In today’s episode, I’d like to share a challenge that I decided to do after hearing about it in one of the podcasts I follow. So I’ll share my experience with you. And also at the end of the episode, we have the Repeat After Me segment.

But first, let me quickly tell you about the English Made Simple Challenge.

Alrighty, so you as you know I’ve updated the Audio Book “How To Simplify A Conversation” – when you download this Audio Book you’ll also get access to my 3-Day Email Course. The 3-Day Email course is Free. It’s also practical and actionable. It’s so easy even my grandma can do this.

Go to to get your Audio Book “How To Simplify A Conversation”

After you complete the mini email course you’ll have an opportunity to join my new Speaking Challenge called: TheConvoStarter – 21 Conversation Starters in 21 days.

It’s a new challenge, I’m running here.

It is simple and practical. The way it works is you’ll go out into the real world and talk to real people in English.

Yes, that’s right.

Real people.

The whole idea of this challenge is to get you to speak with others in English and also to get you out of your comfort zone.

It focuses on practical, actionable and simple phrases that you can use to ignite a simple conversation with anyone you meet in real life!

Here’s how it works:

You’ll receive one Conversation Starter every day for 21 days by email

– Use the new convo-starter phrase in a café, in a shop or any place you can

– After you use your phrase, take a photo with your phone and use the hashtag #TheConvoStarter on Instagram to share your experience. You can also tag me (@englishmadesimple) :)

By the end of the challenge you’ll be feeling more confident and less stressed to speak in English. Plus, you’ll also have fun!

Go to to download the Audio Book, complete the 3 Day Mini email course and join the speaking challenge.

See you in there amigos y amigas!
