In this episode: Technology Vocabulary

Listener Feedback: Sergio

My name is Sergio and I am from Spain. I work in a very important Hotel in Madrid, and we speak very often with our company mates (colleagues/workmates) from Paris, London or Hong Kong,

so I looked for a way to improve my English level, and I found your podcast two months ago.

As I work in the computer department, it is possible for me to be listening to you most of the time while I am working, so I use to (usually) listen to three or four of your podcast (podcasts) daily.

(Go to episode 6 to revise 'used to', 'be used to' and 'get used to') http://www.inglespodcast.com/2014/01/31/aprender-ingles-con-reza-y-craig-6/

I have to say THANK YOU. I have noticed that since I subscribed to your podcasts, I have improved my listening skills much more than I expected!

Well, I would like to ask you about two things. First, I was looking for a podcast related with (to) computers, but I couldn't find anything.

Could you speak in a future podcast about computers? I mean, common phrasal verbs, vocabulary or expressions, whatever. The second question is about 'tag questions'.

I would like to know some tips or tricks to use them fluently. I try to use them, but I have to think hard about them, so I sound strange when using them.

(We spoke about tag questions in episode 20) http://www.inglespodcast.com/2014/04/14/reza-doesnt-like-raw-eggs-does-he-airc20/
