Hi Blerina,
I'm happy to hear you are working through the podcasts and that you like the site. We are planning to have more pronunciation materials in the future, but in the meantime, you can certainly practise your speaking by reading along with the podcast transcript.
Best wishes,
Adam

I never been watch women's football. Because it's really bored. And I usually play football with my friend, it's really a good time to relax, have a lots of  the smile. Wow great!
 

Hallo again ... the incredible team !!! its me again ...augie. I push myself to write this for say thank you and for exercising me in writing. not to long but one thing for sure i have been updated by this lovely site ....Bravo British council as always love and peace. fondly Augie

this is absolutely great podcast and thank you Tom for your instruction at the end , thanks for every one
love you....

In the podcast we listen the sentence from Ravi:
I’ve never watched a women’s football game, but now I think I will – just
to see what it’s like.
I know 'will' is used in the future but here we haven't any verb with this word. Can you explain the meaning of 'will' in this sentence? which others recommendations can you give me about it?
Best regards
Daniel
