      With respect to Hosham and Somesh, have you listened to the previous episodes leading up to this one? It’s not that difficult if you have. But very difficult if you have just come across this podcast as your introduction to radiolingua. Hang in there, it will become easier. I personally am a slow learner, but with repeatedly listening and reading it slowly filters in.
      Good luck and don’t give up.
