Customer ReviewsSee All
Hello, I am from Greece and I teach english to youngsters as well as adults.
I find this podcast very useful for listening and speaking practice for adult
students, especially to those on an intermediate or pre-intermediate level.
It's interesting, the pronunciation is as it should be, it's not too long, which
means that you can use it in every lesson.
It's a tool really.
