    Hi blogger! I found nothing interesting than visiting your blog!! It was great!! I have bought the MUET past year books. Reading, writing and speaking components at the books no problem to me. But, I have the problem regarding listening components. I have the questions and also the CD, would you mind to help me??? How can the Input from the CD can be transferred to Smartphone ????? Because I don’t have the CD player, its so pricey

      Hi Ryings.. Thanks for reaching out. Do you have an older laptop that has CD player? That’s the only way u can rip the audio out. Then you can transfer it to ur smartphone. U might want to borrow laptops or perhaps go to a nearby cyber cafe if this is a thing anymore 🙂
