Your Questions for the ESL Podcast Third Anniversary Video Podcast

anniversaryballoonbunch.jpgWe have celebrated our past two anniversaries by producing a video podcast. We want to do that again this year, but we need your help.

This year, Jeff will be answering listener questions. Do you have a burning question (something you want to know very much) about us or the podcast? If so, post a comment here and we will select a few to answer in the anniversary video podcast.

Thanks, in advance, for your help!

    Dear Lucy, dear Jeff,

    Congratulations on your 3rd anniversary! For me it’s the no.1 podcast.
    I hope you will go on with your work for the next 10 years or so. By then I will have reached a satisfying level of English. I can’t think of a better way of acquiring language skills. I keep telling that to my rather lazy students. My wish is simple- I’d like to see a picture of Lucy Tse. When you hear a person talking it helps to have an idea what that person looks like. Just one more thing I’d like to lhear something about is American accents. Can Americans tell a persons’ origins by their accent? Is there any sort of “standard American English” used in the media e.g.?

    Thanks and – take care
    Jutta

    Dear Lucy and Jeff,

    I have an interesting question for you for the video podcast and it is about the phrases “I find it!” or “I forget”
    Watching movies I always hear the phrase “I find it” instead of “I found it”, when someone actually find something. Or “I forget” instead of “I forgot”, etc.
    I will be happy to hear an answer and if you could clarify this question to me 😉
    Then someone found something, why did they use the verb “find” in the present tense?

    Sincerely yours,

    I want to know where Lucy’s ancestors are from. I wonder if they are from Southeast Asia since Lucy’s last name not seem to be American.

    By the way, I thought the cover people of “A Day in the Life of Jeff (a Man)” and “A Day in the Life of Lucy (a Woman)” are Jeff and Lucy. Am I wrong?

    I congratulate Jeff, Lucy and all the ESLPOD team with the third anniversary. You do great job and we really love you.
    I started to listen to ESL podcasts more then year ago and I noticed that my english improved very much. Recently i’ve started to watch TV serias “Friends” to practice my english and also for fun and it is obvious that your podcast really helps me undestand english language.
    Also I told all of my friends and collegues about ESLPOD. And know two of my friends and my girlfriend are also fans of ESLPOD. We like to listen to podcasts and sometimes discuss the episods.
    Thank you very much. I’m really looking forward for special video podcast!

    Hello Jeff,

    I have another question:

    I’ve listened to a number 100 anniversary pod ” An interview with Dr Jeff Mcquilan” which I really loved it.

    There, you told the sound you like best, is when the garage of your home is opening , when your wife is coming home…

    So it came across as you really love your wife, which is very, very good…

    I love my wife too…

    Well, tell me:

    What would you do for love? Everything? or almost everything?

    By the way…This question could be made to Dr Lucy as well….=)

    Is this a “burning question ” as Dr Lucy wrote above? =) I hope so…

    Best Regards,

    Eduardo Gomes Jr.

    Congratulations to ESLPOD team from Kiev, Ukraine! 🙂

    You guys make a really good job. After listening to your shows for a while I decided to find some other podcasts for more advanced learners. Since I’ve listened to more than 100 different shows so now I can surely declare that you’re the best. Everything you make is just as it should be. I mean the variety of topics, the presentation, the quality of sound, brilliant sense of humor. Awesome!

    In token of gratitude I always try to promote you everywhere. On my job there are enough listeners already to create a fun club 😉

    As for suggestions for upcoming video, I’m waiting eagerly to see Dr. Lucy Tse 😉

    Dear Dr.Jeff, Dr. Lucy and ESL team members,
    I do really appreciate your hard works and efforts in doing this for all the listeners around the world. I wish you enjoy running this podcast blog and will never get tired. If possible, I would like Jeff, Lucy, or any of the ESL members to share your most embarrassing moment(s) in your life. It would be more fun through Video clips. If not possible, that’s ok. We will still happy if we can see you all in the video.

    Thank you again, and hope we can meet someday !!!
