Listener feedback from Mamen who passed her speaking test

Listener Feedback: Sergio
My name is Sergio. It is not my first time writing to you.
I listen to your podcast everyday and I have listened some podcasts about the FCE Exam, and I would like to know which is the ‘required’ (or minimum) level to pass the exam.

I mean, I have studied English for many years, and I use it very often at my work. Perhaps, I should try to improve my vocabulary in general, but I think I can follow a normal conversation with a native speaker.

I have listened to some podcasts, as I said before, about some of your students doing a FCE speaking exam, and I would like to know if they could pass the exam.
Could you tell me a podcast number/episode in which I could listen to a person who ‘pass’ (has passed) the exam, please?

Bea and Tatania speaking test: PassFCE episode 14

Feedback from Marga Arroyas

Hola Reza and Craig,

This is my first mail to any of you and….

I could tell you how wonderful you are… I could tell you how nice it is listening to you and how much I learn when doing it… I could tell you I´ve downloaded all your podcasts…
I could tell you I listen to them as much as possible (when cooking, driving or even sleeping)… I could tell you you are the best English teachers I´ve ever had…
I could tell you how English has helped me in my life… I could, I could, but I won´t…
