Hey Everyone!  I'm really amazed with this website... It's a great tool to help us improve our English. When i listened this Podcast I realized my english is not so bad 'cause I could undertand it all without reading Transcript.
I wish I could know Christina Aguilera in person. I think she's a beautiful talented singer with a gorgeous voice. She's one of many celebrities that helps poor people.

Hi everyone, it's my first time here on English Council website and I'm loving it.
I want to improve my English and this is a powerful way to do it. My English is quite poor yet.
see ya

 My teacher (who's now a part of British Council's Teachers Training System in Pakistan) recommended me these podcasts because I had been very much concerned about enhancing my abilities in English language and listening skills as well to be as fluent as a native, I just found it pretty useful, definitely will be attached with this sort of great stuff.
Thanks British Council
