The best

I love this. I am from China and pursue my 2nd graduate degree right now. I alway struggle with English pronunciation since middle school. We have poor English learning back in old days in small towns. I am grateful to find this podcast and by listening to the first several episodes, I found a big difference on my pronunciation. Thanks a lot! Will keep listening every day.
