The smooth transition from face-to-face to online was only made possible due to an incredibly supportive LINC management team and a truly remarkable group of students. My students’ commitment to learning and building a vibrant and supportive online community far exceeded my expectations.”  Sara – LINC CLB 7/8 Instructor

“As a mother I felt that staying at home was still productive and precious because of the online learning. It was challenging sometimes because of my kids around me, but I really enjoyed listening to my classmates’ thoughts and laughing instead of my kids’ yelling. And I really appreciated that my teacher and classmates totally understood my situation.”   Joy (Korea)

“I could meet my classmates online every week.  It made me feel connected and not alone.” Andrew (China)

“Our online LINC class was fun and motivating. It offered an exciting selection of listening and speaking opportunities. The synchronous sessions gave us much more than English language learning. They gave us a sense of community during the pandemic! I also found it exciting to learn in a new way. I am proud of the new digital skills I have gained. Now I can participate in class online sessions and in breakout rooms. I can use google docs, power point, share the screen, use the chat box & white board.  This has been exciting for me!” (Assia, Morocco)
