From June 2019: Dear Janice,
Thank you very much for teaching me in English. You were encouraging me to speaking correct English. Especially “s” “has” does”. This is my weakest point.. 🙁 I really enjoyed your class with my mates. You are one of the best teacher in Auckland!! I really like your teaching style.
Please say hello to everyone from me. Hope I can come back to the class sometime soon. Regards N
