I understood all the Carolina's history, and I felt sad for Her....Nice Lesson! I enjoyed Too much!!

Hello .
When I'm sad, I go to my house and then I listening music . I sing to sleep. I like this because it's a way to know me better. I love to read in my bed , too . This makes me feel very happy . I visite the countryside everyday because I live in it, you can find nature everywhere. It's amazing.

I've been learning English and I loved the Carolina's history :D :D

Poor Carolina, I understand her feeling and feel sympathy on her. Cause I ever encountered these issues I am working in an UK company, but my English is not well, sometimes I could not follow my foreign colleagues. One of my colleagues said "I could know nothing more." What a shame? Perhaps for our people who want to speak another language should brave enough to share and present our ideas without any worried. The language is just a tool not everything, when we have any idea just bravely take it to express yourself, if not, only keep silent will bring you disaster in future.
When I feel sad and depressed, I like running with out any targets, maybe I will run follow the road, maybe I will run near my flat or circling my flat. Anywhere is OK, when running I will encourage myself and speak some positive things to myself. I will cheer up afterward. Sometimes I will chat with my friends, but now I don't like this way because most of my friends have already built his own family, he also suffers some other problem. So I don't want to disturb my friends too much.

Hello zhengbingcumt,

I wouldn't pay much attention to what your colleague said – I'm sure that, with work and time, you can learn to express yourself in the way you'd like to. Have you seen the advice on our Help page? It might be useful for you.

Hi,
I live in near mountain. So when I wnat to taking a walk, just go out to the mountain.
There are a trail. It's quite close to my house. So whenever I want to walk or feel nature,
I go out and take a walk for 5min then I can reach the trail.

I love the Carolina story. I enjoy it. I always wait for listen other and other. It´s like a novel that you can´t stop reading. Emily is a very good friend, and help Carolina so much. I understand that the Carolina´s situation is very difficult, because she is in other Country, far from her family.

Sorry because i am late with the podcast. i have finished of reading that podcast and then i think the answer of the puzzle is wrong. If Sean doesn't have brothers and sisters, how could it be possible his father's son to be sean's brother? I think his father's son is sean's stepbrother, doesn't he? Yours faithfully!

Hello Rones,

The answer to the puzzle is at the end of the podcast. Try listening again, or take a look at the transcript (in the 'Instructions and downloads' section) to see the answer...
