This week, we have a story written by Yanling Li, from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Yanling is being tutored to improve her English language skills, due to READ Saskatoon.

Yanling with her tutor

I am very glad to have my tutor to help me in many areas to improve my English. We have been working on the pronunciation, communication, Canadian history and politics, stories about China and Canada, national and world news.

I would like to thank READ Saskatoon for having this wonderful program to help people like me to improve our English language skills and resolve real life problems. I would also like to thank READ Saskatoon for providing me such a great tutor. She not only helps me with the English language, but I particularly benefit when I can bring her questions about work communication and pronunciation. I also enjoy when we work on the meaning of obscure words, idioms and slang. I now realize that there are so many things I need to learn and to improve, such as writing skills and improved vocabulary. I am looking forward to continuing to work with my tutor.

READ Saskatoon does a great job! My tutor does a great job! I appreciate it very much.
