Testimonial

ESL Student
"My name is Yan Zhang. I speak Chinese. My family moved to Michigan last year. I found this ESL program at Troy Continuing Education by Google search. I was very surprised by how good my teachers are here. All of them are super nice, super patient, their voice and the pronunciation are crystal clear to me. 
In my class, Mrs. Hilda always makes sure everyone gets the same amount of practice, and explains to us the words and the grammar in a very detailed manner. That makes me pick up the words very quickly and fix a lot of my mistakes from using the words incorrectly. She always brings some new ideas and reading materials about new technology into class. It makes the class more fun and I really enjoy my class. 
I also feel very lucky that I took a “work values” lesson right before I went for my job interview. The class at Career Pathway workshop helped me think through and make my decisions.
 
I like my class at TCE. Besides learning English, I also made a bunch of friends here, like Bocki, Lee, Anita etc…. They are all very smart women and hard learners. I will keep coming here as much as I can. I hope in the near future my English will get into another higher level."
