    Thank you so much for your lessons. This is really the way to learn Mandarin. I've been a foreign student in the universities and had private tutors but have not been as satisfied with those teaching methods as your course. This is really a wonderful program and well appreciated.
    I heard about your program on the Chinese Forums.

    Thanks again,
