Hi Kirk.

Thank you for your answer.

Hi everybody,

I want to write some comments about a great sportsman Rafael Nadal, the Spanish tennis player. He is always fighting but, at the same time he is really polite with his opponents. His physical features aren't the best for tennis, however he has worked hard to improve and to evercome injuries. I think is a perfect model to the teenagers.

Hi everybody, I'll talk to you about Cappadocia.
Cappadocia is in Turkey, in Nevşehir. It's a historical settlement. There is a lot of houses in the big rocks. Cappadocia is in the UNESCO world heritage list. About 1,5 million people visit Cappadocia each years. There is a lot of things to visit in Cappadocia. Churchs, monasteries, valleys which keep historical city life, and Derinkuyu underground city which has got 12 stairs but you can visit only 8 stairs. You can fly by balloon and see all the Cappadocia. Of course you can taste a lot of rergional flavors. I went to there last year and just once.

i appreciate these podcasts.

Hi Shoxrux,

Welcome to LearnEnglish! It might help to think of LearnEnglish as a library to browse in - there is no starting point and you are free to explore it as you wish and best suits you.

The Elementary Podcasts are a great place to start, as are the other sections under Listen & Watch, where you'll also find videos and texts with transcripts, explanations, and exercises. Or if you're more interested in business, be sure to look at our Business & Work section.

If you need any other help, please don't hesitate to ask us!

Best wishes,

Kirk
The LearnEnglish Team
