Haha! Perhaps in the terms of today's American liberals, I "identify" as Russian) my friends and family say this frequently!

Wow, you're really on a roll with languages! Until now, I've mostly seen you around only on the Spanish forums. When did you start learning Russian?

    Ура! Спасибо русской команде большое за великий курс!

    (Hopefully I didn't butcher that sentence like I have with many other sentences, haha. But I'm still very thankful for the Russian team. Huge congrats!)

    Well, it is mostly fine. We just do not use великий in the meaning of "very good" (it is used for something influential and prominent, like an important mathematician of the past or a playwright who shaped the theatre of his time).

    For example when you say "Великий и могучий" it is always understood what is meant
