I came to Canada on May 24, 2007. I am a single mom with three children, and my uncle met us at the airport in Edmonton. We stayed with them in La Crete until I was able to rent a place.
In September, the children started elementary school, and I started attending the ESL program at Northern Lakes College in La Crete. I completed the ESL program in January, and the BEL 1 courses will be complete in June.
I feel that I have learned many new things. I (had) never attended English classes before I came to Canada. In the Reading Horizons program, I tested (at) grade 11.3 after five weeks of (taking) the lessons, and I am very proud of myself.
Everyone has been very helpful here, including my teachers. I want to continue my education in BEL 2 in September.
