    Muito, muito bom.
    Eu não conhecia a expressão “to beat around the bush”, e no geral todo o podcast vale a pena.

    Parabéns Alessandro pelo trabalho de primeira e muito obrigado por nos fornecer mais essa fonte de informação.
    Vlw ;)

    Hi Steve!

    Thanks for the valuable tip! I finally got round to pronouncing the contraction “won’t” correctly and I must confess: it was a weight off my shoulders!

    All the best :)

    Hello hello hello Steve!

    As an old admirer of your work, I really loved the idea of having another source of your valuable lessons! The first podcast was great and very helpful, and I’m already looking forward to the next ones!

    I wanna thank you specially for the tip about “world” pronunciation! I really have a problem with the “rl” sound, but now it became much more easier!

    Cheers,
    Cris

    hello! hello! hello Cris!
    It’s always great to hear from you.
    I remember you all the way back to when I used to do Peppy Radio on Peppy Club.
    I’m glad to have been of some help!

    Take care,

    Steve

    I liked very much this podcast with Steve, I’m a bad student but always come here to learn something new.
    I was surprised how I could understand almost all that he said.

    I’m waiting for the next and the next…

    (I haven’t used a translator, it’s my English that is terrible. But is practicing that you learn, right?)

    Moro em Toronto e gostaria de saber alguns costumes canadenses como por exemplo: é comum ajudar a dona da casa a arrumar a cozinha apos um jantar entre amigos? Ou soa intromissão?
    Desde já muito obrigada!

    Hello Thiago!
    I am happy you enjoyed the podcast!
    I am also happy that you wrote that by yourself.
    You will get better and better!
    Great!

    Steve,

    Yeah, Peppy Radio was really awesome and funny, but I’ve known your videos for ages – since 2007, maybe? :D

    And I just realized that on my previous comment I said “more easier”, which is an absurd haha! I just wanted to emphasize how much your tip helped and ended up making a silly mistake! Well, it happens! :D

    Bye bye!
    Cris

    Hi Steve!

    I was wondering if you speak Portuguese, ’cause you spell the words in portuguese so clearly and it seems you don’t have any trouble saying Brazilian’s names.

    You are a topman Steve. I hope someday i speak english like you :)

    I’d just like to tell that Steve Ford hints are helping me very much. Thanks to they I’m really improving my listening and speaking skills. Steve, you rock!

  • 22/10/10  
    João B. L. Ghizoni diz: 29

    Hey, Steve, thanks a lot for your reply! I must confess I’m a bit surprised to learn that you say you speak American English. (Well, I reckon I can’t tell the American English from the Canadian English accent.) By the way, can Americans and Canadians tell the two pronunciations apart?

    You wrote “here” for “hear”, right? (I know I’m really picky! LOL)

    I was in Alberta for a month — what a magnificent place! Besides Calgary and Edmonton, I also went further to the south and visited Lethbridge and Drumheller. What a nice time I had there!

    All the very best to you, Steve. It’s always a pleasure to listen to (and read) you!

    to:
    Fernando: I am happy you loved it!
    Julio: Hey Julio, you can do it!
    Eliel: Hey Eliel, you rock too and I am happy to have been of some help!
    João : Hey João, no worries. As you can see, even native speakers make spelling mistakes and typos. Heck, I even find them in published notable newspapers and books. :)
    Regarding your question about accent. Let’s put it this way, if I phone someone in California, they have no idea I’m from Canada and vice versa.

    João B. L. Ghizoni diz: 31

    One more great reply from you, Steve. Thanks a lot. Have a nice weekend!
