Review for Loudoun Literacy Council, Potomac Falls, VA, USA
After 4 years as a volunteer teacher with LLC, I'm finding my experience more rewarding than ever. One feature of Loudoun's rapid economic and demographic growth is the remarkable number of new immigrants from all corners of the globe. Many of my students have been here less than year, in some cases no more than a few weeks or months. LLC classes provide for many of them a useful first step in gaining the English skills necessary for their new life. I have noticed also that LLC classes serve to build a sense of confidence and community for my students, both by helping to introduce them to their new environment and by serving as a vehicle to build new friendships with their fellow students.
