My name is Fanny Carreño Alonso. I am from Venezuela.
I am grateful with Literary Advance, the place where I have been studying English since I was in the 3rd level.
It has excellent teachers and all the people who works there are volunteers. We can study there with no cost, and the most important thing with a lot of love.
Everybody there take care of us, they know all the students, and they treat us with special care.
The teachers are excellent, very kind and patient .They know our necessities and treat us with love and consideration.
I learned there to read, to write, to speak. I already finished all the levels, but we need to continue improving our learning.
Now I belong to the Alumni group where we improve our English conversation, pronunciation, and understanding with our excellent teachers Kristina & Anna. We share with our teachers and with our classmates too, our experiences, and we go out some times to practice our English with other people or to learn other activities having fun.
This school is amazing! I tell to everybody the great experience that I have had in my life, studying English there.
Now I can read, speak, and write in English. I can help my grandchildren in their home works, read books, help people, watch movies, etc.
Thank you so much to all people who works in Literary Advance! Their Job is incredible and it is priceless!
God Bless all of you,
Fanny

I found Literacy Advance on Internet. I was looking for a possibility to improve my English. It was few months ago. Now I'm thinking that there is no better place for me. There is a great atmosphere, with absolutely amazing people. All tutors work as a volunteer and they are really, really engaged in this position. I improved my English. One of my friend goes to the computer class, and another goes to learn more about Microsoft Word 2010. So this is the place for learning different skills!!
