This is Jane Lawson's Audio Blog #126 at DailyStep English

jANE lAWSON Hello, I'm Jane at DailyStep English and welcome to my Audio Blog!

In this blog, there is a free audio proverb to download - and, in my opinion, one with a very important message! Remember to speak along with the audio file as this is part of the DailyStep learning method. Play the audio repeatedly until you can copy the native speaker (me) exactly. Also, in case you missed it, check out the free business English lesson that I posted recently.

If you are new to DailyStep English, please register for a free trial of 5 UK/USA audio lessons and to be on my mailing list. 

Here is Audio Proverb #051 from Jane Lawson at .

.. .

It takes all sorts to make a world. .
it takes all sorts to make a world

Meaning: People vary in character and abilities, and this is a good thing. There are all kinds of people in the world.

Examples: 1. I don’t know why you get so angry at your neighbour just because he is different from you and he has a different lifestyle. It takes all sorts to make a world, you know!

2. Did you see that strange man cycling past in the clown suit? Well, it takes all sorts to make a world, I suppose!

 What is a DailyStep English Audio Lesson?



How does a DailyStep subscription work?

DailyStep Audio lessons make you speak English like a native speaker for a short time each day, and help you to understand native speakers perfectly. 
If you subscribe to my regular DailyStep audio lessons, I will send you 5 expertly- designed audio lessons per week, so every month you get approximately 22 lessons per level. You choose the level yourself that you think will be challenging for you - not too easy, not too hard - and you can change your level, or add more levels, at any time after joining.

  • Each weekday (Monday to Friday), you receive an email containing a link that takes you straight to your audio lesson.

  • Each audio lesson contains a short conversation, with an audio file and script, as well as vocabulary and style notes to help you understand it.

  • Key phrases in the conversation are hidden at first so you can test your listening skills. You can then uncover the hidden text.

  • There are 2 audio files per lesson – one at fast, natural speed and a second audio file that is slowed down using special software to 65% of natural speed. This allows you to hear exactly how the language works.

  • You copy the native speakers by speaking along with the audio files to improve your pronunciation, rhythm, speed and intonation.

  • All your lessons are stored for you in an online Personal Lesson Bank so you can log in to take them again any time, or take lessons you have missed – even after your subscription has expired!

  • You can download the MP3 audio files to your computer, mobile phone or i-pod.

  • The lessons take only 5 - 10 minutes each day to complete, and you can log in and take your lessons from any computer.

  • There are no advertisements to distract your attention.


As a subscriber, you will also get full access and download rights to the audio in my Teacher’s Blogs, with cultural articles and downloadable audio grammar lessons.


DailyStep Audio Lessons are exceptionally good value – I believe in keeping prices down so that better English is affordable for everyone! There is a 30-day money back guarantee, so there is no risk at all! So what are you waiting for? A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step!
