Here is an excerpt from Elder J. Jarman’s recent letter home:
Our English class is going to start up on May 23, we’ve been advertising in 3 Korean newspapers here in NYC, and weve gotten a TON of calls from people for it. We’ve got ESL textbooks, and our Stake President is assigning members of the stake to be teachers. The Stake President sees it as a way to make the building a beacon to the community. I’ve been interviewing people to see how good their English is (I’m a native so it’s kinda my niche) and it’s made me realize just how miraculous it is been to learn Korean so quickly! I have a sinking feeling when I go home and keep studying it’s gonna be a whole lot harder!
