6 Minute English Podcasts (BBC Podcasts)

I enjoy of listening to these podacasts they're very good for learning English.
You can improve your listening and your vocabulary.
And the 2 important benifits are having clean lyrics and short audios.
So everyone can listen to it and not taking your time much.

discriminational contents

Stop calling Wuhan virus! bbc is ridiculous, it’s still unknown where it is from. It’s an infectious disease and the name will definitely influence people and economy in Wuhan. Imagine if I say London plague. The name is discriminational. The virus has name, it’s called covid-19.
