We spoke about wine in episode 210 and what better podcast to go with wine than cheese. Do you have a favourite cheese? You’ll learn about some different types of cheeses and some cheese idioms in this episode of Aprender Inglés with Reza and Craig.
5-star review on iTunes from Gina Correa from Brazil
Even though it’s an English podcast for Spanish people that want to learn English, I as a Brazilian am simply loving to take a ride with Spanish people.
I have recently discovered these amazing podcasts, and they are literally just perfect, because with their chat they can transmit information about English that I have been searching for in traditional courses for years.
And best of all, with a good and great spontaneous mood. Congratulations and thanks both of you, Reza and Craig for sharing your good didactic humor with us !
