I have been in the Literacy Program for 8 years. I feel very happy with all I learned and because of that my life is becoming easier.
When I started in the program I hardly spoke English. I did understand, but I was afraid to speak. Today I can have a conversation with an English speaker and I feel comfortable speaking. The writing is my problem, but my tutor is trying her best to teach me. I’m sure I will be improving. It will take me a little longer, but I will get it.
When I started to learn English, one of my personal goals was one day to become my own boss, and today I have achieved my goal. I have my own business. Some of my customers are English speaking people.
My family life has improved so much. Today I do not depend on my kids or any one to do something that involves English. I can do it. I feel proud of myself.
I want to thank all the people who make this program possible because this program changed my life and other people’s lives, too. I want to especially thank my tutor, Mrs. Marilyn. She is the best. She is very patient. I love how she teaches us.
