Happy News!

From Greg in Chicago:
Hi Ben,
I know part of the PLC, being that it is a private community is that we also share pictures and stories of our family, like how Sean recently shared pictures of his children.
Here is a picture of me and my fiancée, Rosa Marisol. We got engaged on 4/21 and will be getting married on October 6th (the only valid reason to miss CI Midwest). Rosa is originally from San Jose De Gracia, Michoacán, Mexico.

(Also Greg could we get more information about your one day training in Chicago this summer?)

  1. Thanks everyone!
    By the way, my fianceé is a big Ben Slavic fan. When we were first dating and I told her about how I teach I sent her some videos of Blaine, Ben, and Mike Coxon doing movietalk, and Martina Bex.
    She said ¨The others are good but Ben is the best!” She loves Pringles man.

      1. Yeah that pringles man video… honestly it’s as big as Krashen’s german demo lesson except it’s even better because it is in an actual classroom. Lots of mojo!

        1. That vid changed my life. I’d been following Ben like a dog with a bone for years but when I saw that Pringles vid I noticed something qualitatively different. Ben was SUPER HAPPY. I could feel the Little happy crinkles st the corners of his eyes and I had never seen him smile do much while working. And I was all like, I want a piece of that. That was two years and three months ago. Boy did I get a piece of that. By the way ben speaking of getting pieces Diego just sent me a pic of you and me eating that Derby Pie. It’s not at all diet approved but if it landed in front of me I’d shore eat another piece of that little Pie of Heaven.
