    What is up with all carmagedon business.
    I didn’t get a chance to listen to the news.
    Did eyerything go smoothly during the weekened
    Is The construction and denelishing is all over
    By the way Jeff,
    I use the term”freuidian slip” a lot
    I m wondering if it is a common term
    Or sth that one hears every millineum

  2. Peter Says:

    Jeff,
    That I know
    Off-kilter is not common at all
    Like the term” to take umbrage” which is not common either
    Some thing throws somebody off-kilter.
    Every time I use one of these term I should explain the terms right after.

  3. Peter Says:

    Fellow classmates,
    The problem is ,there are countless words in the language we are trying to get a hand on. it is almost close to impossible to learn all of them.even the greatest Jeff does not know all the words out there. I bet my bouttem dollar on it.
    To make the matters even worst,
    It some times happen that one clulessly spends a great amount of time and Energy on learning uncommon words or the words that are long forgotten.
    The beauty of Eslpod is to help us steer clear of that path,and more importantly to keep us current with even the slightest changes in terms of words and expression. A good example of this account is the word”Carmagedon.”
    I live close to Jeff , yet I didn’t know the term till Jeff utters it.
    No body speaks the language of shakespear any more ,yet one can find all the relevant words used back then in the dictionary.
    But,the question is ” does any one out there still say”thy ?”
    Undoutadly ,no , a big NO
    So ,don’t go nuts with all fancy words , now that you have Eslpod around.
    I didn’t have the luxury(Eslpod ) back home.

    Guys ,
    Don’t get side tracked with fancy ,highfluten words. Keep it simple. And ,let Eslpod be the judge of words for us.(Eslpod uses ,we uses)
    Keep it simple,and current

    After about two hours , I will be listening to those pods, drinking a cup of coffee, lying (not sleeping :) ) in my bed.

  5. Peter Says:

    God, in his infinite wisdom has given us this blog :)
    Count your blessing then

    Dear Lucy I would like to listen to you making the English Cafes more frequently.

    The last one about Liberia has been really good and it is like a great pleasure
    to listen to your nice voice making it.

    I would like to ask Jeff for letting you make them more frequently.
    Please Jeff, let her if you have something to do about the final decision.
    For us it is really good to have Lucy´s voice as much as possible.

    Thank you my friends and sorry Jeff, I know you are the best
    but I do like Lucy very very much.

  7. Peter Says:

    If 20 years of studying English has taught me anything,it is that there is no better source of proper Linguistic method than what Jeff has come up with.
    So, take it from me and jump on the bandwagon .
    Hitch your wagons to Eslpod.
    Upkeep Eslpod

  8. Peter Says:

    Eslpod is doing wonder with us
