The AACA’s Next Steps Transitional English Program celebrated its 20th anniversary on Jan. 17. Current and former students shared their experiences in America, while teachers congratulated them on their success.
When Danfeng “Annie” Chen came to America, she had no family and no English skills.
She enrolled in basic English classes, but felt stuck in terms of improvement. That changed when she signed up for the Next Steps Transitional English Program in 2009 at the Asian American Civic Association.
