Oh English!

Such an amazing language, yet such a frustrating one too. I can say though, that I do love it! Especially when it is used and spoken as beautifully as Stephen Fry does.

Really interesting

Lots of good information about the roots and uses of words and phrases. Fascinating to listen to. And, of course, Stephen Fry is involved. What could be better?

Fry and language. its delightful

my favorites are the episodes about hello and gibberish.

Mr Fry Delight

Listening to Mr Fry is delight! Superb as usual. I start to suspect that even a washing mashine manual would be thrilling experience read by him.

Brilliant

A treasure trove of informative tidbits served up in a tastey bite sized portion.
Can't argue with the price!
