PERSONAL EXPERIENCE ESSAY 3
Manychallenging circumstances have impacted my success in high schoolsuch as language. I came here five years ago without knowledge ofEnglish and enrolled in high school in ESOL. I had to face newthings. I had a problem in reading and understanding because Englishis not my language. However, I overcame this circumstance by usingthe dictionary and finding the words and writing them down in mylanguage and their meaning in English. Also, I was never shy to askmy teachers questions. My English was not good, but I still asked,and if somebody corrected me, I always appreciated them forcorrecting me.
Anotherstruggle I had was learning the concept in my science and historyclasses. I not only had to learn the concept but I also had tounderstand words I did not know and then learn the idea. I overcomethat by using the internet or dictionary. Another struggle I had wasto pass the WIDA test and get out from ESOL, especially the listeningpart because I did not grow up hearing people speak English.Therefore, I had a hard time understanding them, especially when theytalked fast. I overcame this fear by watching TV and listening musicin English.
