“There Are Many Opportunities”

February 7, 2018 at 9:40 AM | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

LCNV’s spring classes are off to a great start, with many new and returning learners joining us to improve their English. Every learner has their own story of why they came to the United States and why they are studying English. Each story is unique and rich in its own way. Maria’s 2014 essay alludes to some of the difficulties new, non-English speaking immigrants face in the United States. However, Maria’s story also points to the possibilities that arise through studying English. All of us at LCNV are proud to become a part of these learners’ stories. You too can become a part of their story when you donate or volunteer with LCNV!

“I am from Mexico. In my country, I worked at my brother’s store and helped at the cash register. I really enjoyed going to the church and also going to the parties. I used go to the town to buy clothes and everything else I needed. My experience in America is difficult because my family lives in another country and I speak very little English. It is very different around here.

But now I have friends in this country and America is a beautiful country. I think there are many opportunities to progress here. I can drive a car and I can study English.”
