A Nice Letter

I make fun of myself all the time on here so once in a while I get to toot my own horn. I received this really nice email the other day from one of my former students. It made me feel pretty darn good:

Hi Ben! How are you??? I'm Dai TRang- your student in pre-intermedate class which your last class you had taught before you came back USA. I'm sorry for I haven't kept in touch with you for a long time. I'm so so so sorry. DO you remember what I wrote in my first literary composition i gave you? I wrote that my biggest dream was go to USA to study. I always think that it's just my dream and never becomes true. But you know, there was a marvellousness happended to me. i had got a schoolarship 100% to study in high schol in USA in 1 year. After that i wil get others schoolarship to study in university in USA too. I can believe that i could do it. It will be exciting. I wanted to study in USA because of the way you taught us. YOu see, in vietnam, the teachers are very serious,unfriendly and keep space with their students. Opposite them, you are so friendly,easy, understand your student,always change the menthod to teach. Your class was very fun and made me interested in studying English. So I think that, all teachers in USA are like you and study in USA will be my new trial. But I afraid of Americans cann't understand what i say and so do i,I can't understand what they say in English!!!!!!! So what do you think I should do to improve my English. I did a lot of ways and now my speaking skill is better and i can speak english more confident.

You always is my best English teacher so thank you for helping me and makes me could reach my dream!!!!!
Best wishes,
P/s: I know i have many mistakes in this mail, i'm sorry! =)) I'm looking foward to seeing you soon.
