Christina's success story:


"I got a new job thanks to my English classes at GCC!  Information from my VESL class helped me to fill out my application.  I used many sentences from my conversation textbook in my interview and speaking with the supervisor.  I could speak about my soft skills.  My classes helped me use the right words to explain my experience."
