What happened to this podcast? Where Tess and Ravi. The men replaced them speaking so slowly and clearly in a way that no native English speaker speaks

Hello Anne,

We make changes in the format of Elementary Podcasts from time to time. If you listen ahead to episode 2, you'll find Tess and Ravi again. I can assure you that all the people who participate in the podcasts are native speakers, though it's true that sometimes they speak more slowly and sometimes more quickly. In general, series 3 and 4 are a little bit easier to understand this way.

By the way, series 5 is in production. Some things will be the same, but others will be different. We hope you enjoy them, but if you're looking for something else in the meantime, Word on the Street is a good next option.

All the best,
Kirk

You can Cook fish by prepare a mixture of garlic,onion,lemon and vegetables then bake it in a hot oven for 30 minuites

When I think about Britain I think about red double decker buses, tea, fish and chips and the London eye.

I may not know if whoever the creators behind this amazing website but from the bottom of my heart I would like to say thank you and stay blessed!!!

i'm so happy to join you and i really want to speak english fluently and i hope to achive this goal with you

and my recipe is kofta it's a egyptian recipe

Ingredients:
1 lb ground beef
1/4 lb ground lamb (optional, if not using then add more ground beef instead)
1/2 cup minced parsley
1 grated small onion
2 minced garlic
1 Tbs salt
1 tsp crushed black pepper
1/2 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp nutmeg
Extra virgin olive oil Spray
1 piece of charcoal

Directions:
~ Mix the onion and garlic with the spices and let it sit in room temperature for 15 minutes
~ Add the meat and the parsley to the onion and mix well. Shape the meat into kofta shapes.
~ Spray the bottom of a large pan with the olive oil. Heat the pan over medium high heat.
~ When the pan is hot, add the koftas and pan fry on all sides. Lower the heat and cover the pan.
~ Let it cook for 5 minutes. Then uncover the pan and let any liquid evaporate.
~ The kofta is now ready to serve or you can continue to the next steps to add the charcoal smokey taste:
~ When cooking the kofta, get the charcoal ready by putting it on a medium high fire until it turns grey.
~ Make a small pocket that will hold the charcoal: Take a piece of aluminium foil (8×8″/20x20cm), fold in half then fold the edges to make the pocket shape.
~ Place 1 Tbs of olive oil and the hot charcoal to the foil.
~ When the kofta is cooked, remove from the heat. Make a hole in the middle of the pan, pushing aside the koftas.
~ Put the foil pocket in that hole and quickly cover the pan. The smoke from the charcoal will fill the pan and infuse the koftas.
~ After 2 minutes, your kofta is ready to be served.
