Hello everybody!
I want to say that I want to meet Tess, Ravi, Gordon and Tom. I love them. They are just fantastic and so addictive. I can't wait for the next podcast but I still have to understand and learn more words from this podcast. I've realy loved these people who makes these huge work for us. And I want to say them huge thank you. They are real celebrities, because the whole world listening them.  You have to know guys that I realy like you and what you doing for us)) And I want to see you. Maybe you can make only one video podcust for listeners, who feels full of curiosity. And I want to ask them, do they feel that they are realy celebrities? How many fans they have in the world? And how it to fill that your voice loves many people? You are really great characters that I want to meet?

Hi, I'm Gibson (Leonardo), I'm 40 and I'm from Italia.
My english is very elementary: I have started  from few day.
I hope to continued...

Hi, i am saadia, new in this family of english learners, its amazing to be a member on this website. i have listened the podcast of series1 episod 7 hosting Ravi and.... there guest Mahameed, you talked about Economist Dr. Mohammad Younas Nobel Prize holder and his work.his idea of micro credit is marvellous that can change and imrove the living standard  of people, giving a small loan to women to start a small buissnness like goat milk selling,rural poulatry etc.Pakistan is also using this idea especiallyto motivate poor rural women to take part in micro economic activity of country that can ultimately change theire fate. 
friends really i don't know the best way to use this website, yes i know i have to explore it...... will you guide me?

I think the podcasts of the series 1 are very interesting.
For instance, in podcast 7, Carolina makes a mistake with her English. She had confused "constipated" with "cold". Even people who speak well English make mistakes.
I have a intermediate level of English but I need to improve my English.
My aim is to run well the English in my head. For instance, when I hear the podcasts of the series 1 that English run well in my head.
Learning English is a hobby that I develop bit by bit.
