Gabriel expresses what gives her the drive and the motivation to learn English and make improvements. Her essay is short, but her positivity, kindness, and hopeful outlook for a better tomorrow overflow on the page. At LCNV, this kind of passion from our ELL learners motivates us every day. Enjoy Gabriel’s essay below:
“Since I started my English class, I started to understand what is happening around me. I know that I am responsible for learning this language. Very soon I can get a better job and I can express my opinions at work. I can be more sociable and can go to eat at any restaurant, and I can express my opinion to help other people. I know that my effort will be worth it because I am on the way to learning and I will soon reach my goal.”
