    This week promises a lot of knowledge. I am looking forward to watching all the podcasts whenever they are available.

  2. Aecio Flavio Perim says:

    I have just seen the ESL Podcast 1124 – Hiding Money Offshore. It is a lesson for those who want to hide money in foreign country to escape from taxes and is risking to be caught by justice. Be careful. It is not worth it.

    Where are you, folks? Something wrong with you? I hope not.

  5. Dan says:

    Hey Humans.

    How are you doing.

    Just out of curiosity, to anyone who wants to answer, what do you use your English for?

    Personally it’s mostly for watching videos on You Tube.
    Speaking with my German neighbor during the summer.

    I would say 70% videos, 25% reading and 5% communicating both orally and in writing.

    What about you guys?

  6. Aecio Flavio Perim says:

    Honestly, I don’t use my English very often, Dan. I don’t even know why I learn English. I don’t have plans to leave Brazil, I don’t have friends here whom I can speak English with, I have only my friends here in the podcast and it is all to me. One thing I can tell you, I am a good friend, a real friend, who is not capable to hurt one friend. Believe me.

    Just I have to say the same as Tania, where are your blog’s readers, go ahead and tell us something more about you and your country.

    Dan, I have been using my English when I was working in the Bank, long time ago, after that I have even taught some to four or five
    friends, just speaking with them, reading some easy novels with them a so for.

    I have used it also for traveling some years ago, but after meeting the best site in the web ESL I have improved it absolutely till the point
    that I have not any problems to use it when I have been in England, Germany or Netherland.

    Along four years I have been reading books only in English, that was a difficult purpose and I did it reading some books I have always
    wanted to read in the original version.
    One of the best have been The Lord of the Rings, more than a thousand pages, but even other of my favorite English writers that was
    a huge pleasure to read.

    Now I am just a little out of this English World and it is really a pity. May be taken care of Cuca it is a hard work that gives not enough
    relaxing time to read in English, writing in my blog, listening some music or watching some Opera or movie with her takes some other
    time in my life.
    I woul like to study or reading more English, but some how being outside I have seen I have a nice good level of English, so it could
    make me more lazy to take the language so seriously as I took it before.

    That’s all dear Dan.
    English language has give me too much in my life, it has been like living another life opening lot of windows and doors, but also it
    gave me the posibility of talking with people from all over the world.

    I love English, it is so different from my Castellano or Spanish, that gives my world another different perspective. My gratitude to
    this language it is enormous and my gratitude to Jeff and Lucy it is even bigger because they gave me the great push to introduce
    me absolutely.

    Thank you always and for ever dear friend Jeff and thanks a lot to you also dear Lucy, my misterious lady.
    Of course thanks to you Warren dear professor, your writing has been always perfect but even more important your way of
    thinking has been like a life guide.
    Thanks a Lot Warren.
