      I can agree but we must be careful, look at Jade 6:00 - chocolate IPA , not a RP, to my mind.

    2. Hi Anonymous! Jade does have her ups and downs... Take a look at this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1I-vqGntcw8. I've covered this video with my students on a how-not-to-stress part of the course. There are a few glitches over there, as you can see. But, overall, she is doing quite a good job with the rest...
