hi there. i am sorry i couldn't find the answer about the question the talks about Sarah and her flat. nothing mentioned in series 1 episode 4. i mean for the December questions.
also we're eager to know the winners of November.

my favorite singer is Justin Bieber he is teenager singer he can sing song in girl and boy's voice he is most popular singer 

I'd like to meet tess.

Hi, nice to meet you.
There are many countries' friends. Russia, Egypt, Oman, India....etc.
During about 30 minutes, I can't concentrate on potcast.
So I didn't answer the 7 questions. Anyway I'm studying hard.
I will have a good relationship with you and British Council.
Thank you, have a good day. See you ~~

The person who I'd most like to meet is my father. He suddenly passed away about three years ago. He was in hospital for only one month before he died of cancer. Anyone of my family didn't know his health was not good until the doctor told us. I was shocked when I knew he got cancer and he was gone before my shock was gone. I miss him so much now.

Hello,
I'm very sorry to hear about your father. It must have been very upsetting to lose him in such a short time. I hope you have good memories of him.
Best wishes,

I want to learn English more  

Hello.
I am Mr. Rim
I will participate in the teachers training program next week.
I think I can meet some teachers from Seoul, Gyeonggi, and Incheon.
I would like to meet some teachers from other cities and talk about teacher's challenges in Korea.
First of all, I am excited to learn how to teach vocational English and to meet excellent teacher trainers. I think they will help me teach English and vocational English.
Thank you....
Best Regards...

Hello Mr. Rim,
Good luck with the teacher training you are doing next week. Is it organised by the British Council? I know the BC does a lot of teacher training work in Korea.
Best wishes,
