Bustamante:"A mi me gusta tener amistades pero con el ingles. El no saber ingles me limita. Me desespera."

Por eso ella viene al programa de ingles para adultos que ofrece Douglas High School.

Bustamante:"Estas clases son muy interesantes, muy entretenidas. Pierdes el miedo a hablar en ingles."

Y ademas

Bustamante:"Te da la confianza de que si no te entienden a la primera, te entederan a la segunda, a la tercera, pero tienen que entenderte."

El programa tiene estudiantes provientes de mas de treinta paises... Pero en esta clase de Dan Murphy hay un grupo que sobresale

Murphy: "Por las noches hay muchos mas Hispanos"

Pero a diferencia de Ana no todos los Latinos tienen la oportunidad de terminar sus estudios en su pais de origen.

Murphy:"Algunos solo tienen educacion primaria o secundaria."

Para ellos aprender ingles es su unica meta.

Murphy: "La motivacion mas grande es optener un mejor empleo."

Estudiante Juan Carlos Cruz dice, "Es indispensable el ingles para todo, mas que nada para el trabajo de uno y la superacion de uno mismo."

Estudiante Bartolo Santana Mora dice, "Hablar Ingles - tienes un futuro mas que digamos mas amplio."

Ana, Juan Carlos y Bartolo vienen a sus clases cuatro noches por semana, pero aprender otro idioma simplemente no es facil.

Bustamante: "Es mas facil enternderlo que hablarlo por que a la hora que tengo que emplear los verbos, el presente, el pasado, me hago un enredo. Y mientras que lo pienso al espanol lo tradusco al ingles; alli viene la confusion. Por eso es que decidi a entra a estudiar aca."

En Douglas Ana ha encontrado mucho mas que conocimiento. Ella ha ganado un grupo de amigos.

Bustamante: "Lo que mas me gusta de las clases es el grupo que se arma, todos queremos lo mismo."

Y eso es aprender ingles. El Centro Latino ubicado al norte de Columbia tambien ofrece clases de ingles. Esas clases son los domingos.
