Happy Birthday, Jeff!


At this time each year, we at ESL Podcast, pause to say, “When is our next vacation?”

No, no, no! We stop every year on September 24th to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to our own Dr. Jeff McQuillan, a man who survived the icy (very cold) climates of Minnesota, many (many, many, many) years as a poor and lowly (insignificant) student, to become our fearless leader here at ESL Podcast.

So, let’s drink a toast together to Jeff and wish him a happy and healthy 29th birthday (again)!

To you, Jeff!

    happy birth day Jeff, and God bless you for what you are doing. I know, it is an effort to put up with us some times,particularly with me.

    A big flamboyant village ; the best description I can come up for Paris. But , it is pretty much it ,isn`t it.

    Happy birthday Dr. Jeff!!
    p.s. It took me a while (after looking through the comments) to get the joke in this announcement. When I read it I am like “what? Dr. Jeff is only 29? ” (not that I expect you to be much older but 29 is a very young age to achieve a Ph.D degree). Well, whatever your age is, wish you happy as always and best wishes to our ESLPod.

    Happy birhday to you Jeff. I wish all the happiness and joy. I listen your podcasts every day. You are doing a great job. With your help I’ve improved my english so much better. Thank you very much. Please never leave ESLPOD I beg you .

  35. Andres Says:

    Well it is never too late to say THANK YOU!!!! It hasn´t been so long ago since I dicovered ESLPod, but enough time to realize that teaching is in your blood Jeff!
    Thank you for your altruistic work, for sharing your knowledge, and for making the english a more accesible language to all Us.

    I feel that just saying thank you and wishing you a happy birthday is not enough to reward your lessons, but it´s all I can do unless you need something from Argentina in wich case I´ll help you gladly.

    Thank again!

    Andres from Buenos Aires, Argentina.
