    I have been hearing ELS Podcast since April this year.
    ESL Podcast 696 – Investing Your Money was the most difficult episode for me.
    I have no knowledge of “Investment.”
    So, there are many many words I don’t not understand.
    But I can keep going on because of your wonderful Learning guide and support ESL Podcast.
    Thank you.
