"This club has given me the courage and confidence that I needed to accomplish my American Dream."
I am grateful for being part of the Los Amigos Club. During my time at the Club, I have been promoted to a higher position. Thanks to the skills and confidence that the Club has given me.
As a result of being in the Los Amigos Club, I can communicate better with others, especially at my job with my coworkers and, of course, my boss.
I always wanted to open my own painting business and now being part of Los Amigos Club I can sharpen my English skills so I can make my dream a reality.
I wish we can spend more time together not only as a club but as a family that we are. Here, I have found a great family who is helping me to learn the language. I know I can do it and I will do it.
This is a way for me to practice English, so I can take this knowledge and use it to teach my computer classes.
I like being part of this club because it is a great way to practice and learn English.
This club has helped me to communicate better with my coworkers and my boss.
I love this club because it's the only place that I have that motivates me to only speak English because at my home not everyone practices with me.
I have been a student of the Literacy Volunteers program for almost 2 years. This program improved my life in many ways, in my job I got a better position and a raise. This is great because when I start to work there I was the "utility," that means the person who cleans the place. Now the possibility to learn and then speak English changed and grew up my expectations.
Today I want to speak about a branch of the L.V. program, the Los Amigos Club. We are a group of immigrants of different countries, looking for a better future. We understand an ESL means the first skill to get a better job or just doing daily things. I would like to say too, our club represents the chance to know different cultures and their customs, we are sharing our experiences and how everyone is finding the way to face a new life in the United States, keeping our customs and traditions.
As an organization, we have a leader. Her name is Stella Segura. In every meeting she is the host; she spend the whole time with us, and for 3 hours every Wednesday she does the club great place to learn and share. She is the good example of what the L.V. is doing with us.
