Hello The LearnEnglish Team
I see the podcast lasts 31 minutes while there are only 7 questions to answer. U know, there 're a lot of information. If we have more questions, we will listen effectively.
I hope u will consider my opinion.
Thank u so much:D

Hello! :D
I'm hoping to hear the third series in short time too. This podcast is really nice and very helpful to improve my English skill. This is my favorite my podcast. I really thank you all.

I'm looking forward to listen the third series in a short period...! I hope it will be prepared soon...
I used to listen it like a radio station programme in my car and on my mp3 when I'm cooking for my family.
I hope one day I will be able to speak english fluently and use it  correctly as a doctor in a foreign country.
Thanks for helping me a lot.
Have a nice day for all listeners.
