Hi.
I´m Alan from Mexico. I think the Podcast and exercises on the website have been helped me a lot.
My favorite Podcast was when Tess and Ravi talked about Shakespeare, I love the theater and I enjoyed that topic. I didn’t know a lot about British culture and the podcasts make me that I want to travel to Bristh and I would like know the things that you talking to.
Thanks for the podcast.
Adios.

Hello again everyone.
I'm texting again to tell you about one of my favorite episodes of Tess and Ravi's.
Sherlock Holmes.
Delightful, splendid, Great, masterpiece flawless are Sir Artur Conan Doyle manuscripts.
After that episode I began watching Sherlock Holmes series but not this modern one. I started to watch series in which Jeremy Brett had played. I have to say that Jeremy Brett was IMPRESSIVE and I really enjoy watching him. But alas his death brought and end to the series. He have become one of my favorite artists though he is not among us. RIP dear Jeremy Brett.
Thank you
Reza

Hi guys!I've got a really fantastic joke for you.It's my favourite one!I hope you'll enjoy it!It's a typical grey and rainy day in England.An English gentleman is sitting in his drawing room by the fire reading his newspaper and drinking his tea. Quiet and peace are interrupted only by crackling of a log in the fire and subtle noises of the tea being slurped. Suddenly, the door opens with a bang and a valet runs into the room, his hair all in mess and himself out of breath: “Sir, sir, we must hurry, we must save ourselves, we are being flooded by Thames!We're going to drown!"Gentleman looks up at his valet and says: “John, this is a respectful and honorable household, please, do me a favor and behave befittingly!” The valet bows and leaves the room. One minute after the door opens with a bang and a valet runs into the room, his hair all in mess and himself out of breath: “Sir, sir, we must hurry, we must save ourselves, we are being flooded by Thames!All your maids have already drowned!I MUST save you!"Gentleman looks up at his valet and says: “John, this is a respectful and honorable household, please, do me a favor and behave befittingly!” , One minute later John appears on the doorstep and steps aside announcing loudly: “Thames,sir!”.And one more:A teacher asks the class: “Why is Shakespeare called a genius?” “Because he spoke and wrote in English!” says one pupil.
