An Important Step in My Life

My name is Veronica and my primary language is Spanish. I speak English with a strong accent. For years I told myself I need to improve my English speaking and writing. This would help me to communicate better at work and outside of work.

Because English is a difficult language to learn I always made excuses to not study. One day someone mentioned the Literacy Center to me. The Literacy Center assigned me a tutor. I have been with the tutor for a year now.

I’m happy that I decided to go to the Literacy Center for help. Since I have been working with my tutor I’m able to understand reading material from work better, I’m able to write emails, and was able to pass a test from work that I had difficulty passing before. Thanks to Vivan (Veronica’s tutor) for this.
