    I really appreciate for sending me the lessons and exercises, your lessons are so nice and effective for me as I am working in office so, I use them in my daily tasks. I am living in Afghanistan, therefore I do not have access to buy your books and some other materials, and there is just one way to me to continue your nice lessons. Thanks a gain for your nice and kindly cooperation.
