    I’ve just voted for you and you are really amazing and your podcast inspires me so much not only to improve my English skills but also to try new things, not to be afraid of diffrent life situations and to cope with them. Don’t ask me how exactly, I do not know myself – just in general ; )
    It’s also amazing to smile and even to laugh when I’m walking with my headphones on listening to yet another episode of your podcast making other people wonder what is going on! (Just as today while listening to the episode № 434 with Paul Taylor, it’s kind of hard to believe that I’ve listened to all of them!!! )
    By the way, WTF France is really amusing and my congtatulations on Raul’s up-coming wedding!

    Hi Luke
    I am the regular listener of your podcast. I am a great fan of your podcast. Your podcast has helped me a great deal in improving my English. So I think I owe you, literally. I want to donate but the problem is PAYPAL is not available in Pakistan. So, please guide me how I can donate.

    • Thanks for the message, I appreciate that!
      If you can’t donate with PayPal you could try an international bank transfer, but to be honest if it is too complex to manage, don’t worry about it. Instead you could consider getting involved in the transcript collaboration project or just vote for LEP in the British Podcast Awards.
      For the bank transfer, check here: teacherluke.co.uk/luke/support-luke/
