Hi Craig and Reza
Your comments about my accent were very kind..thanks. I’ll keep practicing.
If you ever come to Lyon, I’ll be happy to show you the city, and I could say that I’ve met you.
By the way, I would like to wish you very happy podcast number 200.
Best wishes, Pilar.

What made us become teachers – How does it affect our life in general? What do we like best/least?
Jose Alfredo. Bordón – Regards from Paraguay.
Thanks for your podcast. It’s helping me a lot in improving my English.
I listen to it everyday in (on/during) my commute to work.
You’ve mentioned that you are a big fan of technology. What do you think about all the improvements that are taking place in that field?
For instance, (the) artificial intelligence and the possibility that many current jobs could be automated by machines.
What sort of concerns do you have about the topic?
Also, there’s a movement called transhumanist that states that we can overcome death in the future with the advances of technology in fields like ADN (= DNA) manipulation (which could extend life expectancy) or perhaps uploading your brain to a computer so you can live virtually in it.
I’m a bit worried about these subjects.

Email from Rafa Leon
Good morning from México, this is Rafael León again from Guadalajara, México land from the tequila and mariachi, I have a great challenge for you for the episode 200, in the episode 131 Reza spoke very well in Spanish, He said “ Es que yo en mi primer año en España, yo no hablaba ni una palabra en Español” etc. But I’ve never listened to you speak Spanish.
And now this is the challenge. Could you speak Spanish for 10 seconds?
Voice message from Curro
Is there any difference between English and Irish people?
A question from Angélica Bello:
I would like to know what was the original reason to come here to Spain, and what is keeping you here? Wouldn’t you want to return to to UK eventually?
