I'm going to talk about the flute. If you are from Asia or India or Bangladesh then I bet you know about the flute!
I don't know the rest of the world's people know about or not.
This is a wind instrument made from wood and it has holes, players usually blow with their mouth. Also using fingers, players can sound it nicely!
I'd like to have to play this flute talent. :)

Well If I would like to choose, I'd like to have the ability to play jazz with a piano, although I studied a little bit of trumpet when I was younger and I really like the instrument, like one of the person said in the podcast, playing piano it's really difficult because it requires concentration and coordination of both hands and foots, so if I could do that I'd be able to play almost any song that I like.

Thanks for the Episode. Great site!

Hello everyone
I am going to talk about my talents. I would like to be fluntely in english and professional presenter. So I study hard to reach that by listening to podcasts and reading books. I fancy to speak like native speaker. However I try to encourage myself by make challenge with my friends.

Hi !
I would like have a Singing talent, the same that one of the voices. I think that is a important form to demostrate your emotions, and could help you to go out them. Also I could help ill people with depression for example or when someone who feels alone. You can sing for children and have fun moment with them.

Also I have a question for Ravi, Can you speak Spanish? Because you going to go to Spain, so you should know to speak his native language or in there also they speak in English?

Hi, I would like to play the violin. This is a great talent. I would have played many songs. Not only classic music, it would have been rock music, folk and famous pop hits. I like to listen to violin artists. Yes, violin music speaks to my heart!

I would like the talent of administering tasks.
I would like to have the talent of administering tasks and responsibilities.
No. I wouldn't.
No. I don't.

If I could have one talent would be to know how to keep people close and attached to me.

What talent would you like to have?I would like to know how to swim.I mean it is about safety as well.Knowing how to swim it is an important skill that everyone have to got.

One more question
At the time to say good bye, Tess Says:That’s all we’ve got TIME for today. It shoudn´t be: That´s all TIME we´ve got for today?

Hello jpkeiros

What Tess says is correct. The full form of the sentence is 'That is all that we have got time for today.' Does that help you make sense of it?

All the best
