Hello QQ

If you right-click or hold and press on the audio player, you should see an option to 'Save Audio As' or something similar. On phones and tablets it can be a little tricky, so I would suggest using a computer if possible; otherwise, some users have told me that Firefox is the easiest browser to download files in.

Hope this helps!

All the best

It's a good thing to make celebrities, and it's interesting topic.

Hi
I listened to this podcast, it is very good and useful for me, I learned several different phrases and vocabularies. I like that especially session 7. The joke is very funny.

Hello. These postcards very beneficial for learning English.

I want to meet Jennifer Lawrence because she is so pretty and her eyes ara very attractive .she plays her roles very natural and I think she loves her job.
In my opinion most of the Hollywood actor and actress are well off to help poor people and it is so good for them to do work for charity,if I have a good income I will help too.

It's nice and understood

It's niceand easy material.

In my opinion the celebrities are looking for publicity by giving money to charities,so the both sides benefit,then why not?

Hello. Your podcast lessons are very useful. Its help me to improve my English.
