Our mission is to help you learn English the way it’s really used by native speakers in everyday conversations. We think it is really important to learn English how it is really spoken. That’s why our episodes are always focused on real, current English. If you want to learn English for everyday use, you’ve come to the right place. At Culips, we help make English understandable. By listening to our podcast, you can learn natural expressions and conversational structure.
Who we are
We are podcasting from Montreal, Canada, home to a diverse population that celebrates a variety of cultures and languages; in fact most people here speak French and English, and a lot of people speak a third language.
Listening to our audio episodes is like sitting in on an interesting chat between good friends. Your fluency, comprehension, vocabulary, and understanding of common English expressions will improve naturally as you get to know our hosts and learn about interesting topics and trends in Canada and around the world.
In addition to the podcast, we have some great resources, called learning materials, that go along with each podcast. This includes complete transcripts, detailed explanations and even quizzes to test your comprehension. Our learning materials are accessed through membership fees. Our written learning materials help you to explore each episode further and learn more about the expressions and topics discussed in the show. They also help you to test your understanding of what you’ve learned.
What does Culips mean anyway?
Culips is not an English word that you can find in the dictionary! We created the name Culips from Culture and Language. CUL for culture and LIPS for language (we use our lips to talk). And so every Culips episode has interesting elements of culture as well as language; they are inseparable!
