🇬🇧 We're British!

Join the best online program for British English learners. Brought to you by a native British English Teacher who has lived all over the world for the last 10 years and in doing so has realised how strange us folk back in the UK really are! 🤪

Charlie knows the real British English that people use in their daily lives and he focuses specifically on the context in which natives are using phrasal verbs, idioms and expressions so that you don't just get exposed to the new language but actually feel confident enough to use it yourself in the right way!

All the while, talking about British culture, current affairs, and history that matters now.

 Level Up Faster

Get to an advanced level faster by using personally made materials by Charlie that go deeper than the free resources available on social media platforms.

After reading Psychology at University and teaching 1000's of students over the last 7+ years, Charlie knows the best approaches to teaching a language

Charlie loves continuously developing his professional skills as a language teacher and is passionate about "the neuroscience of learning" or "learning how to learn".

Meet Your Teacher

I’m Charlie, the creator and host of The British English Podcast.

After graduating with a BSc in Psychology I decided to combine two of my passions to create a life of happiness to help share it on.
These two passions were to simply help others and to travel.

I’ve been teaching English and travelling the world since 2014 and currently reside in Sydney, Australia.

With the experience I’ve gained I now understand that language learning is a journey. One that should be enjoyed along the way. Making connections with natives of the language you are learning helps your passion for the language to grow.

My aim for this podcast is for you to get to know me on a deeper level to allow me to teach you through context using authentic materials and for you to come away from each Season of The Academy feeling confident in using the new language and cultural references you’ve acquired

Reviews from members of The Academy

I'd like to recommend the academy because...its contents are very interesting and authentic so, you learn a lot about British culture, be it in respect of society, habits and traditions and all with a touch of humour, which I really appreciate.

My big problem has always been fluency but now I can tell proudly that I'm much more confident and I'm not more afraid to talk.

Eight months ago when I started this amazing journey I never imagined that today I would record this video and put myself out there without feeling pure cringe.

"Charlie's podcast and academy is easy to follow and helps me remember every word he teaches by following the quizzes and exercises. He is such a good teacher with specific plans for his own lessons who knows the difficulties of a non-native english learner like me."

"It's evident that Charlie has put so much effort into The Academy and I will definitely recommend The British English Podcast to anyone wanting to improve their English and to my subscribers on Instagram! The Academy is really easy to use and it has a lot of useful tasks."
Anya
English Teacher, Russia
Charlie is very good at showing people when the new words and phrases can be used. It helps me to really apply the phrases in the future. The rise and fall of his voice also makes the content more interesting as I can feel the different emotions from him.

What I like most about The Academy is the live classes where you can apply what you learnt from The Academy.

He breaks down difficult concepts easily but the best part is that he teaches English in real life that you can easily use in your daily conversation.

The academy content hones, not only on the vocabulary from intermediate to Advanced but it also packed with humour, as the host, Charlie really breaks down the expressions in every video of every episode, helping their vocabulary sink in and be used, actively in your speech.
