AJ and Steve- Confidence (C) The new Effortless English website is coming soon.  I will post study guides on the site-- for each podcast conversation and article. 

Study guides will include side by side word lists, with simple explanations of difficult words and phrases.   There will also be a question forum on the new site- so members will be able to ask questions about slang, idioms, vocabulary, and phrases in the podcasts. 

For the first several months, while I test the site, membership will be discounted (first month free, $6/month after that).  The normal price, beginning around December, will be around $9 a month.
