Orbits, by Andrew Blyth

Orbits

Orbits is a story of university students living their lives. In season 1, the characters are Mei, Peter, Min-jun, and Jane. They are university students living abroad. They eat a lot of left-over pizza and ramen, and enjoy coffee together. Follow their story, and discover who the villain is.

Orbits teaches listening, pronunciation skills, interaction skills, conversation strategies, and provides a model for real native conversation styles. It also discusses issues like social and cultural issues, ethics in business, gender issues, philosophy, health and nutrition, and more.
