Writing from the heart
Foreign-bornstudents are working hard to master English as a tool that they can use to truly express themselves. This essay by Yvens, a Haitian-born, former ILC student, is a testament to the courage it takes to learn a new language and make it your own.
The Immigrant Learning Center® (ILC) of Malden, MA, is a not-for-profit organization that gives immigrants a voice in three ways. The English Language Program provides free, year-round English classes to immigrant and refugee adults to help them become successful workers, parents and community members. The Public Education Institute informs Americans about the economic and social contributions of immigrants in our society, and the Institute for Immigration Research, a joint venture with George Mason University, conducts research on immigrants' economic contributions.
