Podcast: Fast or slow?

April 20, 2020

Tudo bem por aí? No episódio de hoje, eu te faço uma pergunta. Para responder, é só escolher e clicar em uma alternativa ao fim do texto abaixo. Ouça o podcast e me diga o que você acha… Enjoy.


Hi, everyone. How’s it going? How have you been? This is Ana with another episode of the Inglês Online podcast.

Here we go. Today I have a question for you, especially if you’re sort of a long time listener of this podcast – but also if you’re new. If this is one of the first times listening to this podcast that is fine… I want to know your opinion as well. But if you’re a long-time listener, you know that sometimes when I do the podcast I speak a bit more slowly. Usually when I’m explaining English expressions, when I’m talking about idioms and giving examples… Usually I tend to speak a bit more slowly.

On the other hand, when I do sort of a free-form kind of episode where I just talk about my life, and I just go on and on sort of telling a story… You know that sometimes I can speed it up a little bit and talk a bit faster.

I have had requests – from some of you – both ways. Some people asking me to do more podcasts speaking more naturally, faster and other people asking me to slow down a little bit. Lately, though, I have to say… I think I have had a little bit more of the latter, which is… more people asking me to record podcasts speaking a bit more slowly. Instead of going one way or the other, I decided to ask you to tell me which one you prefer.

In this podcast – obviously, not in the audio… but if you visit the podcast page, this episode’s page on the website, you will see a little… This little sort of quiz embedded in the post, in the page… And all you have to do is click on it and you’ll see the question What would you like me to do?

Would you like me to do more episodes speaking slowly? Would you like me to do more episodes speaking faster? Or do you think a balance is best? Let’s say 50% more slowly, 50% quicker… or something like that. All you have to do is click and choose the option. And I’m very interested in what you guys are going to go for – which alternative is going to be number one.

I can do both – I’m happy to do both. As you guys know, especially, again –  if you’ve been listening for a while, I have started to do more episodes without a lot of planning. There’s a lot more spontaneous talk… But anyway, I really enjoy doing the kind of episode where I pick a couple of expressions and give you examples, and repeat the expression a lot. And I also like telling you guys about some… some interesting experiences that I go through because I think that it really helps. Like some real life experiences, where I tell you what other people that I run into every day, say. They talk about their lives… it’s like different situations, everyday experiences… I think that’s interesting as well, and in those kinds of episodes I usually speak a little bit faster.

I’m curious to see what your choice is. Feel free, after you select your choice, to leave a comment as well. Looking forward to hearing from you guys.

Talk to you soon. Bye!
