How the idea came up
As I live in a big city, I am always on the go. I spend around 3 to 4 hours throughout the whole day driving to my one-to-one classes. As I spend so many hours commuting, I make the most of my time learning something new by listening to different podcasts.
One day, a student texted me asking for help. I guess I was feeling really goofy that day, so I recorded a voice message pretending I was hosting my own English podcast while I answered the question. When I listened to it later on, I thought it was actually fun. That was in June 2017, but it was only 4 months later that the idea actually sank in.
Why not have a podcast that will help people learn English while they are on the go? As we all have hectic lifestyles and schedules, learning English during your commute, going to school, hitting the treadmill at the gym, walking your dog, or cooking is a great way to use your time wisely and learn English. With that mind, I decided to aim at a global audience. As most of us have cell phones nowadays, why not reach people all over the world while they are in their busy routines to help them improve their English in a fun way?
