A wonderful success story from an adult ESL student.
The wonderful success story to the right came from a student who really did not want to be in a class doing the Good Choices Program. When she arrived she was troublesome and interrupted the class and other students. But as the class went on the materials seemed to strike a chord. Her note to Carol Loweree on completion was a heart-melter.
Happy House President, Carol Loweree has been piloting a program to boost literacy with students. You’ll here more about this program at a future date, but the program is also extremely useful for ESL students. Check out the photo of some recent graduates from a migrant workers ESL program in South Los Angeles and this wonderful success story: “I have so much confidence now to speak English were before I felt unable to! It also gives me the opportunity to help my children since I can understand and read what they are studying! THANKS YOU SO MUCH!” —Isabel S. Mother of 5 children
