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

    Happy birthday Jeff!
    I’m pretty sure that a great birthday present for Jeff is to become an ESL podcast member.
    Supplementary material for members has resulted very useful to improve my English level so at the same time it is a great present for all persons becoming ESL members.

    Happy Birthday Jeff and all the best from Switzerland.
    I go along with all listeners and writers here on these blog – It doesn’t need more words, so I also just want to say ‘Thank you’!
    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!

    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,
