The focus of this week will be education for immigrants. Use these words to talk to your co-workers, classmates, or new friends about this topic! Having conversations in English may be scary at first, but it is a great way to practice your English and get to know people better.
1. Watch the video:
2. Read the text
The college application process where you don’t have a social security.
I kind of had an idea that I was undocumented.
So I kept looking and looking for scholarships, and then, you know…
An email, just because of my status, that thedream.us was available to me.
If it goes through, then, you know, they help pay for my entire Bachelor’s degree.
That was pretty much it- I kind of went for it and I got it.
3. Take the quiz
Don’t be shy and practice saying these words and phrases to yourself, first. If you are meeting someone for the first time, introduce yourself.
This topic is only a suggestion. If talking to someone about education is hard to do, talk about something that is important to you or about something that interests you! It’s always easier to talk about something you are passionate about! Once the conversation is flowing, you’ll be surprised how much you have in common with people from different walks of life!
