{Patreon Special} Arsenio’s Business English Podcast | Investment | The Importance of Diversification

If you have all of your assets in one market, if a downturn happens, such as what happened at the beginning of COVID, there could be a ridiculous amount of problems with your portfolio. For example, a Bangkok Bank Executive who I used to train would come in, every morning, right before COVID, and tell me that he had lost tens of thousands of dollars because the Stock Exchange of Thailand fell flat on its face.

So, how can you have diversification not only in assets but also in income management? Tune in!

{Patreon Special} TOEFL iBT | Reading | 1 on 1 Coaching | Summary Questions | Cave Art in Europe & Deer Populations

Having problems with summary questions on TOEFL? In this full episode with one of my students from Egypt, you’ll get a full rundown and hear how she’s able to overcome the issues that many of you have!

“Months ago I did some fantastic online coaching with one of my students, and in it I explained how you can summarize and find keywords in regards to the summary questions. Because there’s so much misinformation out there, even with TST Prep teaching students how to find the answers (not very effective), it could be very difficult as a non-NES speaker when you get conflicting techniques. So, follow us in the podcast down below and with the passages you see down below, too.”

Arsenio’s Business English Podcast | Investment | Best Types of Pensions & Risky Investments

There’s so much information that goes around in the world that people often find it very difficult to trust where they get their information from; let alone the markets in every country are very different from one another. In today’s podcast, I’m going to let you hear an audio of a guy, by the name of David Ramsey, rambling about absolutely nothing without coming to a conclusion. After that, we’re going to hear what professionals at major wealth managements, corporations and financial companies discuss risks. British, Japanese and American accents are on the menu for today!

{Patreon Special} Arsenio’s Business English Podcast | Season 6: Episode 34 | Positive & Negative Feedback: Workplace Scenario

Back in 2017, I had a boss that attacked me in more ways than one, threatening me by saying, “if you want to continue working here, we need to have a conversation.”


I had shivers go down my back, and at that exact time, I quit.


First, NEVER be disrespected by anyone who threatens you in that way. Second, the ridiculous conversation we had was all about his feelings and nothing about concrete facts. I went on to quit and it was the GREATEST decision I ever made.


In today’s podcast, we’re going to listen to a workplace scenario situation and dissect if it was a good conversation or not, as well as other pointers that will help you in all your relationships.

Arsenio’s Business English Podcast | Season 6: Episode 32 | Flight Problems & What To Do

As an ESL speaker, there’s nothing like being in another country when a flight cancellation happens, throwing your hands in the air incredulously and not being able to communicate with people as to why it was canceled, let alone what to do next.

From lost baggage, to rampant delays, overbookings, and poor customer service. We’ve all been a part of that, but how can we handle these frustrating situations? In today’s podcast, we’re going to discuss flying in general, then listen to five different situations and how to approach them.

Arsenio’s Business English Podcast | Season 6: Episode 30 | Sickness & Business

Britons average 6.5 sick leave days a year. In America, if you take sick leave within the first couple of months of your new job, you’re not going to go back.

Meanwhile, in Australia, you have 30 holidays and a minimum of 15 sick days a year. 

A Goldman Sachs recent survey revealed that first/second-year consultants are averaging 90 days of work a week, plunging their mental health into the red zone and not having ANY personal time. The CEO, of course, shrugs his shoulders because it’s all about the money.

A complete opposite of this would be my business client in Bangkok buying each of his employees a one-year membership to a gym, giving them the opportunity to workout during their lunch break, too.

In today’s long episode, I reveal the good, the bad, the ugly, and what you can do if you’re working in a highly stressful environment.

Arsenio’s Business English Podcast | Season 6: Episode 29 | Social Trends in Your Country

When we think about the population getting poorer, people spending their time online, living longer, dying partnerships (or growing), and other trends….they change quite often.  In today’s podcast, we discuss a wide range of trends in different countries. And in the end, you’ll have an assignment to do!

{Patreon Special} Arsenio’s Business English Podcast | Season 6: Episode 33 | Airports & My Favorite Airports in The World

When it comes to Asia, they have the best airports in the world and it’s not even close.  Compared to the western world, Asian airports put them to shame.  For instance, Changi International in Singapore is literally 30 years ahead of its time — that’s how great it is! However, there are some airports that fall way below average in Asia such as KLIA2 in Malaysia, Vientiane’s stereotyping (which affects customer service), and the shambolic international airport in Ho Chi Minh City.  So, what are your three most important perks for an airport and your three least — listen to the podcast to find out what type of perks there actually are!

Are you aware of what you do throughout your day? How much time is wasted at specific times? How about what you think about? On your journey to work, in the morning, or even in front of the TV? What’s your most dominant thought? In today’s episode, I will evaluate how people in England spend their time, and the results are quite frightening, considering the fact that they throw away so much time in the evening. Here we go!
