    Dear Steven,
    As an realtivly old member of this family , I would like to welcome you to this community of English learners.
    First of all,I want to resasure you that you are in good hands.
    My friend,
    Eslpod is a cyber Lingustic school by means of which we familiarize ourselves with modern English. But, Eslpod never stops there my friend; it goes way further.
    Eslpod features facts and figures in terms of American history,culture,and geography as well.
    But,the kicker my friend is ” Learnung Guide,”an expansion into even more materials with respect to Anerican English and culture.
    We have the luxury of having Jeff and Lucy as our profs as well as warren who indulges us from time to time with his prowlerful, yet eccentric posts on Eslpod blog that is meant to give us the oportunity to improve our writing and comprehension skills.
    A piece of advice my friend,what ever you do never miss Warren posts.they have a lot to offer.

    Keep in mind my friend :
    “Eslpod is not a right ,eslpod is a privilege.”

    The bonehead:))

    Hi Peter,

    I have read the word „bonehead“ in a few of your last postings. Now, I know the meaning.
    Yes, you are right, to be a member of the ESL family is a privilege.
    I learn such a lot new things, also new types of greetings.

    Best wishes
    Nele
