It is very rewarding to know that the work of the volunteers who help people to learn English is appreciated. It’s truly rewarding to get feedback from our students. Here’s what some of our students have said.
What students say about the program
“I am very grateful to Literacy Network. Once I learnt to read timetables I was able to get on trains and buses and travel across Sydney. I needed help to fill out forms and my tutor also helped me to find an optician for an eye test”. W
“My tutor is helping me to work through the Road users handbook so I can get my driver’s licence. I have a lot of trouble reading because I left school early and I do not have a lot of confidence. We work through the questions and I make a note of key words I need to recognise. He revises each lesson with me when we meet”. S
“I enjoy reading the articles my tutor brings. She helps me to understand new words and to pronounce them. I like working through the exercises based on the article, in particular, completing sentences and finding synonyms”. A
“We are going to watch the same program on television and then discuss it when we meet. I enjoy documentaries and so does my tutor”. M
