If you go to the Home Page at www.kalskorner.expresdenik.cz, you will see an icon for Audio Recordings. Just click on it, and you’ll be taken to a Main Page for various audio content.

Churchill’s historic audio recordings will be available next week on Kal’s Korner Online Web site.

Sir Winston Churchill
There is nothing here that we can say about the great Sir Winston Churchill that others have not already said before. Therefore, the best way to “talk” about him, is to honor him by posting audio of his own words.

The Purpose of Audio Content
To learn English, a person needs to do more than just read it. They also need to hear it. They need to listen to it, and they need to understand it from this listening. To help achieve this objective, it is critical that a person both practice by speaking English, as well as listen to it.

This is the purpose of the audio content on the Kal’s Korner Online Web site, to give you additional exposure to real world English. Since ALL of this content is literally from history, it is automatically by its nature as “real world” as things get.:-)

More than Sir Winston
In addition to some great recordings spoken by Sir Winston Churchill, we’re going to include other great content from other figures in history.

This means audio content from U.S. Presidents John F. Kennedy, with his distinctive Bostonian accent; Franklin D. Roosevelt with his unique drawn out oratory style; speeches by Ronald Reagan, Harry S. Truman, and Martin Luther King.

More Than Just Americans
Since Kal’s Korner Online is for everyone, just like the English language itself, we hope to insure that its content always remains diverse and reflective of and to cultural sensitivities, as long as these are not at the expense of the truth.

Accordingly, audio recordings will also be posted in the Audio Archives section from other great figures: leaders, scholars, authors, poets, -- the list is endless.

Over time, YOU will also be able to post your own online content, and take advantage of what is called Podcasting nowadays.

Podcasting is yet another great way for people to communicate, and it is a phenomenon that will only grow over time. More than 100 MILLION people have Apple-made iPods now.

Back to Sir Winston
Sir Winston Churchill is one of the greatest historic figures of all time, especially during the last century.

Some of his greatest, most classic speeches are presented online now.

In addition to their vigor, their message is still as relevant today as it certainly was when he first spoke. Great words, are truly timeless.

REAL Facts About Michael Jackson     Divorse

Most people do not know this, but here are the REAL Top Secret Reasons why Lisa Presley, daughter of the one and only Elvis Presley, divorced her now-ex-husband, Michael Jackson.

Of course, why she really married him has never been “explained” either, but here at least are the real reasons she divorced The Gloved One.

1. Michael wouldn’t drink beer, watch football games, belch or fart like a “normal” man during the holiday season with relatives or during sports championships.
2. Refused her to have separate make-up kits and mirrors.
3. Michael was not willing to try anything new in bed...like her for example!
4. Couldn’t leave the Elephant Man’s bones out of bed.
5. During their six months of ”deep” marriage, Michael never bothered to charter a jet for her just so she could go get a peanut butter sandwich.
6. Ruined her favorite nose of his, the model he used to wear from September of 1994 to March of 1995.
7. Shocked and required psychiatric care from a doctor when she found out that Michael’s military uniforms were not part of any REAL government organization.
8. Kept forgetting to put the lid back on top of the mascara bottle.
