Thank you for the podcast. I could not find the link to download support pack. Could you please update it?


Dear Kiran,
It's there! I put it up last as I needed to make some last-minute changes. Sorry to make you wait.
Best wishes,
The LearnEnglish Team

Thank you Adam! :)

Dear AdamJK
- I can see the name on the screen "Elementary Podcast 14" but I can´t access it.
I hope help you.

Hi Tavora.
I had your problem too. But I found that waiting to load whole exercise  section is a solution. Try it. Also I download MP3 $ pdf files, Then I don't have any problem to hear podcasts.
And Thanks Adam & Rob :-)

Dear Moderators,

hello  i come to learn english as well as u

Hi there!
This is d 1st time I surf in yr net. As I'm an English teacher in Iran, I need yr hands 2 improve my knowledge. Thx anyway. LOL

Hi ImanRoohi,
You're certainly surf at the right website ImanRoohi. I, for instance learn so much from this website; my listening skill improved greatly eventhough this isn't my weakest area because I've a bunch of Westerner friends who'll speak English with me on a daily basis in a real life, and the most impressing thing is that my writing ability improved a lot even if it's too far away from perfect, especially when it comes to grammar (I've to admit that this is my weakest area in English), also my confidence in putting my idea into papers have increased unexpectedly well. This website really awesome, especially I could trust my details with them, also no exchange email address or Skype within member.
The very best of luck,
Warm regards,
Umi Zahrok
