Dear Ruwin, iam crazy about practicing speaking English! I have viber address,too.
Nice to meet you!

Hello Yuri and Ruwin,

It's great that you want to practise speaking English – it can really help you improve your fluency and comprehension. I'm afraid, however, that sharing personal information such as your viber addresses is prohibited by our House Rules. You might want to take a look at our Facebook page, where there may be a way to find other like-minded people.

Best wishes,

I've never heard of the beatles before, but I just listened to yesterday song and really like it, and it's easy to understand like Ravi said.
I usually listen to Irish boy band ( westlife ) and see the lyrics of the song, they're my favourite band.
Honestly I used to listen to English music quite alot but after I joined your amazing website. I spend most of time listening to podcast, for me it's way better than any other music.
Thank you all for your efforts, I really appreciate it.

Hello Nada and everyone,

Thanks for letting us know how much you enjoy Elementary Podcasts! We're certainly grateful that you appreciate our work.

All the best,

I'm so upset because my comment was not published here, I suppose tha was excluded, why?

Hello PercivalMoreira,

Are you sure it wasn't published? I just searched and found this one from 7 October. When a lot of comments have been published on a page, it can be difficult to find other ones, as they are moved onto second and third pages (see the navigation at the bottom). 

If this is not the comment that you're asking about, you're welcome to post it again. It's possible that it was deleted by mistake, but we are quite careful with comments. I doubt there was anything objectionable in your comment, but please know we also don't publish some comments due to what they say – see our House Rules for more information.

Best wishes,
The LearnEnglish Team
