My name is Ranya. I came from Egypt. I’m married and have three kids. I have been here in the United States since 2006. I joined the literacy Program in 2013.
First, I joined the Conversation class on Thursdays. It is so useful for me. It encourages me to speak English without being shy or afraid of making mistakes. I felt that I’m not alone. It helped me a lot. The staff in this program are wonderful and so friendly. They encourage me a lot.
Second, I started my tutoring classes with Jennifer. She is amazing person. She always answers my questions. She encourages me to talk, read and write English continuously. Every class she brings a lot of materials to study together.
Now, I feel so much better. I can go shopping and speak English with my neighbors. I also can speak with teachers and the parents in my children’s school.
Finally, I encourage everyone in my church to join this program. It is so useful and it is for free. It made a big difference in my English and my whole life.
