CAMBA Adult Literacy Center. The name usually tells it all. The institute for
those who need help with English, with computers, etc. In reality, it's not just
simply that - we are a place dedicated to the progress of one thing - the
dreams, the goals of all our students. Life for immigrants is far from a
cakewalk, having to adjust to a new lifestyle, and a new language. Our faculty
strives to provide our students with the means to move forward in life, to take
the necessary steps into the world, into colleges, and into budding careers.
With that said, here are some of CAMBA's very own success stories, some out
Definitely, my life has changed since I started studying English at CAMBA.
Before, I didn’t have any confidence in myself because of my poor English. But
everything changed when I heard about CAMBA from one of my friends. After
attending English classes at CAMBA, I have gained more confidence. It’s an
amazing feeling when you can express yourself; you can talk to everybody; and
you can go wherever you want. By knowing English grammar, it’s easier to be
involved in conversations with other people.
Studying English at CAMBA has changed my life in many areas. Now I am willing
to continue my education despite my age. The knowledge that CAMBA has given me
will help me to realize my dream, and to build a better tomorrow. CAMBA gave me
the opportunity to meet other people from different countries. I met a wonderful
teacher who taught us in a very nice and easy way. Because of his unique
explanations, we learned more easily.
I am very happy that now I have learned English, and also that now I have
many new friends.
It’s All About CAMBA
In the USA there are such organizations whose duties are to help people to
succeed in their lives. CAMBA is one of them. It helps immigrant students to
learn English, get prepared for getting a GED diploma, get job readiness skills,
and get adapted to tough life in America.
My name is Habib. I came from Bangladesh in 2009. CAMBA’s role is great in my
life . It helped me to pave the way in the realization of my dreams. My life
has changed since I started attending ESOL classes at CAMBA’s Adult Literacy
Center. I learned English and met nice people who became my friends. Before I
came to CAMBA I never realized that I would be able to go to College one day.
But CAMBA made my dream come true when I met my ESOL teacher Ms Anahit. She gave
me the knowledge that I needed to go to college and helped me believe in my
strengths and abilities. I became more confident and it helped me to fulfill my
dreams. I am proud of CAMBA and I recommend all my newly arrived friends to come
to CAMBA. Thanks CAMBA.

Where your dreams come true!
When you first come to the United States, particularly to Brooklyn, there is
a place or a harbor for all immigrants. This place is CAMBA, where people are
friendly, including managers and all of the staff that work there. They help you
in many ways to pursue and achieve your goals. I cannot forget one of them,
especially Ms. Anahit Zatikyan, who helped many immigrants like me not only to
learn English, but to be very strong and purposeful to achieve our goals and
never give up. I am very thankful to the management of CAMBA, as it gave us the
great opportunity to continue our studies in Brooklyn College.
CAMBA where you can, is the first school that helped me to feel
comfortable in America. My life has changed since I started attending ESOL
classes at CAMBA'S Adult Literacy Center.
At CAMBA, any immigrant like me can
learn what he needs to overcome the difficulties of a tough life in America. I
am so thankful to CAMBA and I greatly appreciate what I learned
My name is Nodieu Saintard, I am from Haiti. I have been
living in New York since April 2010. At the beginning, I could not communicate
in English. My friend recommended me to take ESOL classes at CAMBA' s Adult
Literacy Center. CAMBA helped me to improve my English skills. Now I feel
confident in myself and I got assimilated into the community life in America.
CAMBA is a good place to learn English in a short period of time, get
information about American history, culture and traditions. CAMBA is also a good
place to meet people and make friends. I worked as a dentist in my country and I
would like to have my Dentistry degree in America as well. Little by little I
feel closer to achieving my goal.
