    • Hi,

      Thanks for your feedback. I am pleased that some good Melbourne people are helping you. I am very happy that your students find my podcasts and website useful. I would be very happy to receive emails from them and I would enjoy replying to each one. I know that it can help to motivate learners when they can communicate in their new language.
      Have a great day.
