Welcome to Perfect English with Danny. This is a podcast that will not only share useful English tips and lessons with you, but it will also take you on a journey in the name of English to arts, culture, history, literature, science, education, and much more because I believe that learning a language takes more than just vocabulary and grammar. The deeper you dive in different areas related to the English language, the more confident you will be in using it in your daily conversations and writing. Happy Learning - Danny
