Never Too Old To Learn English
At age 65, Jan walked from the family's home in Tucker to her free English class in Clarkston earlier this month.
She is one of many senior refugees who steadfastly attend English classes, hoping to adopt the language of their new country and become citizens. With citizenship comes the chance to bring over children left behind years ago.In case you think she's your hero or role model, hold that thought for a second. According to the same story:
In a nearby classroom, Ghe Nguyen, 72, of Vietnam and Solomon Karmanue, 74, of Liberia study their lesson on Pilgrims and Thanksgiving.
With that kind of self-determination, they will be able to rebut the old American saying in English pretty soon.
