even encourage you to try out Kingdoms of Deceit with us.

Episode 148 - A Chat with Shaun (part 1 - Brexit)

This is a highly requested episode which I recorded with my friend Shaun, a native speaker from England. This particular part is devoted to Brexit, a decision of the UK to leave the EU, which shook up the country and pretty much shocked the whole Europe. What are some possible implications for the UK? How does a member of young adult generation feel about this? Shaun has a lot to say. Don't forget to tune in to part two in which we will talk about my game Kingdoms of Deceit.

Episode 147 - Tattooing & Handball

This episode is an improvised lesson. It features two students of mine, Valentin from Ukraine and Mina from Serbia. The former is a rising star of tattoo art and the latter a former professional handball player. This episode's theme is therefore tattooing and handball. If you want to know what it is like to become a tattoo artist, how it feels to make your first tattoo, Valentin will provide you with the answers in this episode. There is some occasional ramble such as us when we try to speculate about possibility to implement tattoos as an intricate way to cheat during exams as well. Mina's passion of handball was cut off due to aninjury, however he has a lot of stories to tell. Especially about his life in France. What is it like to grow up in France, to learn French? Mina will tell you. In the end we also managed to find a connection between tattooing and sport to draw this episode to a close in a stylish way. I hope you will like it.

Episode 146 - Hexagonal Talk (Infinitive vs. Gerund)

Hello listeners, sometimes I like to improvise my classes and sometimes I improvise episodes of Zdenek's English podcast, too. And sometimes these two happen simultaneously. Yesterday, I was teaching a lesson on gerunds and infinitives. There is one free-style activity I like to do to conclude this grammar chapter. And I asked my students whether they would be up for doing this live for the podcast. They unanimously said yes. So if you want to find out more about verb patterns I suggest that you listen to the episode of this podcast. There is a lot of banter and laughter involved. Get ready for some twist and turns, and revelations, too. The last but not the least, you will find out how you should never pronounce "can't". I suppose I should warn you that there is some explicit content but it is all used for educational purposes. P.S We are not alcoholics and I do not ask my students for bribes before the exams.

Episode 145 - Hanging out with Kevin in Podebrady

It had been a while since the last native speaker on the podcast and that's why about a month ago I took my friend Kevin to a pub in Podebrady (in the photo) to do something about this. The entire conversation was unprepared and we resort to ramble here and there. I made couple of really bad jokes in my attempt to be funny while having conversation with a British person. However, there are some interesting topics we go through as well such as how I met Kevin, board games, Kevin's plans of becoming a doctor and finding himself a Czech bride, the city of Bath and it's mysteries, learning English and much more.

Episode 144 - The Speed-dating Story & Clarifying Conditionals

The main course of this podcast episode is me reading out a real life experience of attending a speeddating event. Some time ago I wrote a story to teach conditionals in my upper-intermediate class. For those of you who understand, it's basically a guided discovery. I decided to use the same material to records a ZEP episode. The full package includes a story from my real life, an in-depth grammar analysis in which I look at all types of conditionals, tips for teachers and also a request to test out (by print&play) a cool RPG social deduction card game called Blacksmith which I have been working on for the past few months.

Episode 142 - Musing with Peter (part 1)

This is another episode with a student of mine. These days I prefer killing more birds with one stone. Petr has actually appeared on the podcast before in the episode called Luke's Roleplays Reborn. We delve into various topics some of which I claim to know nothing about such as women, cars, happiness and also Star Wars. Anyway, see for yourself.

Episode 141 - Interview with Zuzka (part 2 - AZ Game)

This is the second part of the interview with Zuzka. From the feedback I got from you I deduce that you thoroughly enjoyed part one. In this one we embark upon a simple word game which has already been employed in this podcast before. While going through the words that come to mind, I tried to look at some aspects of the language. such as minimal pairs in pronunciation. I might have said a few things inaccurately in the episode as regards the geography. so I hope you forgive me.

Episode 140 - Vote for me in LEP Photo Competition

The time has come to test the loyalty of the Zeppers. As you know not long ago Luke launched a cool brand new competition called Luke's English Podcast photo competition. Despite the fiasco in the previous competition in which we were sending in our podcasts, I entered this one as well. I have sent in a photo of me listening to the podcast while cycling to work in rather freezing conditions. I have seen the photos of all the competitors and I have to admit that am up against some tough opposition. That's why I am asking you, my loyal listeners, to vote for my image and help me get a decent place in this prestigious competition. I came up with my top ten reasons (I might have accidentally done just top 9 but nobody needs to know that!) why you should vote for me to help you decide. Even if I don't manage to convince you, I will appreciate if you have a listen to this episode "just for the hell of it". I was drinking beer while recording this episode so it should definitely be taken with a grain of salt. And sugar, too!

Episode 138 - An English Lesson with my Chinese Students

This year I am teaching a group of Chinese students. From Asia I have only taught some Saudis before. Overall, I have to say that teaching the Chinese is an amazing experience. I thought you might be interested in having people from this country on the podcast, actually hearing their accent and relate to the struggle of learning a foreign language so I kindly asked them if they would be up for recording an episode with me as a part of our lesson and guess what? They gave me a go-ahead. Unfortunately this recording has been marred by a few negatives. First I speak too much in it. I am sure the Cambridge academics wouldn't approve of the way I teach as it undoubtedly doesn't correlate with the vastly recognised communicative approach of teaching. To justify this, the group is predominantly pre-intermediate thus for some of the students to produce a longer stretch of language poses a challenge. I tried to ask loads of questions to make up for this and keep the recording the pace and momentum of the recording. Second, for some reason, every time any of the Chinese students speaks, their voice is considerably quieter than mine. This is probably due to the fact I didn't put the recorder close enough to their mouths and also they are a bit shy and they somewhat behaved in a modest way as well. Despite this I am convinced that this episode is worth listening to as it offers a different outlook on learning English. It also gives you a chance to finally listen to a Chinese accent on my podcast. And last but not least, you can enjoy my struggle of trying to pronounce Chinese names, which I think is particularly hilarious.

Episode 137 - Farewell 2015

Hello everyone, it has been ages since my last episode. In fact, I recorded one on 25 December last year but only managed to get round to the publishing now. I hope you won't be disappointed that this episode is thus slightly out-of -date. In it I am looking at statistics of year 2015, and simply attempting to sum up this year in terms of the podcasting..

Episode 134 - My Take on Events in Paris

In this episode I talk about the horrific events of terrorist attacks in Paris which happened on 13 November 2015. I mention some common opinions that people I know have shared on FB. Obviously like always this is bound to polarize European society who is increasingly becoming anti-Islamic. I tried to be as objective as possible, taking into consideration as many aspects as I could. I apologize if your views exactly relate to mine. I also tried to reflect the takes of my friends and Czech people in general.
