This weeks blog entry is written by two of our students in the Yangon Center, who wished to write about their experience this year at The Esther Project; we have left their comments unedited.
I am Pung Pung. I am in Grade 6. I am thirteen years old. When I attended the Esther Project, I was shy and afraid to study. But I really wanted to learn English and Computer. After a few days, I made new friends and enjoyed my class very much. And I made a progress in my English. Before I came to the Esther Project, I knew only a few English words. Now, I know new vocabularies between 100 and 150. And I feel I am also better in English speaking. I like to learn computer and I think it will be very helpful for me one day. My vision is to become a doctor. I want to help patients and want them to be healthy.
My name is Sui Sui. I am 17 years old. I am in grade 10. I think the Esther Project is very helpful for me since last year project. I learnt many new things regarding my English and Computer skills. I am shy to speak English very much. But now, I can speak English better than last year. And I also believe the Esther Project is helpful for me to do better in grade 10. Thats why I chose to study this year here whereas my friend learnt in tuitions. Understanding English is very important in grade 10. One day, I want to become a fashion designer. I want it for my professional career.
