Hi everyone. Those who come here often will notice that the site has not been updated for a while. It is still here and will still be here. All the posts will still be here, but the focus will change. I am going to have help and the blog will be more about communication between English learners and teachers. See you soon!
Recently I have taught a lot of new students. The same as I usually do, I talked to them about their study habits. Their reactions have left me a bit confused.
I know that I haven’t put up a podcast in a while; I am working on something that I hope is really cool.
In the meantime, here is an interesting podcast for intermediate speakers and higher.
I particularly recommend it for TOEFL or IELTS students but anybody who likes philosophy or thoughts about life should find it interesting.
