It’s truly rewarding to get feedback from our students.
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
“I am 27 years old. I come from Tibet. I have been living in Australia for 4 years. I started English lessons with the Literacy Network in July 2016. I meet my tutor once a week in the Literacy Network office every Tuesday. We start our lessons at 4PM and finish at 6PM. During our lessons I write, I listen to the recorded conversations from computer. We often discuss daily news. I talk about what I did during the week. We talk also about our holidays, geography, Australian nature, animals. I tell my tutor about Tibet. We discuss matters that I currently deal with, like housing, employment or legal issues. We practice new vocabulary. Sometimes we do grammar exercises. We use books from the Literacy Network office library. Sometimes I do some homework. My tutor doesn’t give me too much homework because she thinks that I also learn English at work and at TAFE. Now, I feel more confident with my English language skills. Thanks to my tutor I have learnt many useful and interesting things. All what I can say, write, understand in English it’s result of your help and time. Thank you so much”. V
