Transcrição

Hi, everyone. How’s it going? How have you been? This is Ana with another episode of the Inglês Online podcast.

Here we go. Today I have a question for you, especially if you’re sort of a long time listener of this podcast – but also if you’re new. If this is one of the first times listening to this podcast that is fine… I want to know your opinion as well. But if you’re a long-time listener, you know that sometimes when I do the podcast I speak a bit more slowly. Usually when I’m explaining English expressions, when I’m talking about idioms and giving examples… Usually I tend to speak a bit more slowly.

On the other hand, when I do sort of a free-form kind of episode where I just talk about my life, and I just go on and on sort of telling a story… You know that sometimes I can speed it up a little bit and talk a bit faster.

I have had requests – from some of you – both ways. Some people asking me to do more podcasts speaking more naturally, faster and other people asking me to slow down a little bit. Lately, though, I have to say… I think I have had a little bit more of the latter, which is… more people asking me to record podcasts speaking a bit more slowly. Instead of going one way or the other, I decided to ask you to tell me which one you prefer.

In this podcast – obviously, not in the audio… but if you visit the podcast page, this episode’s page on the website, you will see a little… This little sort of quiz embedded in the post, in the page… And all you have to do is click on it and you’ll see the question What would you like me to do?

Would you like me to do more episodes speaking slowly? Would you like me to do more episodes speaking faster? Or do you think a balance is best? Let’s say 50% more slowly, 50% quicker… or something like that. All you have to do is click and choose the option. And I’m very interested in what you guys are going to go for – which alternative is going to be number one.

I can do both – I’m happy to do both. As you guys know, especially, again –  if you’ve been listening for a while, I have started to do more episodes without a lot of planning. There’s a lot more spontaneous talk… But anyway, I really enjoy doing the kind of episode where I pick a couple of expressions and give you examples, and repeat the expression a lot. And I also like telling you guys about some… some interesting experiences that I go through because I think that it really helps. Like some real life experiences, where I tell you what other people that I run into every day, say. They talk about their lives… it’s like different situations, everyday experiences… I think that’s interesting as well, and in those kinds of episodes I usually speak a little bit faster.

  • Carla Marques says:

    Obrigada, Ana Luiza! Eu ouço seus podcasts pelo spotify e adoro! Eles me ajudam muito nos meus estudos em inglês, são super úteis e eu gosto muito do jeito como você fala. Consigo compreender! Thank You so much!

  • Paulo Boito says:

    Agradeço muito a vocês, site muito bom.

  • Paulo says:

    Gostaria de dar uma dica! Existem vários aplicativos para estudo que permitem aumentar ou diminuir a velocidade da fala. Eu uso um muito bom, o Smart Audio Book, mas há muitos outros. Com isso é possível deixar a fala exatamente na medida da necessidade de cada um.

  • Paulo says:

    I would like to give you congratulations for your amazing work! I love the way that you make that, specially the possibilitie of learning English by listening, speaking and reading using the podcasts! Many thanks!

  • Antonio says:

    Ola,
    Sempre procurei textos curtos e interessantes. Seus Podcasts são exatamante o que preciso para ouvir a lingua inglesa e entender. Não precisa ser muito devagar, mas devagar.. de forma que proporcione a uma pessoa que é ouvinte iniciante, como eu, entender o tema e não ter dificuldades em acompanhar. Eu acho que depois de algum tempo ouvindo ja estarei acostumado com o som da lingua , dito por você e, quem sabe vou pedir para voce ir mais rápido, but the moment can you continue speaking slowly please?

  • Renato de Souza Paula says:

    Acredito que deva fazer os audios de forma natural, voce ja manda a transcricao, as pessoas devem se acostumar a ouvir a lingua de uma forma natural, nao precisa ser rapido igual o Eminem e nem Tao devagar so para os iniciantes se sentirem comodos

  • Ana Luiza says:

    Hi everyone
    Thank you so much for all your comments.
    We’re looking into stuff now :)
    Ana x

  • Beth Bell says:

    Nice to meet you Ana, I usually listen to your podcast, I didnt know you, I mean , your face. I like very much your lessons, I have been improve very much , doing exercises and listen to learn about pronounciation, new words, now, I came here and can do exercises, grammar, and so on. You are a very good teacher !
    Thank you for all. Beth, RJ

  • José Antonio says:

    Você podia gravar o episódio também no YouTube. Lá, até em celulares, dá para aumentar de diminuir a velocidade.

  • Reginato says:

    Hi Ana!

    I prefer the current speed but you can solve this dilemma adding a speed controller – I don´t know how do this but somebody must know it ;).

    Besides that, I like so much you podcast!

  • Maria says:

    Olá Ana!

    Pra mim, como vc faz tá ótimo!! Pelo que ja observei, os podcasts mais antigos, os primeiros mesmo são mais devagar. Quem tem dificuldades poderia começar por estes!

  • Thiago says:

    Bom minha opinião, acho que poderia ser um pouco mais rápido, seria mais desafiante…Acredito também que talvez fosse interessante ter uma conversa em inglês, entre você e um convidado……Parabéns pelo trabalho..

  • Zilá says:

    I think the text could be shorter

  • Claudio Vianna says:

    In my opinion, listenning to a little bit faster is better, because the native speakers speak as well.
    I couldn’t understand these expressions, sort of and kind of.

  • Maecelo says:

    Hi there. I hope everything is going well. I like your podcast fast. It’s more like real English and since you make available the full transcription, someone who doesn’t have good listening skills could listen to and read at the same time.

  • EDIFRAN says:

    Fale naturalmente, como se estivesse falando com um nativo! Quando for dar exemplos de algo, você pode até diminuir a velocidade dos exemplos que você dá, com o intuito de passar melhor a informação!

  • Leandro says:

    Rapidamente ou naturalmente, porque eu acredito que é bom para acostumarmos com o ritmo também. Temos que nos esforçar, nem sempre, haverá pessoas falando devagar né. Ah, uma última coisa, seus podcast são excelentes, assim que puder, vou fazer teu curso, preciso muito me tornar fluente em inglês.

  • geraldo says:

    Bom dia Luiza. A minha impressão e de que os pontos e virgulas estão sendo atropelados.
    Grato.Um abraço.

  • Célia Regina says:

    I prefer 50 % de two….okay?

  • NORBERTO says:

    I think it would be better to speak like natives. It’s more real.

  • Jackflack says:

    I think you could just speak normally, as you would do when you are talking to someone.
    Maybe you could encourage your listeners to use the speed selector on their favorite podcast player and adjust it as they want. Most players, if not all of them, provide this option. By doing so, you would not need to worry about how fast you really need to speak.
    I hope that helps.
    Thanks.
