So today I’m not going to talk about any specific idioms and expressions. Today I’m going to do more of an update on blog-related news.

So I wanted to start by saying that our recent feed problem is over. If you’re listening to this episode on your mobile you probably know that already… If you have no idea what I’m talking about, well… The feed for this podcast used to be at Feedburner, which is an independent service that is supposed to really help podcast producers by preparing their feed for iTunes.

However Feedburner has been less than reliable for quite a while and last month it was my turn to experience that. My feed simply stopped updating, which meant that feed subscribers didn’t get podcast updates for some time.

It took me a while to find someone to help me ditch Feedburner and fix my podcast feed so that it would work again – but it’s done now, so all’s well.

The other news I have is that I’ve been expanding the basic English section of Inglês Online. Just go to the site and hover your mouse over “Inglês Básico” on the top green menu and you’ll see the options. I mean, if you’re listening to this podcast you’re probably way beyond the basics, but if you know of anyone who’s in need of some basic learning, send them our way!

For now, all I’m doing in the Inglês Básico section is written articles and activities. I have been updating the basic English tips regularly and also creating new activities and I intend to keep doing that for a while. So check it out and pass it on to your friends.

Now, I hope you’ve been enjoying the podcasts and if this is your first time listening, welcome! I recommend you read “Como Falar Inglês“, which is a series of tips I wrote in 2009 explaining the importance of Listening and the exact steps you should follow in order to get the most out of your listening activities.

And the last thing I would like to address here is… probably the question I get the most from anyone that gets in touch with me, readers, students, everyone: are you going to release an intermediate course? Will there be a sequel to your basic course?

And while I can’t give you any details right now, all I’m gonna say is, yes. There is going to be a sequel, I am going to teach intermediate English and it’s not going to take that long – so sit tight, stick around, keep following me on the blog, on Facebook, on Twitter and you’ll be the first to know about it when it’s time.

Everyone, that’s it for today and next week we’re back with our regular programming of idioms, expressions and general English teaching. See you there!
