Hi mi name is Lourdes, I am from Perú and I joined the adult program education because it helps me grow and improve my communication and reading, this way I could navigate better in my community and helps me understand how things work in my city. Even if I receive education in my country Is important to know how your city works and the better way is to educate yourself.
2. What has changed in your life since you started your adult education class? How has adult education helped to support your goals and plans for the future?When first arrive here my English was not bad I was able to communicate the basics Now my vocabulary is better, I am still working on fluency. The reading and learning about history in this city helped me to realize things I didn't knew before also helped me to be a community. Adult education is given me the tools to help my son to do better at school.
3. What do you think would be different about NYC or the world if everyone had the opportunity and support to continue their education?NYC gives people opportunities specially in education, it could be bsic education, learn English or if you want to continue your education. There are many courses for free and with flexible schedule so you can have time to do other things. The difference with my country for example is that you have to pay a lot if you want to study. The better education have the better understanding of your community problems you will have.
