Arsenio’s ESL Podcast: Season 2 Makes Its Debut!

Guys, we have finally reached the conclusion of Season 1 (Elementary Level).  I hope everyone learned quite a bit a long the way, and if you had any questions, you definitely fired them away at me.

However, now we’re moving onto the Pre-Intermediate level.  This will be longer and a little bit more difficult.  My speaking will increase just a little from what it was in the Elementary level, so if it’s difficult for you to comprehend, I suggest you hear the entire first season before listening to this.
