Hi Michael,
I’m your a big fan. I started to watch your video clip since Sep, 2012. At that time, I was very basic.
I studied myself everyday little by little. and I could speak English pretty well now and moved to US to live.
And I am working at recycling company as a admin for 9 months now. I am still studying English through your website. I wanted to thank you that you are providing very good quality of English website and that is helpful a lot. I hope you have good holidays. Much Thank,
Michelle

    Wow! Thanks for the nice message!
    It’s always encouraging to hear from real people about how my lectures have helped.
    What part of the US do you live in? Are you enjoying life there?

    Happy Holidays!

Hi, Michael.
My name is Young, and I’m studying English in Canada.
A few days ago, my friend told me about your video lectures.
And I started studying English with your lectures.
I think it’s really awsome!
Even though I’ve been studying English in Toronto, Canada, your lectures are really helpful for me, I think.
I’d just like to let you know that there are many students who like you and your lectures like me.
And I also wanted to say hi and thank you a lot.
I’ll keep studying with your materials.
THANKS FOR EVERYTHING AND I HOPE YOU HAVE HAPPY MARCH WHEREVER YOU ARE.

Unfortunately, I deleted my Facebook ID 🙁
But don’t worry about it, I will keep studying with your lectures and I’ll sometimes leave some messages here or wherever.
Thank you so much.
Have a nice day!

Hello, Michael

I’ve been watching your videos by chance in the States and all of them have been really paid off always. FYI, I am half Japanese and have been in here for about 7 months. I speak Korean since my dad is Korean. I’ve been trying to challenge myself to speak with native speakers practicing your useful expressions I’ve learned from you. I can’t say thank you enough for your positive influence to English learners, as I see it, I do feel surprised by your videos, especially when you talk about Korean cultural stuff. You seem to know a lot more than Korean do. Believe it or not, it is a real shame that some young Koreans have disrespected their own precious traditional cultures. Even me, I still learn Korean things since I don’t want to lose them all. Anyhow, throughout your videos, not only do I learn English from you, you also inspire me something important to me in a good way. Good luck with your teaching career in Korea.
