I continue to cooperate with Riichard Coombes from England in creating new English podcasts for lingq.com.
This time I can offer for all English learners two new ones.
The first podcast is the English vershion of my article ‘An ethnic Profile of Russian Man’: Login - LingQ
And the second one is an interesting Richard’s story about Wales:
We were standing atop Bray Head in Ireland some distance south of Dublin, and I thought I could see distant land on the horizon. Then a local woman remarked that she could see Wales. My wife heard the woman and immediately started scanning the Irish Sea, saying, “Whales? I don’t see any whales. Where are the whales?”
Yes, there are a lot of English words which have the same pronunciation: sea-see, meet- meat etc. They have a certain difficulty for the learners.
But I see that sometimes they are difficult to undersrand for the native speakers as well.
