    Hello Sir.
    Hope U will be fit & fine. I m Vaziha from India & I m really thankful to u as I hv improved so much from your lessons. I really like the way u teach & make lessons intresting. I want you to plz make a video on some health issues, explaining neck ache or stomach ache or giddiness & other kind of day to day health problems becoz these conversation with doctor or someone else require some specific words which make us conscious & hinders the fluency too. I look for to see your response.
    Thank you! 😊
    Have a nice day!
