hi there is false information in this podcast. Kosovo isn't in Serbia. So far about 80 countries recognized Kosovo as an independent country.

Hi Arda,
Thanks for your comment. We don't say in the podcast that Kosovo is in Serbia, instead we talk about a comment posted by a user called 'Kosovac' who says s/he is from Serbia.
Best wishes,

Me first job was writer in Kinepolis (Belgium company, but I worked in Polend). Nice place, friendly people and a lot of popcorn, which we ate in the secret for a managers. Gwallau, what are you study?

my first job was a surveyor, what i did as surveyor is made survey to the the market about a product (lets say product "C") comparing  to the competitor. What i survey was :
- how many "C" product is in the store/market
- How Many Competitor product is
- Turn Over of the product
- The Benefit that the seller prefer to received if they can sell the "C" product
- Do that need tools to sell the product.
That's what i did and at time im still study. I really enjoyed that job. But so tired because i have to walk far, market to market and store to store. this job make my way, now i work as business development in the company. 

hello everyone! i'm Phuong come from HaNoi university of Pharmacy.i was a tutor for 2 years when i began to go to universty.It was so exciting when i recieved the first salary.the first thing i wanted to buy at that time was a gift for my parents..after a long time tutoring i decide to stop that because i was so bored when i must help the bad and lazy student like restard.morover it took me  a lot of i have more time to learn english.that is so great.

My first job was a free lancer. I was working as in-house translator from Spanish to Arabic. The job was consisting in recieving texts that need to be translated via E-mail and handling them by the same way. Most of texts that I translated  were news. I didnot earn very much but I have got an experience in the world of work. 
I found that job enjoyable but difficult at the same time. I think that i got this job through navigating in Internet . I hope ican get another job soon.
