    Guys, it is me again
    I just finished studying the latest sequence of Learning Guide
    It is amazing!
    Learning guide accommodates you with more detailed explanation of what Jeff and Lucy covers on Eslpod
    It gives cultural regencies as well as practical, up to date sentence examples for every single new words completed with a reading comprehension portion, a self-evaluation segment that allows a further assessment on how far you got ahead in your presute of learning the language.
    I am telling you guys the comprehension part is the best. It entals very well-prepared questions of all over the episode. I typically , listen two or three times listen to amazing Jeff :)( without reading the written part of the entire of what Jeff says from A to Z embeded on each episode) and then try to answer those pertinent questions. It is challenging folks . First , It was hard for me to comperehend the whole thing and answer the questions correctly.but,now I do it way better. What that seemed and impossible task to me is now just a moderat brain teaser.
    Guys,
    Sign up for it.
    That way ,you perfect the skill

    We enjoy the podcast!!!!
    Common Jeff stop being moderate
    I can just speak for myself. But ,I think it is the case for all the listeners. They get a great kick out of it everytime the plug in the Eslpod
    And I personally get an additional euphoria kick out of it every time I indulge in Learning guide:))))

    You know what,
    Nature abhors a vaccum( proverb)
    God helps nature if Jaff And his musketeers stop/discontinue Eslpod:))))
    I am wondering what alternative nature comes up with,highly likely none
    Nature abhors a vaccum means if something disappear or dostriy nature has a way of alternate it
    So , don’t sweat if you loose a girlfriend nature will subtitute another one
    Just there are two things in the world that nature fails to fill the gap which are : mothers and Eslp:))-

  4. Peter Says:

    Lads ,
    Please don’t think that I am buttering up or playing up to Jeff and kids around the Eslpod:))))
    I have done my fair share of searching and checking other English-related podcasts. Eslpod is one of a kind!
