I wanna thank you guys💕
I began my way from watching your YouTube channel, for me it was an eye-opener. I’m used to watching at least 2 episodes every week. I write all new phrases and words down and learn them, trying use in a conversation in my head. Really helps! Now I listen to your podcasts every time I’m wandering in the city, cleaning my apartment up and whatnot. I’ve improved my English level from Intermediate to Upper-Intermediate because of you, guys! Now I’m on my way to the Advanced level. I’m not gonna quit, only keep up the good work and use these useful sources you provide. Thank you a lot, you’re the best🔥

Hi guys! I would like to thank you for your hard work. I’ve been listening to your podcasts approximately 3 months now and my listening skills really improved a lot! I can understand better tv series, songs and native speech, all because of you guys. While listening to your podcasts or watching your YouTube Chanel I feel like I’m falling head over heels in English, you gave me power to continue my English language journey. By the way, I’m reading “The power of habit” now and it’s such an incredible book, thanks Ethan for recommending. Oh-yeah!
With love, Alice from Russia
