“Learning English has enabled me to be more confident. I can go anywhere and not worry about what I am going to say or if I will be able to understand what I will be told. Learning English has also enabled me to enrol at college for different courses. I can read my letters or bills without any difficulty. I can also read new papers and books.” – Annet
“Kerstin was a big help for me, she helped me with letters that came to my house. I have a disabled son and have to attend many hospital appointments, I learnt English to use in the hospital with my son and also at the shops. I now only need an interpreter at the hospital for big decisions about Aman, like an operation, for normal things I don’t need an interpreter.” – Negesat
“I can talk a little bit of English, I can go in the shops. Now I know how to take the bus. I know how to go to see the doctors.” – Blerta
