    this story is very nice . the main thing which i like most that you include question also with which we can learn to put up questions.

    • Mark White says:


      The idea is to answer the questions and as the story progresses, there are different types of questions, so you can practise different aspects of English grammar, for example:

      all the verb tenses
      specific topics and areas of vocabulary
      any grammar point

    Hi Bassam Kedhr

    Unfortunately there is no audio clip for “Yamashita’s Gold”. Maybe we will make one in the future but right now we are both working hard to support our families.
