Podcast 10 (1)


Podcasts are a simple and digestible media form, and it is extremely easy to multitask while listening to them. In our language podcasts, we will discuss  interesting facts about Languages and sometimes even Grammar.

Our usual podcasts are categorized into  3 levels: easy, medium and hard. Today’s episode is Easy.

different. Find out the differences.
