"My knowledge of English, when I came to this country a year ago, was very basic. The first month I spent looking for a place to study English near the house. I felt as if reborn. I could not speak, did not understand what people said, and did not know how to move about. With the help of my husband, I learned how to take a bus. The first day of school I was very afraid, but teacher Stephanie is an angel with all the new students who arrive in class. With her patience, good treatment and excellent methodology, she helped me understand and love her classes. I felt very good and learned that the biggest obstacle is yourself.

When I moved to the next level with teacher Rheba, her characteristic joy and good humor always taught me that we can work and give more of ourselves to achieve our goals. Teacher Shahroh has an excellent methodology. His good humor makes the class a gentle learning environment. I am currently with teacher Ann. Her organization and techniques have made me understand a lot of the grammar that I had never understood before. She has an excellent methodology that all students can understand. My classmates have taught me about their culture, and their beliefs have opened a world I never thought I could know. I have the privilege of studying English at [San Diego Continuing Education’s West City Campus]. I started in level one, and I’m currently in level five. I can already see my progress with the help of the excellent teachers that work in this school."
