Abe’s Strange World

By Abe’s Strange World
I tell stories about strange people doing strange and crazy things. I try to use English that is not too complicated, and speak at a pace that is easy to understand. Suitable for intermediate to advanced ESL learners. English listening practice that does not feel like studying.
