1. Using Foreign Words

In this, the first monthly podcast from the Queens School of English, Wroclaw, we take a look at some of the many foreign (particuarly French) words used in modern English and how you can use them to give your language that little bit of “je ne sais quoi.” We also take a quick look at the history of English to find out why it’s such a confusing mess. Extra materials below.
