Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

After The Earthquake English Was Free Around Me

To begin with, as everybody has his opinion about an individual thing or organisation, so do I. I have mine but its not about an individual thing. It's about an organisation. So we could say that we are so delighted to explain you how this organisation helped many young people learn English. With this opportunity everybody who made part of this course for the time being has level now in English. The name of the organisation is EDV. Maybe this organisation did something else, but around us they helped us to speak and write in English. For instance, if we travel in a country where English is spoken, we will not need an interpreter to Interprete for us. With what the organisation taught us we will do everything that we had to do by ourselves. In this case we would like to say a big thanks to this organisation that helped us speaking English.
