The benefit of studying with short English conversations

Short conversations are the easiest to use for practicing English. Most conversations on Dialogue Frog are about 3 minutes long. They are easy to listen to and repeat. This makes it easier to listen to the pronunciation and intonation of English words when they are used in conversations. 

These short dialogues can be used in many different ways depending on your current level of English. Listen and repeat the conversations to focus on improving your pronunciation, intonation or listening comprehension.

Questions are great! Unfortunately, we focus on  conversations and listening practice at Dialogue Frog. Grammar is very important but it is not the focus of our podcast.

 

If you have a grammar question while listening to Dialogue Frog, try asking your friends on social media. If you are taking English classes, try asking your teacher or tutor. You can also post your question in a community of native English speakers or English learners on language exchange websites or applications. 

The ending sound of the word 'dialogue' rhymes with the word 'frog.' We felt this play on words suited the short and sometimes silly nature of a Dialogue Frog conversation. 

 

You can thank Luke for the name. 🙂
