Simon, I was hoping you would have a list in order of the easiest to most difficult, of major languages in use. I suppose that’s too subjective an answer to give with any certainty, although I have seen some sites that attempted to do that.
Here is one site that attempts to answer the question:
I can’t find any link to subscribe to this podcast here on its own website! No iTunes, Spotify, Stitcher, or even just plain old RSS links appear anywhere I can see.
Obviously one can look it up, but it’s very odd not to provide links to make subscribing as easy as possible. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever seen another podcast website without them.
Derrick – I will add those links.
