What students say about me/RCA


Below you can find some interesting feedback/messages from our students in chess forums and social media:

In a chess forum


Did I get ‘confused’ with king and queen?!


One of the students posted in a chess forum, the following message:
GM Igor Smirnov funny chessWell, I don’t exactly remember or completely understand what he was talking about. Maybe, it was in a video lesson where I, by mistake, might have misspelled it as king instead of queen (or the other way round). :) I’m sorry if that’s what it is.

Or maybe, it’s because of my ‘unique’ accent (as some people say) that the student might have misunderstood what I said.
