Learning English helps build confidence and small business

Photograph of LakeLake immigrated to Alberta from Thailand.  She managed to find employment with a business that specialized in tailoring clothes.  Throughout her career though, she ran into challenges speaking English with her coworkers and supervisors.

In 2010 Lake attended the Workplace English program with the Council for Lifelong Learning.  Through this program Lake has gained confidence in speaking English and now enjoys discussions with her friends, clientele and neighbours in the community.

With the help of this program, Lake is now a successful entrepreneur with her own tailoring business out of her home.

Lake states “I’m so thankful for this program.  It’s helped me improve my English skills.”
