Thank you for your time and effort Professor!!!!!!!!

Our Sunday night class was very enjoyable with Professor Green. Even though we only met once a week, this website was a great tool that was used throughout the semester for our course. It really felt like we had class everyday, and that I was learning something new everytime. I was able to improve my speaking abilities by viewing other speeches. Thank you very much professor, you were always there to answer my questions and give me advice. I truly had a great semester, thanks.
