Dear Pete it's been a short time I am following you to improve my english, mostly the aussie one😉 I have a kind of writing memory, which means I have to see the new words or know the spelling and try to write it down to memorize it. i look up for your podcasts scripts but i finally couldnt reach it. unfortunately in iran there are severe sanctions,which we are not connected to the international payments ,then we cannot pay for the script of your podcasts. is there any other way ? or is there any iranian around you, who we can transfer money to hie or her account ? thanks for your positive energies and your valuable work. bests farideh shiraz iran
