The following story was written by Jean Wei, from Calgary, Alberta. Jean moved to Canada from China a few years ago. She was an assistant in the Human Resources Department in China, so she likes talking with people. She likes cooking, travelling, writing and caring for babies.
I work in a Taco Bell restaurant. Although my work is very busy, I feel very happy.
I came to Calgary in March 2006. My first work day was on May 17.
My manager and workmates are very nice. They give me a lot of help in learning English.
I often ask them,
"How do you say this in English?" Sometimes
I forget some words, and then they teach me again and again.
My English level is improving step by step. I feel happy during my working day. I am grateful to my working team.
