  1. Hi Drew, I'd like to thank you very much for your lessons and for helping us progress in English language, I really like your method and enjoy every time I spend watching one of your videos, I take this opportunity to ask you: why when I listen to english people speaking I'm able to understand much of their discussion, but when it comes to speak I always struggle to find the right words, in other terms words don't come automatically from my brain to my mouth? this issue really upset me, I want to finally enjoy speaking english fluently, could you please advice me!! many thanks Drew.

  2. hi..
    i like all ur podcast..they are very useful, infomative and creative.
    i alway get confuse about the proper use of "would have +pp". could u make it explain in ur next podcast…i'll be greatful to u for this kindness..
    regards!

  3. Hi Drew, another great lesson from you! And again, can't say thank you enough. 😉
    I just happened to notice a tiny "mistake" in your description, which is trivial, however, it does bother me a little bit: it's the German translation of "how to speak fluent English", or the sixth line from the very bottom. It sounds unnatural to me not because of the words themselves but the order of them. I think it should be like this: "Wie Sie fließend Englisch sprechen". Although I'm quite sure about my judgement, you may need to resort to a German native speaker since I'm not. Greetings.

  5. بجد لعنة الله عليه دنيا واخره لو انته مجنون نوديك مستشفى مجانين واحد حتى ما تستاهل يتف في وشك خلي كلامك التافه في عقلك التافه والفاضي  انته اصلا حرام يكون معاك عقل لانك حيوان وتفكيرك بهييييييمي (حبيبي محمد وليس لنا نبي سواه ))وبيجيلك يوم تتمنى تقبل قدميه الشريفتين استغفر الله العظيم واتوب اليه اللهم الا تؤاخذنا بما فعل السفهاء منا الله اعلم من فين جابوك من اي حديقه حيوانات    

  6. Hi Drew, Iam english teacher down here in Brasil and I do have a few students in private classes. But, as a second language, first is portuguese, I am aware that Iam not so smart on english knowledgement althought I would like to develop kind business like you do.
