Easy Stories in English

Ariel Goodbody, Polyglot English Teacher & Glassbox Media

Learning a language is hard, but Easy Stories in English makes it easy! Ariel Goodbody introduces each story, explaining difficult vocabulary and talking about their life. Thanks to their high energy and clear pronunciation, the stories are entertaining and simple to understand. Whether you’re a beginner, intermediate or advanced learner, there’s something for everyone. The stories cover a wide range of genres, such as fairy tales, myths and legends, drama, comedy, romance, horror, science fiction and action. There is a balance of children’s stories, as well as more mature themes for adults. While listening to the stories, you can read the transcript at EasyStoriesInEnglish.com and get both reading practice and listening practice. With enough time, you’ll find that your reading and writing skills improve as well. Ariel Goodbody has a strong background in linguistics and language acquisition, and they base the podcast on Stephen Krashen’s theory of comprehensible input. Ariel changes the level of grammar to suit each level, but prioritise comprehension and good storytelling over anything else. Vocabulary is described using paraphrase, cultural references, pictures, intonation and sound effects. British culture, especially English culture, is naturally introduced throughout the episodes. Ariel also has experience in theatre, and treats every episode like an audiobook performance. With character voices, dramatic timing and a range of accents, adults and kids alike will soon forget that they’re ‘learning’ at all! Some of the most well-known stories from the podcast are: the Doggo and Kitty stories, Grimm Brothers’ Fairy Tales, The Very Hungry Dragon, Sleeping Beauty, The Perfect Pet, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Why Blood is Red, Saint George and the Dragon and Pioneers of the Continuum. Many stories are adapted from famous authors, such as Edgar Allan Poe, Hans Christian Andersen, Isaac Asimov, Josef Čapek, Margery Williams and Ryuunosuke Akutagawa. Ariel studied linguistics at the University of Cambridge and started teaching in 2018. As a language teacher, they use comprehensible input techniques such as TPRS and story listening. In 2021 they published a series of graded readers. These easy readers allow fans to get their favourite stories in a physical format.

Sign up for Easy Stories in English Premium and use the code 'easy' to get your first month free! EasyStoriesInEnglish.com/Support Transcript Hello everyone! It’s me, Ariel Goodbody, here with an exciting announcement. You’ve probably noticed that there are advertisements during episodes of the podcast now, and if you’re paying close attention, you will have seen that I’m not making new content on Patreon anymore. That’s because I’m starting Easy Stories in English Premium. Easy Stories in English Premium is a way to get all the episodes of the podcast without adverts, as well as bonus episodes from me. So why have I decided to do this? Well, having adverts on the podcast helps me do things like buy food and clothes, which I hear are quite important. But I understand that not everyone wants to hear adverts, and many people prefer to support in a more direct way. Also, it lets me give you all something ‘extra special’ – that’s what premium means, by the way, ‘extra special’. The bonus episodes are my way of saying thank you for supporting me. And I’m really excited about these new episodes. At the moment, I’m working on an episode about a recent holiday I took in Cornwall, and I interview my girlfriend Artoria as part of it. I also want to talk to you, my listeners, and record the conversations. So if you think you’ve got a star inside you, or you’d just enjoy having a chat with me on Zoom, this is your opportunity. On Patreon, I experimented with all kinds of bonus content, but it wasn’t an easy platform to use. With Easy Stories in English Premium it’s much easier. As soon as you sign up you’ll get your own podcast feed – that’s the list of episodes – without adverts and with bonus episodes. To sign up, go to EasyStoriesInEnglish.com/Support and use the code ‘easy’ to get your first month free. If you’re listening on Apple Podcasts, just go to the top of the feed and click ‘Try Free’! The Patreon isn’t disappearing, by the way – you can join it to get access to the archive of all the content I made for it – that’s exercises for old episodes, bonus podcasts, stories and so on. But I won’t be making any new content there. Thank you to everyone for listening, thank you to people who have supported me on Patreon, and I look forward to seeing you all on the Easy Stories in English Premium podcast feed! One more time, because I know it’s easy to forget how links are spelled, go to EasyStoriesInEnglish.com/Support and use the code ‘easy’ to get your first month free. Thank you so much!
