hello sir,i want to know, in series 2 why 'our person in' remove from the podacst. because in ''our person in'' we get listen different people from the different part of world and about his country. in series 2 music is also remove from the podcast. series 2 is less effective then series 1.
when i see series 4, i see series 4 become very short. i want to hear podcast at least up to 30 minutes. i request you to after series 4 please prepare podcast just like series 1. no matter we get only podcast in one month.

I love shopping, . When I go market to buy an item with lower price, I am happy.

Hi, you are equal than my wife.....................

Sometimes I enjoy shopping. But it happens, that I would not like to go shopping for choosing anything.

Albert Einstein is the famous scientist who has made many important openings in a science.

Hello everybody:
I don't understand something at the end of Section 5: Carolina. Tess says: "terrible link" what does it mean? what is the link?
Thank you for you help
Bye
Gilberto

Ok, now I understand. Thanks Chickenteriyaki and Kirk

Hello Gilberto,

Chickenteriyaki is right. Here when Tess says 'link', she's referring to the transition from the topic of writing to the next section. 

Thanks, Chickenteriyaki!
