3 Minute English! by Venturenglish.com is a unique podcast for intermediate and advanced English learners. Why unique? Because instead of presenting idioms or dialogs, 3 Minute English! gives tips on usage, style, and nuance in English. The host, Paul Durant, takes about 3 or 4 minutes… more or less… to describe a usage or style point to help improve your English.
