#080 English Podcast ESL - Freddie Mercury - Queen

“Don’t stop me now. Cause I’m having a good time. I don’t wanna stop at all!”

Hello, everybody! I am Georgiana your English teacher and founder of My mission is to help you speak English fluently. Speaking English is easier than it seems! You just have to use the right material and techniques.

Today I’m going to talk about a band named Queen and the legendary Freddie Mercury.

And with a mini-story, you’re going to practice your speaking in English while learning fascinating facts about Freddie.

Have you heard or a band named Queen?

Of course, you have. I’m just kidding. :)

And how much do you know about their singer and songwriter Freddie Mercury

Some people believe that Mercury was British, but did you know that he was born in Zanzibar, September 1946?

You probably guessed by now that his real name wasn’t Freddie Mercury. His birth name was Farrokh Bulsara. I was curious about how to pronounce his name, so I have done my research, though I’m still not sure I’m pronouncing it correctly.

Did you know that Freddie was born with four extra teeth in the back of his mouth? He never fixed his teeth because he feared it would ruin his voice.

In 1964 Freddie's family moved to England, and in 1966, he enrolled in Ealing College of Art to study graphic illustration. There he met Tim Staffell who introduced him to his band Smile. Watching Smile made Freddie realize that he really wanted to be in a band himself. Therefore, after he finished his diploma in graphic art and design, he joined a band called Ibex, playing the lead guitarist.

Later on, he formed the band Queen in 1970 with guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor. He wrote numerous hits for Queen, including "Bohemian Rhapsody," "Somebody to Love," "Don't Stop Me Now," and "We Are the Champions." He also conducted a solo career and was a guest producer and musician for other artists.
