hi everyone
what an interesting podcast
I have never worked anywhere. I'm still student in a college.
I noticed something inside the support pack of this podcast. There is a small missed word in the first page in the following sentence "Abuhekmat in Oman told us about weather" anyway, thank you for the nice podcast.

It's great that you like the podcasts. Thanks for pointing out the mistake - I've fixed that now.
