This week, we have a story from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. The author, Nataliia Pavlovska, goes to READ Saskatoon for help in reading, writing and spelling. She was the recipient of the READ Saskatoon PGI Learner Achievement Award for 2009.
Thank you for this award. I was very happy to find Read Saskatoon, so I could have the chance to learn English.
When I began with READ, I did not understand people and I could not speak with these people. But now, I can speak and understand better.
This is an Achievement award. So I would like to share with you my most recent achievement. One week ago I was working as a cleaner and dreaming about going to school. This Monday I was started going to school to learn English. So my dreams are beginning to come true. This would not be possible without you people and my tutor.
I am very grateful to Lynne. She help me study English. The lessons are always interesting and fun. We read, speak and listen together and do many exercises. I still have much to learn, so I hope to work a long time with Lynne and Read Saskatoon.
