The loveliest language

Dear Susie - please let us know why you think German is the most attractive language. How can it match French which manages to turn ‘dustbin’ into the delightful ‘poubelle’?

I know I am not alone in thinking this is one well worth listening to. I learn so much about (more than just) the English language. With smattering of other languages, some history even. Never a dull moment. Hooked!

Definitely not a trampoose through words

Susie and Giles are a wonderful duo to listen to, they work together so well. These episodes flow like a pub conversation -an easy listen and a gentle pace, but they are packed full of little titbits that I desperately try to remember if only to bamboozle my friends with during the week. Addictive.
