The first word I learned to read by myself was: DUCK
I was halfway through first grade and not even advanced enough to take ESL. The teachers didn’t know what to do with me, but now I’m graduating and I have no problems with English. 🙂 Work hard and you can achieve. It’s a story that I wanted to share with everyone who is struggling to learn how to read, write, or speak. It doesn’t matter if your parents aren’t fluent speakers or if you’ve it’s not the language of your native country. Simply believing enough in yourself and putting forth the work will get you far. You are more capable than you think.
