Walk Score ™

I finally finished the Walk Score™ section of the Real English site. There are 8 main videos and 7 lessons (90 exercises) for ESL students. The videos will probably be of interest to the general public as well.

What is Walk Score? It's a website for Americans who want to avoid driving as much as they do, and have a walking lifestyle. Suppose you are going to move and you want to find walkable neighborhoods. This is your starting point.

Walking is obviously better for your health and the health of the planet.

Mike Mathieu, founder and CEO of Front Seat, is the creator of Walk Score. He speaks naturally but clearly, providing our "voice", explaining the site in some detail. We also interviewed people on the street to get opinions concerning his creation, and the whole idea of leaving the car at home as much as possible.

One day later: the first blogger to comment on the WalkScore / RealEnglish combo.
