Volunteers with the Calgary Public Library's Learning Advantage program provided learner Peter Sang with one-on-one coaching to improve his English skills and achieve his goals.
"As an adult learner with low English skills there was a huge gap between what I learned back home and the expectations here in Canada. English was the most difficult subject for me and I never thought I would pass.
After getting one-on-one coaching from Learning Advantage volunteers for almost two and a half years, my English improved significantly. I passed the English 30-1 diploma exam. I am motivated and positive about the future. I’m proud to say that I successfully completed my high school upgrading and I am now eligible to enroll in SAIT and Mount Royal.
My volunteers’ great work inspires me to help people. It is important to help my Canadian community and my people back home. I also want to be a good role model to my children, teaching them the gift of giving. I can’t wait to give back to the country that welcomed me and my family with open arms." - Peter Sang
