konan’s story (1year and 6 month in U.S)

When I first came to the U.S I was wondering if I could learn how to write and speak English. I thought that it was impossible for me. Before I went to school I started reading some English books, but reading them was hard. I got a dictionary (Spanish-English) and I started looking for words that I did not know, mostly all of them. Then I went to school and I could not understand anyone. My teacher told me “Learning a new language takes time”. I felt better. Now my goal is to learn the new language as fast as I can. Today I feel a little bit better because I can speak, understand and write English , not that good but  I can. Now my goal for my future is to finish school with good grades, go to college and become a really good doctor like my father. That will make me feel proud of myself, and also my father will be proud of me.

  1. Your English skills are amazing Konan, do keep up with having a Spanish to English dictionary near you, they are ALWAYS better in improving vocabulary! Great post!

  2. I’m very proud of you, Konan! I witnessed how you turned a blank paper into a paper full of those “impossible” English words. Now you know how much you can do, don’t you?

  3. I think that you have come a long way in a year and 6 months, your English is really good, keep up the great work

  4. That was a great piece. I’m really glad that you want to became a doctor just like your father.

    Most of our inspirations comes from our parents, and i think thats important that everybody should know.

    Keep up the good work. Before you know it you’ll be speaking three different languages!
