My name is Mariam Shabani. I’m a student at City Gateway, here to pass my level 2 Functional Skills English. At first, I was very nervous and worried that my English would never be up to today’s upholding standards, and as a result, I wouldn’t pass my exams because of it.

Fortunately for me, I met an excellent teacher who taught me about the basics, encourages me through the tough and the hard parts, and showed me my biggest strengths. For this, I am ever so grateful to be attending her classes because she makes me improve on qualities that I need to succeed in life. Thank you so much Sharon, and I wish you well and I hope you’ll teach eager minded students onto the same bright future.
