What do you learn in school?

When asked in class today, here were some of the learners' responses:

• Reading, writing and speaking English
• Things about other countries from people in my class
• American culture
• How to look for and work at a job in Minnesota
• Computer skills
• Words to talk to my kid’s teacher
• Pronunciation
• Food safety
• English conversation skills that help me to have more opportunities

Clearly the skills they are aquiring go far beyond the classroom. It was a good reminder of why I volunteer and the impact adult basic education has on the lives of the learners.
