Our Adult Education program was the very first program at Guadalupe School, starting back in 1966. Since then, we have seen hundreds of students achieve their language learning goals, graduate from the program, and improve their lives. But, what exactly does it mean to our students to learn English well enough to graduate? Well, we'll let them tell you...
Learning English has been important to me because I have learned how to speak better and have better
communication. One important thing I learned was that English is very important. My advice to other
students at Guadalupe School is to stay in school and take advantage of the opportunity that Guadalupe
I have been attending Guadalupe School for these past five years with great pleasure. I thank all who
have had so much patience with me. I have learned to better understand the English language and have
learned to read and write and to communicate with my everyday community. Five years have passed,
and I have learned to be a better person. I respect each of my teachers and coordinators. Thanks to
Linda, Dani, Melanie and Kate; and thanks again Guadalupe School for helping our community to be a
better place. Keep helping others be a part of the community. God bless you.
Learning English is important to me because in this country, English is the main language. If we speak
English, we can have a better job and we are able to help our children with homework. We can also feel
more confident when we have to speak English. Learning English has been very important for me.
When I started coming to Guadalupe School I was really shy, but every tutor that taught me English
lessons gave me the confidence to keep learning and speaking English with a lot of confidence and to
believe in myself. My advice to other students is to keep trying and never give up. If you really want to
do something and you put a lot of hard work into it, you can achieve your goal. I also want to wish them
good luck and best wishes.
Learning English has been important to me because now I feel more comfortable in my personal life.
Also, it has been helpful as I find work. Now I understand American culture. One important thing I
learned was how to be available to help my daughter with her homework. I can read, write and talk
with her. My advice to other students at Guadalupe School is to tell them how studying English has
been helpful to me and can be for them, too.
