    I am so thrilled I stumbled upon your site. I really found you by accident, while I was browsing on Yahoo for something else. Anyways I am here now and would just like to say thank you for a tremendous post and an all round inspiring blog. (I also enjoy the theme/design), I don’t have time to read through it all at the moment, but I have added your website to my favorites, so when I have time I will be back to read more. Please do keep up the awesome job!

    Hello and many thanks
    for the Last three years, I have been on internet and learning French, Chinese and a little Italian and never see any other website as beautiful, wonderful, useful for free, wow. I am 60 years old and fell like a kid in ice-cream parlor, I can pick and choose. the phrase all the best things in life are free certainly applies here. I did study a little German, Arabic and protégés. you have given my life a new direction since this would help me in my teaching. I love you all for the wonderful work you have done, I strongly believe learning opens mind and heart and it helps mentally and financially to have a better life.
    Once again thank you all
