Hi Robbin,

Thank you for your constant post.
Especially the series of "頻繁に使用される英国句" are very helpful to learn British English.

I wonder if I could ask you that if there could be any chance you would recording all of the example phrases and burn CD, and I would buy the CD.

I have recently been listening to BBC learning English(RP).
However I still need to work on my listening to ordinary British people talking.
I would like to learn and listen to many useful phrases.

I am sorry for my impudence.

Thank you.

Fondest regards,
Ryoko

Dear Robin,

Thank you for kind reply!
I really appreciate it!
I'll put my thinking cap on too...

There must be the good way, I believe.

Podcast, YouTube, a Mail Magazine...

I think "charged podcast" seems good.

Hmm.. another....
I would say that:
1) You would record the phrases.
2) You would uploads the mp3 files on the somewhere(ex. your blog)
3) You would put user authentication on the page.
4) Only paying member can see the page and download.
