I would like to get a higher education from college and to have a good career. My family has helped me a lot by motivating me. My dad has helped me with math. My biggest problem though has been language. English is not my first language, so I spent more time translating new words than studying.
I have many goals after I take my GED. I will go to college and find a high paying job.
I’m from Yemen and I speak Arabic. Everything here is very different to me: the people, the language, and the religion. I’ve had to translate almost every word I see to my own language, Arabic. I took classes, and this nice website, passged.com, has helped me a lot. I would like to thank everybody at this website. The teacher, Mr. Williams, and the friendly students in the courses. Thank you.
Living in a culture that is vastly different from your own can be hard! It’s even more difficult when you need to educate yourself in a language you don’t understand. Translating each word as you go is hard and cumbersome, but you’re doing it! Take pride in your accomplishments! We know you’ll be attending college soon. Good luck, and thank you for letting us know how you’re doing!
