Tomorrow is the last class at the Provo Library; I can´t believe how the time has passed, and I feel that I´m closing stages. The classes at the ELC had finished some weeks ago, the General Conference is over and the classes at the Library are going to finish tomorrow. So these things show me that is time to go back to Chile, and that makes me feel happy but sad at the same time.
I remember my first time at the Library, I was so excited to be part of the Read Project and after passing some tests the people in charge of the program began looking for someone, who would be my tutor. I never imagine how important it would be this person during my time in the U.S.
One day Sue, the director of Read Project, sent me an email, telling me that she had found a perfect tutor for me, and I had to go to meet her the next Monday.
I went that day, and I met Linda, my tutor. My first impression was she must love teaching, because she uses her leisure time helping other people.
We talk about what I wanted to learn, and then we decided to read a book. The first book was “The Giver, then we continue with “A long walk to water”, “Holes”, and finally “Three cups of tea”.
At the same time she began to help me to prepare the Toefl, so every session, we reviewed the exercises, we read the book together, and we talked about our impressions of the book; of course we also talked a lot about our experiences and daily activities, and when the class ended, she always gave me a ride till the ELC; she began to be a friend to me.
The time began to pass by. The books were finished, the exercises too, and now the classes are almost over.
I will never forget this nice person, Linda, who was a big bless for me, every class I could learn a lot, and also enjoyed the time with her.
Linda thanks for your time, disposition, and patience, thank you for your love!
