One of my friends is trying to learn Persian, he suprised me when I found out he has improved greatly, so I wrote the sentence below to express my surprise, I want to know if it is correct:

Pleasure to see you have improved greatly

Is there any idimatic alternative to it?
Thanks in advance.

    Partially - you can't start the sentence with "pleasure". If you do want to use that word you could say "It gives me great pleasure to see how much you've improved"

    But I constructed it in analogy with Nice/Pleasure to meet you, and so many other examples like that.

    Thanks.

    There's a huge difference between conventional expressions such as "pleasure to meet you/pleased to meet you" and genuine expressions of emotion.

    If you want to convey your surprise/happiness at your friend's improvement, it would be much better to use cutiepie1892's phrase "It's great to see how much you've improved!"
