Dear Podcasts team
hello everyone, my name is momen
I wonder why don't you collect every series from your great podcasts in a PDF file so we can download the whole series and print it so as we can read it anywhere at any time
I already have my own one for series one i print it all and I now enjoying in reading and studing from it it's really a helpful way and a wonderful idea
however I'm not interested in series number 3 as you change the way you present your program because I admire tees and ravi also carolina and want to listen to thire voice all the time not separated, any way I'm sure that you will find a new way which will be nicely for series 4 but please make it long, I mean the time if possible

Dear Momen,
We make PDFs available for each individual episode, but I'm not sure that many people are interested in one PDF file for all the episodes.
Sorry to hear that you don't like Series 3 as much as the first two series. Everyone has different preferences and it's impossible for us to find a formula that works for everyone. Many listeners found the episodes in Series 1 & 2 were too long, which is why we made them shorter for Series 3.
Best wishes,

Hello guys,
What is very interesting-I came from country where tee usually drink people when they getting sick.Stupid but it is true.Many people in the morning take domestic drink called RAKIJA.It is very strong spirit but nice to taste.Normally only one shot glass and after that rest like coffee , breakfast and so on.The drink is similar like whisky but made from fruit(100% fruit without added sugar).Most people consume coffee then tee and I think they do wrong.Tee is much better and healthier then coffee.But RAKIJA is good as well.

i'm from Tunisia and tea is also popular in our country but i think that coffee is more      popular! i like both of them and i drink lot of coffee a day!

Hello Adam!
I thing there is something wrong with task 1. Non matter what I tick, always point b, d, f are wrong and the rest are right.
And I'm a little bit confused about task 4 question 8: Mother Teresa of Calcutta gave/was given the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979. I tick 'gave', but it was wrong. I'm sure should be gave, but maybe I could be wrong. Please confirm that.
Best regardas

In task 1, b, d and f are all false, which is why they have a cross next to them. I know it's confusing and we're trying to think of a way to make it clearer.
Task 4 question 8 has the right answer. Mother Teresa didn't give the Nobel Prize to anyone, it was given to her by the Nobel Prize committee.
Best wishes,

Thank you so much for your answer! 
Now I now how it works. For my explanation I have got only I've thought, the cross appear next to my mistakes (in task 1) but they appear at false statements. Sorry I bother you, and thank you once again:)
Best regards

Hi Adam and all my friend here :) in my country ussually tea drink in the morning and afternoon..... and we always make some tea to our guest who come to our home :)

I had made a mistake in the word I said, It should be : that was the frist time I had drunk the tea I felt fantastic I had never had before my life. Not very fantastic.
Thank you
