When I arrived in State College, I was scared because although I tried to understand my professors and my classmates I couldn't. It was so hard for me. I had a small group in my oral communication class, with Oday, Abdulraheem and Said and sometimes we talked about English and I remember that they told me that with two or three months it would be easier and they were right. Over time speaking English was less hard for me.
The IECP faculty were fundamental in making this happen.
