    I have been pronouncing these wrong the whole time I’ve been reading the blog. (Have finally gone in search of & downloaded the grammar PDF!)

    Maybe I should have clicked on an mp3 link or two 🙂

    Glad to see the recordings be at least of some use 🙂

    The PDF might be a bit daunting… but seriously I wouldn’t really know how to present my work otherwise in a (more or less) professional manner! I’m thinking of posting some further grammar bits and pieces in the future as blog posts if anything interesting pops up.
