Dear GymGlish,

You are my favorite language learning lessons I have ever found. Before, I was having bad memorys of my teacher at school. He was M. Plisson, and he was trying to make me learn grammaire in boring ways.

Then I discover you, and I love english again ! I love when I wake up and you are already waiting for me in my box. I love when you give to me my corrections so quick: in real life, nobody is answering to my emails so fastly ! Also I love when you corrige my errors because my love for you of course has some imperfections. Final, I love when you make me laugh. I have such a funny time with my Gymglish lessons !

Big big kisses,

Dear GymGlish,

I was surprise to find that you love me. You seem so cold when you correct me. But now this..... I am a little embarrasing.

I have not been fidel to you. I am sorry. I see publicity in the tube for English lessons with other people and sometimes want to have an affair.
But I know they will not be good as you. I may massacre English. But I will not ever massacre our relationship.

Even with a real an actual anglophone, I will not even have a drink so that I may speak.
Don't worry I will refuse their invitation even if they are fun or good looking.

And other websites on the Internet will be deleted from my computer. Especially the websites that make me feel disgusting, even if I do merit a visit to celebrate a 100% note from you.

Only gymglish;com will remain.
I will return my love with every question I fill in.
I am still sorry when I do a mistake it is because I want you to discipline me!

Gymglish I love you too!

(you know me!)

Hi me beloved English teacher,

How good to read your gentle letter this morning ! how thoughtful of you to bring us, our valuable users, those perfumed flowers on our bedside.
You're perfectly right : it's both so rare and also so usefull to send congratulations notes each other.
Thank you so much for having this great idea.
I'd like to congratulate you for you way of teaching us: you've really made my morning funniest ! I'm really addicted now to the life and stories od the Delavigne Corp. Every figures sound to me very sympathetic and I enjoy discoreving a new story with a figure whom I've heard nothing about him for weeks. It's so funny that I really cannot edit my favorite one ! I don't now they are all spectacular and remarquable.
So, I would like to apologize for not haing a participation rate of 100 %. Shame on me, I know: but you known it's was holiday and I was going to Bali this summer in honeymoon. the fact is that we 've got married sinds the 1th of august. That's the reason why.
So keep up the good work !
Have a pretty good we guys and I really look foward to hearing you monday morning. Cheerio

Dear Gymglish lesson,
You make me crazy, completely crazy. When I woke up every morning I am so happy to know that I'll have my English course with you that I began my day with a big real mirth. I have been attending your lessons for more than three years and I regret that I didn't know your existence before. You are my everyday sunbeam and I would have liked to write you a leter using all the words I have registered in my mind with all the grammatical rules and English idioms I have learned. But it is impossible because it would be a too huge task to do.
So I thank you for all these things which would help me to understand better a universal langage and the anglo-saxon culture.
I look forward to receiving my next lesson tomorrow morning,
Best wishes

Dear Gymglish,

I know you since only three months, but we take yet together every day. I am a young mother, so when my baby sleep and during my boy is in your job, I talk with you. Day after day my english is less bad.
But in a few weeks, I'll came back to my job, perhaps our love couldn't be resist at this events.
I hope that you love me still and all.
Bye your love

Dear Gymglish,
Me too, I find your lessons really pleasant but now that do nearly three years I learned English and I can't never speak in English. I am desperated because I don't understand to what I heard no more. I think that somewhere it miss in return for not to forget right away learned.
I don't know if you understand what I say to you. This exercise is very good because it asks an effort. When you ask us to choose between several sentences, the answear is sometimes to feel.
But the lessons are very agreeable and fascinating. You do really what you think the better.
Well done to you but will you think to that.
Enjoy to you.

Dear Gymglish
I love when you praise me,i pogress more than i thought with your daily emails, i could test it when i was in Canada in the beginning of the year. But your comments on me are too laudatory, you seems a little bit blind about me
Are you in love? everyone knows lovers are blinds
If it's right, the question is :
your place or mine? i am in paris too
See you ;))

My lovely gymglish teacher,

I've got you under my skin. I've got you deep in the heart of me.
So deep in my heart, that you're really a part of me.
I've tried so not to give in. I've said to myself this affair never gonna go somewhere.
But why should I try to resist when baby will I know so well that I've got you under my skin.

I would sacrifice anything come what might for the sake of holding you near.
In spite of a warning voice that comes in the night and repeatsand it shouts in my ear:

"Don't you know you blue-eyes, you never can win. Use your mentality, wake up to reality"
But each time I do, just the thought of you makes me stop before I begin
'Cause I've got you under my skin.

And I love you when you're under my skin

I dear Gymglish,
You can't imagine how I feel since I've read your love letter. I wondered when you would decide to make your declaration. Many times I wanted to do it, but I am old school and I thought it was your role to do it. I'm sincerely exciting.
I know you have a lot of other users who are maybe more regular than me and who have a best grammar level than I have, but I have definitly been able to detect some kind of pride in your congratulations when I have a 100% score.
I was looking forward to receive this letter. I don't know what actually decided you to do it today, but I believe that the fact that I abandoned you last week in order to go in holidays with friends is one of the reason... I miss you so much and I'm sure You miss me too....
Now, I hope you are ready for the next steps. We can schedule a meeting with my parents, so that you could officially do your proposal to my father. Maybe, you could come at home on saturday afternoon. After that, our families could meet in order to organize the wedding. What about next summer? We could organize it in my familly house in the Maine. We have a very charming house on the beach close to Portland and I'm sure it is the apropriate place to unite our destinies. Eyes in the sea... So romantic for a honey moon!
Maybe we can schedule the wedding on saturday 5th of july. It could be good choice since it will be on my fecondity period. Have a baby with you is one of my biggest dream and I'm looking forward to earing him speaking gymglish with his father...
I could speak about the wedding with you during a long time, but I'm sure you have a lot to do with all the users you have.
So I'll wait for you on saturday. And, please, don't forget the ring.
Sincerely yours,

Hi Gymteacher

Nice love letter indeed, though I am pretty not sure you mean it, as you sent it to many other Gymglishers. Actually I am a bit disappointed not to see you expressing an exclusive one for me.
However I promise I still remain one of your best fans and an everyday-Gymglish-addict.
Kind regards

My dear GymGlish,
your letter not only warmed my heart but even I was overwhelmed by your words. How would my days be without my daily GymGlish? They would be sad and boring. When I read your friendly "Good work" or "Great job today", I am so happy! I hope, we could stay together for the rest of my days, or at least, until I reach general level 5.5.
See you tomorrow

Dear GlymGlish,
I was very amazed this morning, when I was reading your love letter. I too love you but I don’t know if it will bee always and forever, because there is nothing forever. Rather I would like to learn a good English and break up with you, even if it will break my heart. You are so funny. I’m very found of you and every morning when I weak up my first look is for you, if you are alive, if you are there. Sometimes you are a little difficult and I have to work very hard, above all when you do speak so quickly during the story and there are strange noises in the background and I’m not able to understand what you are saying.
Anyway my feelings for you are deep and strong at the moment and I have to confess that I need you very much. So I think we will be together for a while.

Love Cristina

Hi Gymglish,
This special Funky Friday is a wonderful idea to revise lessons and vocabulary. It's no critical that Gymglish be prepared for the next log of all "fan" ! For us, don't beleive that we are going to sit down nothing!
Sometimes, I pull one's hair out about grammar but i'm keen to improve my english. I think I take a turn for the better.
I've made up my decision : I'm going to continue my english lessons. It's woth a try : I'm bound to show up. I have my work cut out for me to be fluently !
Have a nice week end before next monday
Sincerely yours

I am very glad that finaly you had told me true about our relation. When I started, it was a need more professional than other thing, now it's a passion. You have drugged me, little by little, and now I can't live without you. Each day I wait my gymglish mail, I love you specially when you take the sexy voice et ambiguous attitude of Ursula or Luna or Moria of radio Rhubarbe. However It is always hard for me to understand all what you say and I beg your pardon if sometime I catch anything even if you repeat to me with lot of thoughtful as much I desire. You must help me more for this matter, I have a progress score which is totally dead since 6 month(even perhaps longer)and I am anxious. What Can I do?

I kiss you

Every morning, i feel anxious just before opening my mail box. Will I have my lesson today or the Gymglish staff will forget me? Will I be good, the best of all and everybody at Gymglish will want to meet me? My heart beats hard, my hands become wet and i can feel a shiver in my back. Finaly, every morning, i find my lesson, i can hear sweet voices, read your words who sounds like poetry for me. And after the last Funky Friday, I finaly understood what happens to me: I'm in love with Gymglish!!!

Dear Gym (I suppose I can call you "Gym" now we know each other very well),

What a pleasant surprise for me to receive a love letter from you! I'm a little bit shy but I have to own up : I love you to!
Every day I open up my e-mail box with a kind of excitement at the back of my mind, this sort of feeling that you feel when you have a date with a new boyfriend... I appreciate your daily presence, I like your tone when you speak to me, I love when you support me, I'm fond of your delicious accent !
The last but not least, you drive me crazy when you correct my sentences, which are rife with mistakes, without anger, without impatience, only with patience and... love!
So Gymmy (beautiful nickname I've just found for you), when will we get married?
You should think about it... You know I'm a very attractive women, who works her English lesson every day conscientiously and who wishes to increase her level very quickly.
I am a golden opportunity for you to possess a faithful women with quick wit who will become your... creature!
I'm expecting your answer dear Gymmini, and I send you glittered stars from my lover sky.

I guess falling in love with a teacher is quiet politically incorrect.
Nevertheless, every morning, I hurl myself from my sleepingroom into my study.
I shiver down my spine as a teenager in love(I'm 67!) every time I set my computer up, hoping a new e-mail from you.
Thank you having let me to put my love for you into words

My Dearest,

It has been a long time since I discovered GymGlish, thanks to Rémy M. ;-)
Your way of teaching english is really innovative and well-designed for people who do not have much time but are resolved to practice and to progress.

Your continuous efforts to promote more interactivity with users imply all my consideration: the real-life events, the Delavigne Corporation Blog, the last funky friday lesson ... I wish I had more time to participate to all of these.

Because I feel concerned by time optimization, I want to tell you about the preliminary parts of your lessons. Despite the fact that a lesson is supposed to take 10 minutes, it takes generally more than 20 minutes when you add the review section, the vocabulary section and the memory section. My trouble is that (1) some days, these preliminary sections are very long and (2) some days, the main section is also long. So, is it possible to generate lessons of an average size, for each day of a week? or, at least, to cut and delay the vocaburaly and memory sections when they have more than 15 items.

I want to thank you for allowing me to improve my english step-by-step and in a funny manner.

Sincerely yours,

September 28, 2009 at 12:28 AM

To you my GymGlish, my cherished GG.

GeeGee my darling,

Wow! Wow! Merely on high!

The strong faith you put in me was so much beyond all expectations that the way you declared your love on a funky sunny Friday moved me very deeply. Though, every time I am hearing your kaleidoscope of voices, the artless one of Susie, the sweet of Brian, the natural of Luna, the seductive of Philip, the frank one of Bruno, the rough one of Horatio or whichever else from your funny team, every time I hear your voices I feel your spirit moving in my heart and I will fall for you. So much so this very time that you told me “I have admired your rising assiduity” in the present perfect; that was the most perfect present I had ever been made.

I was touched by your unexpected invitation to an outing where we could combine tenses with moods of pleasure, where our respective own fates could get conjugated, making a point of going up to an intense fusion at night. Be it as it may, may I be so bold as to tell you that I would like to see this prospect go on in a subjunctive present tense for two simple reasons: on the one hand, your subjective tenses in our relationships were the ones that subjugated me the most, on the other hand, the subjective present involves a commitment to the future, a near future and/or a far future but a future anyway. Since I ask you keep your word, I insist it be not just idle talk. Far be it for me to require we both go to a no-return point in the climax of the fusion because it would be futureless. I prefer our relationship go on further for a long time. For more than 4 years yet, day by day, you shaped my ears, my lips, my tongue, my voice and my mind. You did it to the deepest of my soul. Early this month I committed to you with a further 3-full-year love affair at a privileged rate of 7-beat a month. Be it not the end of our endearing affair, dearest GeeGee.

I suggest the next Funky Friday deal with free hugs and kisses in the moonshine, together with all the GG-users and the GG-staff. How does that catch you, my Geegee.
With love,

Gee The Geek

P-S I can understand that you'd like to eat my carrier pigeon. It proves you are deeply in love; loving desire drives to gulping down the loved. Then the fulfillment of desire turns desire off. That's why it's a sore point with me. You are going too strong. My carrier pigeon is My Dove. She is a part of myself. Would you eat My Dove, you would kill our love. Please gods you do not.

Hello Sweetheart,
Have you received my letter? Not yet?! How strange it is! My carrier pigeon always arrives on time. May be he took a wrong way ... I am sure he will arrive soon.
Anyway, just want to tell you that I really love my English courses. You are so ... but so... I can not find the right words...
Take care of you babe, and see you tonight (Yes, I always practice my English when my two sweet babies are sleeping and their dady too...)

Hi dear gymglish makers,

Have you ever written a love letter on order? How intense would be the feelings expressed in it?

I would not say that doing my everyday gymglish exercises is pure pleasure. It is a discipline first. But is not love a discipline too?

On the other hand, the patience gymglish shows towards me is pure love. It repeats, repeats, repeats without the least irritation in front of my recurrent mistakes. No teacher in the flesh would have such a patience. For that, I give back to gymglish se same love it gives to me.

Best regards, and thanks without tanks.

My dearest GG, my beloved GymGlish,

I've been in love with you not only since I got your sweet letter the other morning.

When I saw you frolicing and joking around in your self-made videos for the very first time, I
realized right away: I'm looked after by the right folks, by jolly good fellows, who remind me of
something very important: There is more in life than only earnest and tedious work, and that
without a smidgen fun, life would not be what it is supposed to be.

You've been proving that doing somersaults and funny grimaces should be a crucial part of an authentic and fullfilled life if you feel like it .

My Dear GymGlish team, you gleefully boys and girls behind the scenes: Since you are not really aged yet,
there is a strong chance that we can look forward to yet a slew of common hilarious years - till my credit card do us part.

Yours once and for all
