A year ago l couldn’t read or write fluently. l had very few spelling skills. Even though l am very skilled with my hands and knowledge with jobs, l couldn’t write reports, which held me back from job opportunities. I started adult learning support in January 2014. After three months, l have read four books and l had never read a book in my life before! Now I read some things every day, like newspapers. I can now do crosswords! I went from writing four lines in March of 2014 to an epic 16 pages about my Aussie experiences.
This has changed my whole life for the better, l do not feel embarrassed when having to fill in forms or write anything.
