It’s so hard to believe! The Engliada Pilot ends tomorrow evening. Participants commented today on the positive changes & improvements they see in themselves as well as others since the inception of the program. Some, who were too afraid to speak a mere week ago, were ecstatic with their increased level of ability to understand, read & speak English.
Kara Aharon, a local educator & musician, was kind enough to bring her musical talent, laughter & songs to our Engliada group. After studying the words to several pieces, we were armed & ready to ‘break out into song!
You’ve Got a Friend was their favourite ; a song filled with a number of meaningful messages. The interesting thing we noticed was how much the wording mirrored how close-knit we had become.
We know that we will be there for each other…. even though there may be thousands of miles separating us…we can reach out to each other, thanks to the wonders of modern technology!
