Excellent podcast

I love this podcast. I am ESL student and have poor language skills and phonetic problems. The sequence of the topics, how the topic is explained, the methodology and useful examples, and the clarity of the pronunciation made of this podcast one of the best for me. It’s having a big impact on my English. Thanks Mandy!

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.
