    Beginner English class

    The program allows me to be part of a group. I like the teacher and volunteers as they are very helpful and understanding. They help me to learn English and start with the very basic information. The volunteers and teacher explain things very clear and helps me a lot. I am able to study and learn language and SMRC people has always encouraged and helped me to become more independent and learn. The program has helped me to communicate my daily needs. Now I can at least write my name and speak with others.
