Customer Reviews

An enjoyable overview of commonly used expressions

These are very short episodes but Adam does a very good job of covering where the phrases originated, examples of common usage, and where they became popularized in recent times. No frills, but frills are not needed. Well done and worth a listen.

Has been great but in disappointment

This American idiom episode has been one of the best until Chinese is added. Please change the name to American/Chinese Idiom. Otherwise people will be confused.

Hi lewis,

I really like your podcast, i always has been looking for idioms and american pronunciation but mixing chinese is bit confusing, as spanish speaker.
