  1. I am studying English language at the university. I chose for my final thesis of graduation the theme: ‘’Is English better to be taught by a native speaker, or a teacher who understands your own language?’’ To complete my resource work I kindly ask you for some help: Please answer the following short surveys and send it to all other native English speaker teachers you may know: 1- http://urlmin.com/4qi1y 2- http://urlmin.com/4qi20 Thank you very much in advance for your kind cooperation.

  2. The interview with Ben who cycled from London to Paris was great. You took us along with his journey.

  3. You are amazing. It is the first time I listened your podcast but sure I will listen your episodes everyday.

  4. Hi! Luke there isn’t word to thank you for amazing podcasts, it;s great to listening your comment about several important matters. How I did say times ago you are top in communicatons. Look I,m from Brazil but I hope to visit
    your country one day. Have a nice friday.

  5. I think this podcast became my addiction last months. I’ve left my previous job and being jobless it’s perfect to spend some time on learning English. I can’ wait until next episode, especially about tenses and grammar, because it’s my weakness:) If you could record an episode about Scotland and Scottish people – I could put it into my Polish blog in which I put a lot of effort last time. I’m in Poland now, but one day I will probably move to Scotland and I want to get as much knowledge about this place as I can. I really enjoyed listening podcast about Scottish accent and different accents as well.

    Hi Luke,
    I was looking for podcasts with Scottish accent and I found the episode 58, what is such a great coincidence, because I’m from Brazil and my brother is currently living at Dundee. It was really great hear Mrs. Leslie speaking about the peculiarities of the Scottish accent. I will visit my brother soon and the episode helped me a lot. So, congratulations for the amazing job. I wish you the best, and thanks for the great cultural content.

    Thank you Luke for your great podcasts. I love your podcasts but I want to give you a suggestion. You have invited many native people in you podcasts but never ever tried a non-native person. What if you interview me next time? Don’t worry I can speak English to a satisfactory level. No matter I am far off from you… long live Skype………………
