Listener Feedback:  (email from Javier from Scotland) Hello Craig and Reza,

This is Javi I don't know if you remember me, I emailed you about 1 month ago. I listen to your postcast every morning while I'm working as housekeeper in a hostel in Scotland. 

Personally, I don't find them so difficult to understand but I still find (it) quite difficult to understand native English speakers when they have a normal conversation. Most of the time I get lost. 

It's true that my English's gotten much better since I came here, but I know is not enough. 

I know that you've been teaching for years so if you didn't mind, I would be greatful if you could give some advice, which could help me to improve my English faster. 

I hope you're enjoying the weather in valencia, 


Best regards from Fort William.

Thank you so much, Javier Trimiño 


I'm not enjoying the weather in Valencia, Javi, and I wish I was in Scotland! I hate the heat and humidity.


Time and practice! - go to pubs, start conversations, smile and be friendly. Speak to anyone who will listen.

You're listening to podcasts in English, which is great! - Make friends, socialise as much as possible. Go out with people.

Speak to people in the hostel. Ask lots of questions - Ask where the baked beans are.
