The Time I Overcame a Difficult Time
I remember the time I overcame a difficult time adapting to the weather and language. In order to adapt I wore jackets every day and I got my daughter to help me practice.
I remember the time I was new to Canada and my older daughter wanted to go back to our country.
I remember when I had trouble learning. I would get frustrated when I didn’t get what a word meant so I took it all word by word.
I remember when I lost my job and needed to find a new one. My credit card was in overdraft. I felt sad. I started looking for a new job.
I remember when I didn’t understand a language or culture. I felt bad but motivated to learn.
I remember when I failed the listening and speaking LINC tests.
