BY SISTER JEANNETTE FILTHAUT
Since 2006 I have been involved with Changing Together Centre for Immigrant Women in Edmonton, working in research and teaching levels 3 and 4 of English as a Second Language. This year I had upwards of 12 – 16 women in my classes every Wednesday morning.
These are women of all ages, some married, some single, who come from a variety of countries seeking assistance in learning English and other life skills to help them settle in their new homeland. Many other services are offered at Changing Together. The community bonding that happens among the women of different nationalities is a tribute to the spirit of Changing Together and I am most grateful to have a small part in helping that to happen.
