A student who earned a promotion credits learning English

"Before my life was different – I didn’t have the communication with people who spoke English because I was fearful. I didn’t want to go place I didn’t know. At work, if someone wanted to talk to me, I couldn’t because I didn’t know how to have a conversation. I didn’t know how to read or write. All these things pushed me to want to learn English. Thanks to the Literacy Council, it is helping me to have a better position at work, have more opportunities in my life, and have more friends. When I go to the doctor for an appointment, I don’t need an interpreter because I understand what they say and we can talk about it. I can make appointments for my family over the phone. What has benefited me in my personal life – I have a better income. My job promoted me to kitchen manager. I want to keep learning more for my future." 

A student learns to express himself

"My experience at the Literacy Council has been really good because I found nice people that make me feel important. They took the time to explain things to me carefully, slowly and with respect. When I was in school, I could write and read some but I had problems when it was time to speak. I felt like I stood out from the rest of the class because everybody could speak better than me. That did not make me feel good. When I first came to the Literacy Council, I did not think the small group class was for me and that I wanted something else but I was wrong. The class is what I need. It is very important for me to learn English because.  I am the kind of person who likes to talk all day but feel frustrated when I can’t express what I want. My goal is to put 100% into my class because I am going to own my own company."
