This is Extraordinary English Podcast, Episode #1, Welcome everyone. I am Ben.
In this very first episode, we'll start to talk with Sara, from Egypt. We are both English learners.


BEN: (In French) Bonjour Sara! (In Arabic) Sabah al khair! Ehlen beeky!
SARA: Sorry?! What did you say?
BEN: You said you could speak French & Arabic. (melodic)
SARA: Of course! But isn't this an English podcast?
BEN: (hesitates). Yes, but it's an extraordinary one! :)
SARA: Sure it is. Beyond doubt!
BEN: Sara, have you thought about what we discussed? What do you think about the concept of Extraordinary English Podcast?
SARA: I think listeners will like it but some people will find it peculiar.
BEN: What do you mean? Will people make fun of me? (melodic)
SARA: Don't get upset, please. I didn't mean that. What I meant is that...
BEN: (interrupts Sara) You don't need to tell me all the ins and outs. I understood almost everything (melodic)
SARA: Calm down! You are just making a case out of nothing! Don't interrupt me and hear me out!
BEN: I am all ears!
SARA: Why don't you create a quiz about every episode and ask the listeners to participate?
BEN: Wow! That would be great!
SARA: By doing so, listeners can interact and check themselves.
BEN: I'll definitely do it!
SARA: How many listeners do you think will try the quiz before you publish the second episode?
BEN: Your guess is as good as mine! We'll wait and see.
SARA: Please get your hopes up!
BEN: Thank you so much Sara! I'll think about it. We can continue to discuss this matter later. Now, there is someone else waiting to talk with me.
SARA: OK. See you.


ALEX: Hello Ben! I am expecting you to talk with me for ages.
BEN: Hello Alex. Yes you should wait your turn.
ALEX: You are talking with Sara too much. Who is she?
BEN: She is a good friend of mine... (melodic)
ALEX: Good for you. I want to ask you another question...
BEN: Go on Alex
ALEX: Can you can a can as a canner can can a can?
BEN: Sorry! No, I can't can a can as a canner can can a can. Is there any other question?
ALEX: Do you think people will find this podcast useful and get benefit from it?
BEN: We can do what we can. But as you already know, you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink.
ALEX: Hmm. You are right. I have one more question for you.
BEN: Keep it for next time Alex. The time is over for this episode.


  • beyond doubt: too obvious to be doubted
  • ins and outs: the details or facts relating to something
  • make something out of nothing: to make an issue of something of little importance.
  • all ears: Ready and eager to hear what one has to say; prepared to listen intently.
  • your guess is as good as mine: something you say when you do not know the answer to a question
  • you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink: you can give someone an opportunity but not force them to take it.
  • hear out: To listen to someone without interrupting: Hear me out, I have something important to say.


Thanks to Sara (from Egypt) for all of her efforts and contributions for creating this episode of Extraordinary English Podcast.
