It's another Sunday, you guys!
We have an all-goodness packed episode today where I am going to teach you all about the English expression "a snake oil salesman" - and more!
First off, we start off by answering a question from Jonathan from the Netherlands. He asks about how to say the letter L at the end of a word (the Dark L) and how to say 'oo' in words (the OO Vowel Sound).

Finally, don't forget to hit pause, rewind, and play because there will be a Listening Comprehension Exercise at the end of this episode.
