Our class has ended, and we now turn the page to a new chapter in our lives. Many of you will return to MEI to study more English, some in the summer term, and some in the fall. Others will transfer to a different school. Good luck to everyone! You have all made amazing progress since the class began. I have enjoyed being your teacher very much. Please stay in touch!

Eman's last assignment
I don't know how to start my last assignment. I can't explain my feeling, no words will be enough. I came today late like always, and I thought I will receive my failing exam paper. But I was shocked when Nina told me you did it, you passed it. It was one of the most wonderful moments in my life. I mean I know I didn't work as hard as I was supposed to. There is no success without hard work. I missed a lot of classes and trips in this semester because of my situation and a lot of trouble getting the visa for my family. I was so depressed, and I couldn't come to class with this bad situation. I learned a lot of things from this country and these people. I have now more experience in several things: for example, life experience, education experience, and communication experience. No words will show how much I appreciate my teacher for caring and pushing me to learn, and she was so patient with me. I can say only one word. It will not explain but it will be the minimum thing I can say. I want to say, thanks Nina, I learned from you a lot of things, I'll never forget you. You are great with me and also with all students. Thanks Nina, my best teacher and friend :).
