Hello and welcome to Mansion Interviews, a podcast created to improve your English, while at the same time giving me an excuse to talk to interesting people.
This episode we talk to Alex of verbling.com.
Regular listeners of the podcast I do with Reza called Aprender Ingles con Reza y Craig, will know that we’ve been looking at ways in which you can practise your speaking online.
Many of you have said how much you would like to speak English with a native speaker and practise in a community of English students.
We may have the answer for you here. I spoke to Alex of verbling.com and he explained how you can benefit from Verbling and improve, not only your speaking, but all aspects of your English. So here’s Alex with more details.
