"The employee morale has been enriched by this program. I see more smiling.
And the [nursing home] residents love it!"
Patrick, Bloomingdale, IL
"I am studying English and am improving . . . I hope that we continue having
classes . . . because we need it badly. If we have the opportunity to study more,
we are ready to study hard because the English classes are very important for us."
Arturo, Schaumburg, IL
"It has been wonderful to see the students raise their heads in the elevator and
initiate conversation. They never did that before . . . "
Mary, Streamwood, IL
"I Speak English has been very helpful to me. The teacher comes twice a week
and we learn how to have better conversations with the [nursing home]
residents and co-workers. I work in the kitchen and I also learn how to
pronounce and spell the different types of food. It . . . helps me do a better
job. I would like to thank I Speak English for helping us and giving
us the opportunity to grow." Omar, Wheeling, IL
"The parents I have talked to so far love it and are happy they are able to learn
some English. We found all of them so personable and easy to talk with,
the people sold us themselves. Whenever we get feedback from parents
about something they'd like, we pass it on, and there has been a real spirit
of cooperation here."
