    Hi, This is Hristo. I am from Bulgaria. I understood about 60-70%. Obviosly you are right A.J. When I listen to you I can understand every single word what you say.

  • ouahid

    i i understood only 60 percent from that conversation that about earthquake , but i’m still find many difficulties when i hear a lot of conversations especially in movies compared with my teacher Aj hug , because i almost understand 90 percent from his videos because he has a clear voice or i don’t know maybe he intend to make it easy for us to understand , but let me tell you that you’re my great teacher , despite i’m poor person and i don’t have enough money and time because i study at the university and i work too at the same time ,but i’m thankful to you my teacher that you sent me all those useful videos at email ,and forgive me because i don’t have master card to be one of your students i will try to make a master card to buy your book and the audio of it as well , i hope to meet you someday there in the us or talking to you on the phone until i hug you tightly because i loved your methods . love and respect to you .

  • tanzy

    Hello sir,
    Thank you so much for updating in the different different style. Your audio lesson are so helpful. It really initiates me.
    In this earthquake conversation audio I understand above 80% except the meaning of 4 words. But I got the meaning of overall sentence. Even though I understand well and I practice pretty good but I can’t speak fluently what’s the solution for that. How can I improve fast to catch up like native speakers.
    Thanks so much

  • muru


  • wafa

    Hi Aj, I understood 100% of the audio but the problem is that I spent big effort and used high level of attention and concentration to catch every word before it flew outside the window,the other problem is that I can’t speak fluently and need time to translate what I want to say,the third is that I don’t have time for practicing listening and speaking. THANK YOU, I know your way is a revolution in teaching English, AND AT THE END IT WILL WORK.

    • Ibrahim Towair

      Hello A . J how are you It is nice to follow you > I always advise my students to listen to youe Vedios more and mor in order to concentrate on your accent of speaking .

      Thank you again for the effort you provide .

    Teacher I’ve got serious difficulties to understand “casual English” from coworkers. At times when I hear them individually I got it a half of they talking, but when they talking between them I don’t got it, I remain mute and frustrated. I know that I need improve my “casual English” like I m making effort to improve “standard English”, but I feel is impossible to be successful, because my age (50 years old) no allow me to achieve it.
