English For Living

English for Living is the first programme to feature as part of the brand new initiative. This series aims to teach the listeners the English language through conversations and exercises based around every day situations. Listeners are encouraged to listen to the podcasts while completing the corresponding workbook for each episode.
This series was funded by the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland (BAI).
In association with Dr. Ruth Harris of TU Dublin (Blanchardstown Campus) and Alan Connolly of 92.5 Phoenix FM.

Lesson 1 – Introductions

Welcome to English for Living. This series is especially for people who have been living in
Ireland for a while and who have learned some basic English and would like to learn more. It
deals with situations which people meet every day when they are living in an English speaking
country and is set particularly in Blanchardstown. The series hopes to help people to build on
the language that they already have and give them more vocabulary and expressions for
communicating in everyday life. It aims to give people more confidence so that they can
explain clearly what they need or want to know and understand more easily what people are
asking them.
