I've been studying English with him for more than 2 years. He always tries to be his best. He doesn't hesitate to help me if it's for improving my English ability. Lessons with him are more than just learning expressions and memorizing vocabularies. Even though I normally speak English once a week, when I have lessons with him, I feel natural when I speak English. I've got not to get confused with situations like I should have a conversation in English. I'm so glad to get his lessons and I hope lots of people get to know him.
