    Guys,

    We have been with this high-end podcast for a long while . In all fairness ,we have learned learning something new every single day over the past couple of years for free. We didn’t pay even a penny for what we have taken away from this podcast incessantly.

    It is time to give something back for all we have gained
    Joining The Learning Guide is the least we can do.
    Common people!!! That action is louder than verbal praise!!!!
    My dear blog mate Out there ,
    Yes, you and you!!
    All of you guys,
    Be more attentive to people who armed you with a global language
    We no have problem anymore , we can go galavanting across the world with no fear of being numb and death linguistically.
    Now, we have the capacity of addressing our concerns internationally
    We are from different corners of the world with different mother tongues and culture
    Yet, on this blog we interact!
    We share our concern, joy,and happiness
    We greet each other with the same language
    We share information, we learn from our cultures, we make cyber friends
    My friend out there,
    Please answer me this very question who has made all this possible?
    Jeff ,Luci, Warren ,and other Eslpod members
    Sorry guys,
    No mean to be rude or disrespectfull
    Just, I think it is time to grease ( help them contonue thier top-notch progaram)the Eslpod cogwheels!
    Peace out
