Learn About Acronyms While Listening To English Spoken Natively Ep 368

If you're investing your valuable time learning to speak a new language, like English, you are much better off listening to English being spoken by a native English speaker. If you intend to use your new English language skills, then practicing your English language skills with the people you are eventually going to be speaking with is a much more efficient approach to learning.
