In this concise, candid and compelling book, immigrants from over a
dozen countries reveal some of their experiences while learning
English in the United States. Immigrants come to the Land of
Freedom for various reasons. The students who have agreed to share
their experiences all came here as service members, spouses of
soldiers or relatives of someone affiliated with the military.
Although some have earned degrees in their countries, they are
hesitant to interact or speak for fear of being misunderstood or
ridiculed because of their inability to speak or understand
English. Difficulties associated with obtaining employment and
communicating effectively surface because of the language barrier.
This barrier diminishes their self esteem and alters their
attitudes. There are those who have actually returned to their
countries out of frustration. In this book, these are the voices of
those students who decided to stay and immerse themselves into the
learning process. They believe they can acquire the language skills
and customs necessary to participate and contribute in some measure
to their families and society. Additionally, they decided to share
some of delectable dishes which dominate their domains. With
cuisine, there is no language barrier.
