  1. you speak good, but I need to understand everybody, the problem is I don't understand american speakers is really difficult.

  2. In Master English Conversation, I teach learners how to move from understanding my slow English to understanding the fast English of native speakers. 🙂

  3. Hello Drew. I can tell your accent is English not American. Could u tell me please how did u learn to have this accent? Because u were born and grew up in USA, weren't u?

  4. Anyway thanks for sharing time from ur family , making exellent vedioes to teach us. As u have alot of techniques to explain and make it easy to understand too. Moreover I learn alot from urs such as how to make conversation with native speakers. Nowadays i do it better.

  5. I am pretty appreciated for your video. very good idea to build a team, learning different things from different people. I am non English speaker, every time speaking English, I have to spend some time to organize my word and then speak out. How could I speak a little quick and less thinking time ?
