What is this podcast? Ravi and Tes are no longer the main people. The new people speak very slowly in a very strange way! They say word by word with a short pause in between. Nobody speaks in that way in reality! What's the point of this change???

There is no section like "I want to talk about" or "Our person in (series 1 but I liked it)". No interviewing people on the street, no jokes or even no Tom the English teacher!!! I thought these parts were very helpful to improve my listening skill. Carolina appears to have survived, but I don't like that part from the beginning...she sounds unhappy even when she is supposed to be happy...

I really hope the podcast will change again soon!!!

Hello MJ Walker,

Thank you for your comments, which we will pass on to the makers of the podcast. Ravi and Tess are still key members of the podcast and will remain so right through this series and the next, as you'll see.

 

Best wishes,

My question is: Where can we find the concept of connection between the English words?
It is good to listen to the audio. The readings are very excellent.

Hello RECCORD,

I'm afraid we do not have pages specifically focusing on this point. You can, of course, use the listening texts and the audioscripts to familiarise yourself with examples of connected speech in natural contexts.

Hi!
I will give you a recipe for a typical food in my country, Venezuela, called "Arepas".
You need cornmeal, water and salt, and something for filling: butter, cheese, ham, chicken, meat.
In a bowl put some water with a little salt and gradually add the cornmeal, mix with a hand until obtain a soft, malleable and semi solid dough. Then form a round pancake and cook on a gridle. Flip arepa until it is toasted on both sides.
When the arepas are ready, cut around with a knife and fill with butter, cheese, ham, chicken, sauce, avocado or anything you want!
enjoy it!

Hello, I’m Lola. In Colombia (South America) there is a particular drink. It’s “aguadepanela with cheese”. It`s a delicious, sweet and hot drink with fresh cheese inside. It’s fantastic for the weather in Bogota.
