I feel really happy about the ESL Milestone certificates. This is the first semester these certificates are approved; therefore, I am honored to be one of the first students in California receiving them. I came to the U.S. in 2015 and attended ESL 183 at Cypress College as my first educational experience in America. Back then, I would never think that my time investment in ESL classes would be recognized. I took them just simply to build a stronger foundation and move forward to higher education.

In my opinion, these certificates are amazing because they are proof of students’ hard work as well as a big motivation for ESL students.
