    That´s true, the best form of starting the New Year is
    Becoming a Basic or a Premium Member……
    like Peter, Betty, Dan, Sergio ……and so many friends.

    Me too, of course, for ever and ever.

    Thanks dear Lucy, Jeff, Warren and ESL staff…you are doing
    so incredible good work all round the world that all
    donations should be Welcome Always.

    Now ,you are talking Emiliano
    Yep, we should see us as some sort of obligation we feel towards Edlpod.
    We should contribute to the deed.
    We should keep Eslpod going.
    We should walk the walk not just talk the talk.
    Learning guide is ridiculously cheap comparing to what it offers.
    10 dollars per mound is a laughable montly fee for fantastically done English lesson booklets of 10 or 11 pages issued three times a week ,12 times per month.
    Guys , get on it. It is a win win situation. U get unbeatable quality English lessons ,and at the same time, u help Eslpod produce more quality Espispds for the years to come. You win both ways . It is like having the best of both worlds.

    Fellow citizens of Eslpod , step up!!
    Eslpod needs us
