Lunar New Year... Continued

As if we hadn't celebrated enough, the ESL program this year held a new year's party for its students and volunteers. Over 200 people came and participated in this fun and exciting event. We all potlucked and were amazed at the variety and amount of food!

Two former students shared their experience taking (and passing) the naturalization exam last year and encouraged other students to keep on studying. In 2006, over 100 students were successful in passing the exam. Hooray for our new citizens!

And of course, everything had to be said 4 different times - in English, Mandarin, Cantonese, and Vietnamese - to make sure even our beginning students were included and would know if they had won one of the lucky raffle prizes.

Next year promises to be even more successful. Can't wait for the party!
