    Hmm, Jeff and Lucy,
    You said, “We are grateful to our members and donors, because we are only able to produce this podcast with the generous help of our listeners.”
    You never know, “We ESL Podcast listeners are really, really GRATEFUL to our Greatest & Smartest teachers namely Jeff, Warren, and Lucy,
    truly because we English learners are ONLY ABLE to enhance our English skills with the GENEROUS help of our teachers!
    Hoping for better English acquisition, for us, otherwise, would have been a lost course , a pipe dream.
    Thanks to you, our dear teachers, getting up on a higher level of this English has been sort of a dream-do-come-true for us.
    Before I ran across this lovely and resourceful website, writing just a perfect sentence in English was almost impossible, let alone to speak it!
    Now that has changed a lot!
    I feel better now whenever I read or write or speak or listen to this language, English.
    Thanks to infinity….. ;)
