Pathway to College

"I started in Beginner 1 at the YMCA Language School because I had little knowledge of the English language. I only knew how to say a few colors, objects, and greetings. After following the entire program, I completed the final level, Advanced 3, and am now ready to start my college program in Business Administration. I am very happy because these last 9 months took a lot of dedication, even studying late in the evening after my baby went to sleep, but with much patience and support from my teachers, I DID IT! I want to thank the YMCA and recommend this school to anyone who, like me, aims to learn and develop their competencies in a new language."

"Iniciei no YMCA no Beginner 1, pois eu tinha pouco conhecimento em inglês; sabia apenas algumas cores, objetos e cumprimentos. Após realização de todo o programa junto a escola, concluí o nível Avançado 3 e estou pronta pra iniciar meu college em Business Administration. Me sinto muito feliz, pois foram meses de muita dedicação e estudos de madrugada, após minha bebê dormir. Mas, com toda paciência e apoio dos professores, EU CONSEGUI! Deixo aqui registrado meu muito obrigada ao YMCA e recomendo a escola para todos que, assim como eu, tenha como objetivo aprender e se desenvolver no idioma."
