English lessons to improve your grammar, vocabulary and listening skills. We'll help you take your English to the next level! Lecciones para aprender y mejorar tú inglés.

Hello and welcome to Mansion Interviews, a podcast which gives me an excuse to talk to interesting people while at the same time improving your English.

Today we're speaking with the lovely Nic Burmester from the ex.pat podcast happylifemove (happylifemove.com).

On her podcast, Nic interviews people who have changed countries (like me and Nic!) to find a better and happier life

Nic is orginally from Germany and now she lives in Brighton on the South coast of England.

There are a few seconds of bad audio at the beginning of our chat. We were having some problems with Skype, but it gets better so please don't stop listening. Keep going and I'm sure you'll enjoy the conversation.
