hi tess and ravi..... thank you for your amazing podcast...by the way the  jokes are not very well 

hi everyone.
i would like to have the power of flying and visiting new places quickly ,faster than aero plane.not only flying but also disappearing in one place and then appearing in another.it would be much fun and naughty too.for example.if i had this power ,i would go to  my school and play a trick with a teacher that's been cruel to me.i would enter the class and while the teacher is teaching ,i would roll up his sleeves and then dishevel his hair and he would not know who is doing it.it's only for fun of course but i would also then visit different countries of the world
 

I'm so happy to be a member to the British council.

After  my marriage, when later became a mum, I started not to like myself.  this situation lasted almost 2 years.  I needed a change for myself. I wanted to find the way to like  myself again. so I decided to start swimming again after 10 years . I like swimming cause it makes me  feel good with my body , my soul and my mind.. I don't know how or when this sport started but I'm pretty sure that people used to swim in the sea, rivers and lakes before swimming pools were designed

THank you very much, I like this website , please Adam can you help me to learn colocations,prepositions and phrasal verbs ​please!

Section 2 - I'd like to talk about
When I quitted a work 3 year ago, I felt bored in my life.
Because I loved my job and enjoyed my work without rest.
I searched clubs to get energy and took part in the Climbing club.
I started to go climbing with members once a week.
When I went to the top of the mountain, I could get freedom and peace of mind.
It made me feel happy. There was gorgeous scenery and clear air.
I bought equipment to experience much interest of the mountain.
Like stick, hat, shoes, bag and clothes. I could more enjoyable than before climbing.
Now I'm enjoying traveling instead climbing. One day I'll try to go to the mountain.
I want to be checked my sentence. Because I'm student, I make a mistake.
