    I have finished listening to the English Cafe 340 just now.

    I know it is only Tuesday here in Hong Kong, and I have already finished listening to my Wednesday learning material.

    Jeff & Lucy have always been very generous to us. They give us the lessons before they were due.

    I felt I need to write here today because I have enjoyed listening to Jeff’s answers to the questions from ESLPOD.com’s listeners, and I want to thank everyone who have asked the questions so that I got to listen to them. There are so much that I do not know and I never thought of asking.

    Of course I enjoy listening to everything else as well, not just the ‘questions and answers’.

    All the best.

    Dear Jeff

    Please note that there is no need to upload this message if it is better not to. I think this message has no interest to our friends here. I should have sent you an email but too lazy to do that.

    Please forgive me for being a pain in the neck.

    I am not sure if you are trying to catch us out, you have in the list above ‘Monday’ and ‘Friday’ in the wrong place.

    I was looking for ‘Giving CPR’ but could not find it, thus found that the two days were in the wrong place.

    I am a weird student! I take everything too serious, no good!

    Have a Happy Easter!

    Betty :)
