Hi all, I’d like to quickly throw a little post out here, and I’ll keep it short.

First off – Thanks to you all, we’re now one of the world’s largest communities for EFL. It’s a great achievement, made even more startling by the enormous amount of competition out there. Your posts, questions and answers have been read well over 35,000,000 times! This is a DIRECT result of the tireless efforts of our patient moderators, teachers and volunteers!

People from all corners of the world have had their questions answered, and in some cases their lives changed, by your careful and kind support. Much of this has been a result of our strangely friendly community; we’ve striven to keep at bay the ‘snarky’ attitude that plagues so many large communities.

A forum is only as good as its members, and you guys have proved that a little community of decent, helpful people can become a contender on the world stage!

This was just a quick little thank you; here's to the future!

You should be more active in the grammar section, my dear Emotion: big smile

P.S. I like your new avatar Emotion: rock
These forums are part of what make my days interesting! For all of your work you deserve an "Honorary Guru" status, but 'guru' doesn't exist any more. Perhaps we could make an exception in your case.
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
Thank you, Hitch, for making this community possible to begin with!
I agree with Philip: I think a special title is in order for you. [Y]

I agree with Philip: I think a special title is in order for you.

I would just add that I'd prefer something other than "the Decider".

Site Hint: Check out our list of pronunciation videos.
haha! Thank you guys.. yes, the geek thing is probably the most realistic (far too much time infront of Visual Studio - I'm starting to forget how to function beyond bits and bytes)
If only there was a way of making websites do 'tequila nights' - perhaps in the future! Emotion: wink
No problem Hitch Emotion: wink Thank YOU for giving us this wonderful forum and the possibility to do what we do. Emotion: smile
Yeah, a special title for Hitch might be cool...
Ohh, I see that I am late a bit. My apologies, I was busy with summer school. Thanks for creating this site Hitch, I feel addicted here. If it weren't for you, I wouldn't have the chance to know all these brillant people.

And thanks for everyone for their volunteer contributions.
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
