    Jeff and Lucy with your permision

    I wanna throw in some useful info

    folks
    I intend to introduce u to a redio station which is extreamly useful and effiecient for English learners.
    Emiliano it may interest you buddy
    here ,in Toronto there is a local radio station called 1010 ( the frequency is 1010 ,am )
    it is a radio talk show discussing all rang of topics from children to narcs( police for drugs)
    I don’t know if you can tune in to the frequency I just mention from ur home town
    it is the best
    one of the thing I love about this radio programee best Is the commercial which is on at 20 minutes intervals( repeat every 2o minutes).
    It means you hear the exact same sentences every 20 minutes for at least 10 days.
    It is like ur brain is bombarded with them ,as a result ,after a while, you use them inadvertantly
    and so do the news which is on at 30 minutes intervals
    the name of the program is 1010
    the talk show expedites the process
    it is a kind of self-study thing
    I have been tuned in to the station for a while and the result is phenomenon
    Emiliano,
    try it
    money back guranty ,you will get the same result
    there is another thing to it
    the host and hostest are articulate to a fault( big time) , what is more, they use a lot of Jeff and Lucy expressions,terms,and words.
    The other day ,one hostesst used the word jade
    and another host said “for my money”
    good thing about it when you hear it there ,it get edged in your mind infinity.you know why, because you have Jeff discussed before and all of sudden u came across it in a totall different setting.
    Tune In if u can
    Am,frequency 1010
    peace out folks

    Peter, I have it.
    It´s name is Newstalk 1010?
    Yes, I think it is, and I´m listening to it just in this moment.
    Such an americant strong accent…….crazy and a little difficult too.

    Thank you Peter always present.

    best regards.
