The Website is an extremely useful tool to use both as a foundation for a Business communication course design and and for planning separate lessons. Besides, it’s simply great pleasure to work with it.

My name is Ronaldo, I live in San Francisco, CA, If you are interested in talking, you can contact me . I’m not looking for money it’s just for the pleasure of making new friends and trying to help somebody to improve themselves, as I was helped one day. We can use MSN or Skype for the interaction.
Hello Ronaldo, I wish speak with you, you’re a nice boy. Thank you, see you
I would like to talk to somebody and improve my english skills
Hi Ronaldo….my name is Sueli.
I would like to have a friend to talk in english. But I confess that I have a great difficulty in understand what the other people says. To write in a chat I feel me more confortable in doing that but when I have to listen I become nervous and many times because of this I canÂ´t understand anything.
About all this, I need to be helped. If you really wants to help a friend to talk, your opportunity arrived. Thanks very much for your help.
Waiting your news…Yours friend…Sufter.
I am from SÃ£o Paulo – Brazil –
this is the best website to learn English I have ever found! very useful for guys whose First language is not English and who have to use English everyday in work. help me a lot.
BTW, the speaker’s English is very clear and beautiful. acctaully , I could not quiet understand my customers well in dialy work because they are from diffrent conutries with diffrent accents, it is difficult for me whose first language is not English. are there materials here associating the diffrent accrents learning?
You raise an excellent point. And one that is rapidly growing in importance with the global use of English for business communication. We’ve previously thought about producing lessons with non-native speakers but didn’t pursue the idea as we felt it could distract from the language focus of the lessons (the only BEP podcasts to date that feature a non-native speaker are BEP 25 & 26). But there are other approaches we could use to introduce a wider variety of accents, and it about time we looked at this idea again.
