“English Helps Me.”

Literacy Council of Northern Virginia Uncategorized

While it’s hard to believe that 2018 is almost over, all of us at LCNV are excited for the new possibilities that 2019 holds for adult language and literacy education. In just the past year, LCNV served nearly 1,500 adult learners across all 400-square miles of Northern Virginia. Without your help, this would not have been possible. Below, you’ll find LCNV learner Maryam’s essay, in which she talks about how “English has changed [her] life a lot.” As you reflect on the difference you can make in the lives of learners like Maryam, consider making a donation at www.lcnv.org/donate. Thank you!

“English has changed my life a lot. I am able to communicate with my colleagues better. English helps me learn a lot of new things about this country. With all this help, I am able to create a happy life for my family. English helps me with a lot of things. I’m really glad that I am learning English!”
