  1. I am not sure what the film Michael was talking about. I take a guess that the name of the film is Pink Panther. But maybe it’s Pink Punter. My English is not good enough to distinguish that word aurally.
    Michael is not good enough at playing tennis.

    1. Hi Vladimir. Yes, that’s right! I think those are difficult sounds [“a” like hat and “u’ like hut] to distinguish and pronounce, so you’ll get help with that in a future podcast episode!
