PLUS Episode 1: IELTSPodcast Interview with Ben Worthington

Welcome to Slow American English, the podcast for learners of American English. I’m your host, Karren Tolliver.

This is PLUS Episode 1: IELTSPodcast Interview with Ben Worthington

This is a special episode and not typical. Today I interview Ben Worthington who has an ESL podcast called the IELTSPodcast. He helps students pass the IELTS exam.

There are two unusual things about this episode. There is no transcript for the interview, and it is in natural-speed English. However, it is still a good listening exercise, and you can learn about a good way to study for the IELTS exam.

Find links to Ben’s website, including the IELTS Essay Correction Service and the IELTS Vocabulary and Lexical Resource on my website at
