Letter from the program participants:

English Language School in Hawaii I just want to write you to thank you so much for my daughter Nadia Gullestrups (8 years old) 3 weeks stay with you last summer. I never took the time to write you, but since I am still daily reminded about her accomplishment in the school, I think I will take the opportunity now.

Before the school, she did not at all speak English. When we left she continued saying:

"No Japanese please!"

"Ninth floor going down" (probably the first child to have learned to speak English by an elevator)

and "Oh my God"

Than she started to talk to the dogs on the street "Bye, bye big dog" and than she continued to talk, talk and talk.

She and I travelled to the US and Polynesia for 4 months last year, and she still thinks that the 3 weeks spent with you was the best. As an nervous mother, I was concerned that my daughter was the only non-Japanese-speaking child in her class, but it turned out not to be a problem.

Half a year after her stay with you, she still goes on and on and on speaking English, and she does it quite well. I think your accomplishment is both to have taught her English but perhaps most to have motivated her to continuing her studying, after we left you. She really wanted it herself. So we started to read Dr. Seuss, and to talk. She herself started to write stories in English. In the beginning I was not to keen on that, since she is only in 2. grade and busy learning to write her own language Danish, and I thought she would mix it up. She did not.

So once again thank you so much for our 3 weeks with you!

Best wishes

Maria and Nadia
