John Boy is the best English teacher whom I've ever known. He teaches me lots of interesting words and expressions. He loves Japan: Japanese people, culture, tradition, whatever related to Japan. I sometimes feel he's just like a Japanese. lol I love his sense of humor so much. His comments always make me laugh. You can learn from him lots of important things; not only Englsh but also our life. I'm so happy he is on Lang-8 and helps us a lot.

Apparently, Johnny is just a simple guy who is always joking around, with senseless, or meaningful puns or plays on words. I know, however, that we couldn't look like a fool if we were a true idiot. With a hidden, unimaginable knowledge of English, he corrects our broken English patiently and humorously. He is a typo collector. So please be careful about typo things after you make friends with him. He'll parse your sentences and look for your funny typos for a chance.

John is very sincere,humorous and intelligent person. I think he has a very high level of language ability as an editor and a writer. John gives very good quality feedbacks to his friends' entries every time. You are really lucky to meet him here!
