I’m Pablo, a civil engineer who has moved to UK last January.
I usually hear (listen to) all ours (your) podcast (your podcasts), and
I think that it is a big help in order to improve my listening and
In (At) this moment, I am looking for a job as (an) engineer in
Cambridge or around (in/around Cambridge).
If you accept some ideas for podcast, I would like that you talk (I

continue hearing it (listening to them)!
Thank you for your time.
