    Guys I signed for the premium membership about one year ago,and I am over satisfied with what is offered in the learning guide compare to the required fee
    it is ridiculously under priced

    Don’t kid yourself. If you are into gaining a proper set of English communication skills ,The learning guide is the key.

    Dear ESLpod,

    In ESL Podcast 590 – Paying Airline Fees , there is a sentence: there is a whole slew of added fees. Why dose it use there “is” instead of there “are”? Isn’t the subject “added fees”? Since fees is plural countable noun, it should use plural verb, shouldn’t it?
