What learners have said about us…

“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
