Mai’s Story

Literacy Council of Northern Virginia Uncategorized

The holiday season is in full swing, which means busy stores and crowded public places. For beginning-level English language learners without a mastery of English, an inability to speak or read fluently can make communication even harder during an already stressful time of year. Luckily, LCNV provides classes for English language learners to help improve their English skills. Read Mai’s story below.

If you would like to give the gift of literacy this holiday season, please consider supporting LCNV at lcnv.org/donate. Thank you.

“I am going to English class to [learn to] speak fluently. My English is not very good so I am afraid to talk [in case] someone will not understand [me].
I can now speak better English, and [want to] thank my teachers Corrie, Sue, and Oscar. I learned a lot in class.”
