“I like an English class with a lot of speaking because I sometimes have trouble understanding when people speak fast. When I took a class with Hot Bread Kitchen, my speaking and listening improved because I had the opportunity to speak and listen more and I learned many new words.“
—Laila N., Hot Bread Kitchen member, ESOL class participant
