    I love this quote: “If you think you can, you can, if you think you can’t, you’re right too.”
    And I like your way, how you encourage others to keep up their journey in terms of motivation and explanation. Learning another language, especially English, certainly opens to you the whole new perspective, the new posibilities and the new perception of the world in general. So, keep it up! We really do appreciate it (English learners from all around the world:)

    And yeah, I have to say something else)
    These very podcasts (150-155) need some fixing.
    When you try to download them you see only Error: 404 Not Found.
    I say it to you guys because you always say that we can download these podcasts and listen to you while we ride on a bus or savor something, and, guess what? We do that, seriously)
    That’s why I say that, I believe that I am not the only person who do that and sometimes, you know, it is necessarily to download some podcast beforehand because of poor Internet at some location. That’s the point)
