Happy Birthday, Jeff!

Today is Dr. Jeff McQuillan’s birthday! If you’ve been a longtime listener, you know how old he is (but I won’t tell).

Here at ESL Podcast, we wish him the very best for this special day. It’s hard to know what birthday present (gift) to get him–let me know if you have suggestions. In the meantime, join me in wishing Jeff a very happy birthday!

~ Lucy

  13. Mehdi Says:

    Dear Dr. Jeff McQuillan!

    Happy Birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday happy birthday…

    I just want to say thank you a world for all your good works for English learners all around the world.

    I wish you a long life, full of joy and success and a warm life with your family.

    I think there are some people who want to send you a birthday present so you should have said that (you’r birthdate) in an earlier time.

  14. Anna Says:

    Dear Jeff!
    Happy birthday to you! I ve been an eslpodcast listener for a long time already, so I know how old you are =)

    It is interesting how they say it in english about peoples age – “how old”. It seems that child begins getting older from the very first day of his life=)))
    When I am being asked how old I am, I always ask them back “Am I really OLD?”
    However, today is your day and I wish ?you a lot of fun and a nice birthday-party and a great amount of presents.
    I suppose that there are so many people who appreciate you (AND all the ESL-team of course) for your podcasts and who wish you all the best, that your Karma is probably very strong and you will live untill You are at least 100 year-old. Hope that then (at the 58 ESLPOD Anniversary) You will finally show us Lucy!=)

    Yours sincerely,
    Anna (Russia, Saint-Petersburg)

  15. Andrehao Says:

    Aha…! Glad to be one of the first to congratulate you, Dr. McQuillan. Happy Birthday!
    A present? Hmmm….. let me think. How about a free course on film direction? I know you’ve always wanted that!

  16. Phatchanee(Thailand) Says:

  20. Minjeong Says:

    hello Dr. McQuillan,
    I am in S Korea. When I was in Eugene in the USA 2006 to study English, I met your program, one of the best ESL podcasts in the world. I have been a fan since the time. I like your broad casting style, especially a little bit sarcastic expressions which help me understand English and the USA culture more deeplly. Thanks you for all your help! Happy very very birthday to you!

  21. Chalsito Says:

    Which teacher has a class with so many students and also will beloved from all of them?!

    And Jeff, you don’t look like the terminator ‘Arni’ but you are an CREATOR -The creator of a big ESL-learner community! That is much more worth – You’re not simply a teacher – for us you are the friend, buddy, joker and psychologist…anything else? :o) oh you’re a great singer too ;o)

    Well, Jeff, believe me or not – you was acting as a ‘justice of peace’ for me when I got married in San Jose in beautiful California this year in July! With the help of your podcast I was able to understand and speak all the difficult and important words for our wedding ceremony – written by Lucy – thank you so much too, Lucy!

    Happy birthday Jeff! Be happy, healthy and wealthy. May God be good, very good to you, your family, friends, co-workers …. to all you love.
    You can’t imagine how good it is for us all, your listeners, to improve our English with ESL. You are great, Lucy is great, your team is great. May it last for more than the 20 years you mentioned, may it last much more, may it last until the end and the end is far away in time, in a time we are not able to see, not yet.

    My warmest regards,
