“When I arrived in the U.S., I didn’t have enough English to take Academic classes and to communicate with people. ESL helped me a lot in my English. I increased my vocabulary and communication a lot, and today I’m studying Nursing at UWM and I have done well. I just have to thank ESL for all knowledge that they gave me. Thanks to all of my teachers and my conversation partner!”
