    I'm impressed with your passon for teaching. Is that right?

    Hi teachers!

    I'm writing short card for my English teacher and I wonder my writing is correct.

    Here's the writing I wrote.


    'I'm impressed with your passion for teaching. Thank you for teaching us. Love.'



    Is this grammatically correct? Is this expression proper in English culture?

    I think it's fine. Some people might say that putting "Love from ..." at the end is overly friendly but if I were a teacher, I would be quite happy to receive that. You might be able to make "I'm impressed" sound a little less formal. You could try "Your passion for teaching really shines through!" or something similar.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I note you're in Australia. "Love" is wrong, unless you are really close friends or family ... or unless you're trying to hit on him/her (making a play for him/her).

    The sentence is fine except for the "love" part. I find it to be overly familiar. You might try "with respect", "respectfully", "with appreciation", etc.
