next objective. He was studying architecture and journalism but struggled in his English courses. Arroyo plans to take his improved English skills with him to complete his education.

This 27-year-old Mexico City native said he used to feel “incomplete” because of his limited English skills. Now, he said, “I feel better than before.”

Arroyo said another highlight of taking ESL courses has been the personal connection with others from countries such as Brazil, Guatemala and El Salvador. Also, this diligent student has never missed a session – even after accidentally locking his car keys in his house.

Arroyo said he relied on his cousin to translate certain words, but he wanted to learn more. In 2012, he came to a Career Training Expo, a free open house event hosted by the college biannually. “I came with my cousin because I thought no one would speak Spanish, and I needed someone to translate for me,” he recalls. Arroyo met ESL instructor Nancy Brown that night and took an assessment test. “Before she left the room, Ms. Brown spoke to me in Spanish. She said, ‘No cheating!’ It was a surprise, but it made me feel comfortable.” Arroyo started ESL courses shortly after. “I was kind of nervous because I always wanted to learn to speak English, but I wasn’t sure if it was enough to make progress and earn the knowledge.” Today, Arroyo said he no longer has to ask for words to be translated. “I feel comfortable with my English. I can express my feelings to my boss, and I can make a joke with my friends.” He has also been able to accomplish a variety of goals -- one of which involves a Siberian Husky named Lola. He wanted to buy a dog with zero help from others. “I did it by myself,” he said, beaming. “I wrote the email, sent it to the breeder and asked about the price – everything. I felt good about this.” Arroyo will complete his ESL certificate soon, and earning his bachelor’s degree is his 34

“My sister-in-law showed up and opened the door,” he recounted. “I just ran as fast as I could!” Lyn Cohen, Languages program manager, said, “Moises is a model student. His potential is limitless!” Arroyo encourages anyone looking to improve their English skills to take ESL courses, saying, “Believe you can do what you want to do. If you’re doing your best, one day it’s going to happen. Don’t give up.”

Women and Money Through divorce, death of a spouse, or choice, more women are more likely to be living on their own. This means women are more likely to assume sole responsibility for making their own financial decisions than ever before. Women live an average of 4.9 years longer than men. This fact alone shows that women face several financial challenges including: • A decrease in income due to the loss of a spouse. • The need for women to stretch their retirement savings over a longer period of time.

58 APRIL - JUNE 2014 • Call 770-423-6765 or visit ccpe.kennesaw.edu/olli

• Increasing health-care costs related to chronic health conditions due to aging, including the increasing costs for medications taken over a longer period of time. • The fact that women are likely to provide some long-term care for a spouse or loved one, yet women are more apt to face their own need for longterm care alone. • The fact that women who outlive their spouses will probably bear the ultimate responsibility for the disposition of their marital estate. Women today have never been in a better position to achieve financial security for themselves and their families. Yet seizing the opportunity for long-term financial success requires awareness of potential issues and careful planning. $49, 2.5 Hours T.
