  1. The extract at a slow rate is awesome! It always helps to notice the pronounciation, whether one is at a beginner level or more advanced.

  2. I want to say something.
    Using both speeds on the conversation, slow and fast, is good for learning idioms. I even played the mp3 in a even faster speed for making the homework a liitle harder.
    But listening at a normal or faster speed is still better because at the outer world, people will speak naturally and will not expect to be understood.
    Keep using both speeds at the conversations, but in the case of the faster way, let´s listen a really fast way, we´ll get used to all speaking speeds.
    By the way, i didn´t know Jenny was married.

    1. I agree that listening to natural speed speaking is better because it is more realistic, but I also thought I would try adding the slower pace one for those who want the extra practice. Jenny….she’s full of surprises!

  3. Thank you very much for your great podcasts. It’s really useful.
    I love the way you teach, no matter if in slow or faster speaking. Both are great!
    Keep helping us and cheers for you!
