We Need to Learn English
Hello, my name is Gabriel Ramirez. I’m from Chihuahua, the biggest state of Mexico. It is located south of Texas, the biggest state of the United States of America. I am currently living in Cleburne, TX.
For me studying English is completely necessary for many reasons. One of them is we are here in this great country, so we need to speak English with everybody: with our neighbors, with our boss, with all the people around us. So that means, we need to learn English.
When I arrived in the United States and started to work I felt desperate because I like to speak with everybody, and I couldn’t speak with my coworkers or even with my boss. I had a coworker who translated for me, but he did not tell them exactly what I wanted to say.
Two weeks after I arrived, one friend invited me to go to school. I went to Kiesnick Learning Center for about 12 or 13 months, but they closed because most people didn’t go often or stopped going. After some years, I learned about this school named CISD Adult Learning in Cleburne, Texas. I started attending ESL classes, and wish to start the GED classes when I’m ready. I hope will be soon.
If one day you think or feel like giving up learning ESL or GED for some reason, like somebody laughed at you because you are too old to study, always think about you and your family not the people who have a bad attitude.
Thanks for taking your time to read this article.
