Lindsay McMahon
"The English Adventurer"

“Hi Lindsay and Michelle I found AEE Podcast just a few weeks ago and I’m already a huge fan. My favorite episodes are ones on nuances and expressions. I have been living in Canada for one year. I have an idea for an episode. I’d be glad if you guys had an episode on adverbs which indicate frequency such as “often,”  “sometimes,” “once in a while” and “from time to time.” I’d like to know how common and how casual or formal they are. Thanks!
