Praise from Our Listeners

Dear Jeff and Lucy,

My name is Marina, and I have been living in Israel for the last 13 years. My native language is Russian, and my second one is Hebrew. And with my third language, that is English, I have (really had in the past) a lot of problems, in spite of my working within an American company

Although I’m able to deal with the written English, it was impossible for me to start to speak and to understand the English speech. Usually, I did not understand anything that is told in the native speech, but would not get any problem with the same thing that is written. In my work, when I had to speak, I always asked to do it for me for someone else.

It was till I found your site September 2006. Each and every day I burn your lessons on a disk and listen during my driving, 1-1.5 hours a day. Sometimes I’m listening to the same lessons many times.

Now, after 5 months, I’m able to speak English. I started to understand as well. I’m not scared and even curious to try myself in conversation. Just now I’ve tried to listen to your interview to Rob. To my great surprise, I understand mostly each your and Rob’s word. I would like to thank you for your great job.

Thank you,
Marina (in Israel, originally from Russia)
