An HCPL ESL Student Tells About Her Experience Learning English

Lives are changed in small and large ways every day at Harris County Public Library and libraries all over the world, Most of the time even we who work there don't see it. A student aces a chemistry test because she found a quiet place to study, a reluctant reader stumbles upon that book that fits like a second skin and begins a lifetime love of reading. A recently laid off oil worker brushes up on interview skills at a Workforce Solution program at his local branch and lands the job that turns into a career. So we were delighted recently when a student in one of HCPL's free ESL classes, Leonor Paez, wrote a lovely testimonial about her experience learning English and the many ways her volunteer tutor, Ann Sullivan, has helped her. Leonor has graciously allowed us to share her letter with you.
