Em, 

I keep wondering about the same..what can we change in two months..?? When I realized that the families coming to the LIU for English lessons barely understand the language I couldn’t help feeling helpless. English is a second language for me and I know how much time it takes to become fluent and able to read and write. However, last week I was impressed by one of the women who had a very hard time during the first week I started working. She wouldn’t be willing to speak and she had great problems with pronunciation. This past Thursday I noticed that she was writing whenever she had to and she was actually making efforts to repeat the words and sentences with everyone else. At first I thought that she would one of the students who would not make any progress and what happened last week really really encouraged me because I just saw her trying a lot harder to learn. My point is that change does happen and I hope we’ve all taken the right direction!
