Learning Fluency Phrases, Language, Identity and Culture: Sharing Stories with Clare from Smart English Coach

About the episode 

In this episode, I talk with Clare Whitmell, an English teacher and podcaster from Smart English Coach. I could’ve listed to her beautiful accent from Oxford all day! 
You’ll hear us talk about:
  • The relationship between language and culture.
  • Why it’s a good idea to learn lexical chunks, what Clare calls ‘fluency phrases’.
  • Differences between British and Italian people.
Clare also shares a personal story about a time she found a personal connection with the Italian culture. This is inspired by a photo of a memorial she took in Italy.
