James came from China three years ago speaking no English. He spent the first year in the US attending a school to teach English to foreign students who want to attend university. The next year, he entered the same program as me. He did the same work as me, though at a slightly slower pace. It was really challenging for him but he persevered and always had a positive attitude.
He’s also done other things while in the US. He’s learned to drive, run marathons, made a road trip to Florida with family visiting from China, and now has climbed a mountain in the snow. Whenever James and I go out together, I always learn something more about the world and how other people see things. I also always have a really good time.
