    Wow…Here is the eight hundredth episode.


  2. Myo ko ko says:

    Yes, Jeff and Lucy,
    YaoYu Tsai is right.
    You all have just put an 800th eminent milestone in English teaching journey.
    I’m 100% sure that you all will get satisfied if you look back the way you’ve just passed on.
    With a lot of work done, with the perk of being friends with the listeners from all over the globe.

    Jeff and Lucy
    You never know, you all are my personal heroes when it comes to talking about how I get a hang of this language, English.
    These names, Jeff, Lucy, and Warren always come to my mind whenever I happen to deal with this English. I’m not exaggerating! I’m just saying what I feel.

    Unfortunately, I’m not able to show up and drop many lines here on this lovely Blog every now and then for some reasons. 🙁
    But you all might have noticed that I always try, whenever chances arise, to round up some praising sentences (even if my English isn’t good enough to do so!) to carol (sing) my teachers’ praises.

    Well, Jeff and Lucy,
    You know, last past two and a half months or so, I was paying a visit to my native town – a place where there are only two Internet Cafes,
    where downloading ESL podcasts is impossible owing to slow Internet connection. Therefore, I’m a little behind you. I mean I need to catch up with your materials.
    Since I just got back to Yangon recently , now I’m resuming my English learning process, listening to your great pods, of course 😉
    At the same time, I’m cutting down some writing so that I can be able to zero in on listening to your pieces in order for catching up and keeping up with yours.

    Jeff and Lucy,
    If I may, let me conclude this note by dropping a poem that I love so much here in honor of your great work of getting over 800 episodes (without EC) done.
    Read the poem’s lines and feel the moments that are disappearing so swiftly.

    —– The Hug is the Perfect Drug ——

    No moving parts, no batteries.
    No monthly payments and no fees;
    Inflation proof, non-taxable,
    In fact, it’s quite relaxable;

    It can’t be stolen, won’t pollute,
    One size fits all, do not dilute.
    It uses little energy,
    But yields results enormously.

    Relieves your tension and your stress,
    Invigorate your happiness;
    Combats depression, makes you beam,
    And elevates your self esteem!

    Your circulation it corrects
    Without unpleasant side effects
    It is, I think, the perfect drug:
    May I prescribe, my friend… the hug!

    And, of course, fully returnable!

    Thanks for Everything,

    Myo ko ko

  3. Betty says:

    Thanks, Myo Ko Ko, you are brilliant!

    Although the poem is for our teachers, we as your co-learners can also read and learn from your poem.

    Well Done.

    Look forward to seeing you again soon.

    Betty 🙂
