    Back at my wonder time in English language teritory when I wasn’t intoroduced to Eslpod Yet ,I had one moto:
    ” always hold out for a better English source.”
    Since my lucky land in Eslpod teritory I changed my motto to:
    “Always stick to eslpod As Eslpod brough it up over the top.”
    Guys
    I hate to see you struggle like me. Let me tell you guys. , it is frusterating ,discouraging and exhausting.
    Let’s keep eslpod up and running. Let’s make it our pledge.
    Let’s stand by Jeff and Lucy to keep our eslpod running.
    We are all a cyber family,an as a family let’s stck to gether and help eslpod stick it out.
    Let’s pump up some green. We owe it to ourselves

    Yours

    peter,

    Jeff and Lucy,
    Really sorry for not being able to drop so much lines here recently.
    Just putting down some notes here to let you know that I’m still here on this lovely Blog. :D :D
    Hmm, of this week’s podcasts, I love to get to know about “Green Card” and of course to have one. (Just for getting a chance to say a really big “Thank You” to my great teachers in person. ;) )

    “Managing a Classroom” ??
    Lucy,
    Here in this land of Myanmar, the new season of schooling has just become just only three days ago.
    So your lesson hits the spot.

    And regarding the episodes-796:
    This one is an up-to-date lesson, too, Lucy.
    Today, videoconferences are taking a great vital role in business world.
    Therefore, so love to learn about it with its associated words and phrases!

    Again, so sorry to be brief, Jeff and Lucy. Thanks.

    Myo,
    Let’s not get a head of ourselves.
    Still,we are not sure what the conference episod thing is all about. But I may as well could learn a thing or two from it.
    You know , in real life you rarely stumble upon some certain topics because they are not regular occurrences. I mean, they are not sth you deal with everyday.
    You know , I have been Living here for quite while still don’t know squat about video conference-related words.
    That is the serendipity of eslpod that more often than not it discuses topics that are inaccessible in real life.
    You see what I am getting at.
    You can’t even begin to imagine how valuable are those specific topics.
    Lucy always incorporates key words and phrases in eslpod’s specialty diolgs seriously ,sometimes Eslpod’s eslpod discusses an area of expertise :)

    Yours
