In this episode: Civil Engineering

Listener Feedback: Audio Feedback - Mamen

Listener Feedback: Alfredo - Should we go to Italy and teach English? Only if there's homemade Italian food!

I'm Pablo, a civil engineer who has moved to UK last January.

I usually hear (listen to) all ours (your) podcast (your podcasts), and I think that it is a big help in order to improve my listening and vocabulary.

In (At) this moment, I am looking for a job as (an) engineer in Cambridge or around (in/around Cambridge).

If you accept some ideas for podcast, I would like that you talk (I would like you to talk) some day about engineering.
Perhaps, this topic is not too general in terms of vocabulary but is only an idea!! haha!

I think you are doing a very good job with the podcasts, I hope to continue hearing it (listening to them)!

Thank you for your time.
