    The worst story
    Just started listening the German story and stopped after several minutes. What a disgusting things are presented here. Absolutely awful! Viele Grusse aus Deutschland.

    About podcast
    The podcast, as well as Shana herself, were incredible! My wife and I have been listening to this podcast nonstop for the last three weeks. I believe that the American English podcast is highly underrated compared to similar English teaching podcasts. The methods, cultural context, and everything else are excellent.
  • AngelaPaz!
    Thanks you!
    This podcast is very helpful to me and I think is the best podcast for English learners I ever listened. I am a mom of two little kids, living in Seattle and is the only way I can listen English. It was a pleasure hear all the histories on a fun and interesting way.

    Great English for intermediate to advanced level!
    One of the best English podcasts I’ve listened over the years! It covers broad daily contents and events with some explanations on words not easy to understand as a non-native speaker! Can’t miss one episode! Great way to learn English while learning the American culture at the same time. Thank you!

    Jump the gun
    My roommate jumped the gun and gave a permission for real estate to video record our place without my permission . The problem is she does not care about my feelings.

    Why teach people to use toxic spray?
    It is extremely distressing to me that a podcast ostensibly concerned with teaching English is telling people it’s good to use toxic spray in your yard to kill spiders. So ecologically harmful! I also don’t understand why the host didn’t call a local wildlife organization to find out what to do for the baby birds she found. Really upsetting podcast.

    O melhor que já ouvi.
    É impressionante como o conteúdo deste podcast atrai a atenção dos ouvintes, e de repente você esquece completamente que está ali para aprender. Você se envolve completamente com as histórias que ela conta, com as entrevistas e de repente está compreendendo tudo, aprendendo de forma divertida. Shana tem uma didática maravilhosa, eficiente e simpática de ensinar. Morei 4 anos na Califórnia, estou de volta no Brasil, mas ouço os podcasts regularmente. Minha filha de 13 anos também não perde um. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 É tão envolvente que até parece que somos amigos íntimos de Shana, Lucas e suas filhas. 😍

    I’m so happy ! I just starting following you, and I love it! I’m learning a lot from you! You are a great teacher and it’s easy to learn with your words and the way you always explain to us! Thank you for teaching the people like me! I really want to learn how to express myself in English language and learn more about it . To Speak and express myself polite and properly! God bless you! 💐🙋🏻‍♀️💝And I apologize for my writing mistakes!

    100% recommended
    With this fun to listen podcast, not only you are advancing your English, but also are learning about America’s history, culture, customs, jokes foods, places, a very interesting way that in my opinion it takes to read hundreds of books to learn about them.
  • TomikSar
    Thanks Shana, I learned a lot about American English, culture, please keep up the good job and teach us more

    Quality nuggets
    I’d love to listen to your podcast on a daily basis. You provided lots of useful information about American language and culture. I can attribute my English level up a lot to the expressions you shared. I appreciate it.

    Shana Thompson Revolutionized my Diction!
    Before I started studying under Shana I could not speak or understand English. From street signs to restaurant menus, I was completely lost and functionally illiterate in America. However, under Shana's tutelage, I have become a fluent and adept English speaker and was even able to pass the California Bar Exam!
