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.
