    Hi people,

    There is a great episode about cooking and Luke cooked a great chicken recipe which I also did and it was really good. So #328. Cooking with Luke – Verbs and Expressions in the Kitchen.
    and it is a short one I think because he was hungry and couldn’t wait more time smelling the good meat…

    So I hope you are going to come to transcribe because people are going away after the first chunks. I know it is not as easy as people believe because one thing is to think that we understand luke very well, and another is when we must write down what they say… But after several months things become easier because we learn about pronunciation, vocabulary and we have a better listening… But we need to stay for a long time because to learn language is a lifetime job.

    See you people.

    So if you want to improve it you are welcome. the transcription project is not only transcribing but also proofreading and suggesting corrections.

    Thank you very much to people who have worked hard doing this episode.

    Pleasure to virtually meet you, sir!

    Just subscribed to the mail-list. I stumbled upon your podcast having installed TuneIn Radio app on my cell phone. I’ve listened already for a half-dozen episodes and they are just brilliant.

    I am 2.5-lingual myself :-). I was born in Moscow, so Russian is my L1. I’ve done my Masters degree and wrote my Masters thesis all in English, so it is 0.9 x L2, and finally for last 25 years I live in Israel, so I speak and read Hebrew, this would be 0.6 x L3. Sum it up – you get 2.5 :-).

    Hoping to improve on my heavy Moscovian accent with the help of your podcast. It’s been just lovely so far!

    Boris

    P.S. Just voted for you at (on?!) British Podcast Awards site.
