In this chapter, we get to know Emily, a young woman who works really hard. She dreams of becoming an English teacher, but she faces some tough obstacles. First, there are problems in her family that make things difficult. On top of that, there isn’t enough money, and she has to deal with bullies who make her journey even harder. Despite all these challenges, Emily is determined to follow her dream.
In a small town, there was a girl named Emily. Emily was a quiet girl with beautiful blue eyes. She had long brown hair and wore glasses to see better. She was both pretty and hardworking, and she was a dreamer. One of her dreams was to become an English teacher.
However, there was a problem that made Emily feel sad about herself. Every day at school,
kids teased her about her English. They imitated her and made funny sounds. Emily tried
hard to speak better, but it felt like she couldn’t get it right. When she spoke, it was like a storm of laughter, and it hurt her heart.
The laughter made Emily feel desperate. She didn’t want to go to school because she was afraid of being laughed at. Sometimes, she wanted to hide and never speak again.
Her clothes became a kind of shield. She wore simple clothes to blend in and not be noticed. She didn’t want to stand out or be different, but at the same time, she wanted to be confident and feel proud of herself. Today was the last day of school. She graduated from high school, and real life would start now.
Now that she had finished school, those bad feelings stuck with her. Emily knew she had to do something about it. Even though it was hard, she hoped for a better future. She wanted to find a way to make the laughter stop in her head and feel good about herself.
Besides going to school, Emily had a job. She needed the money to buy books and things for her studies. It was tough to do both school and work, but she had to. Her mom couldn’t pay for her education. During the day, Emily was in school, in the afternoons, she studied a lot, and at night, she worked at a factory in town.
In Emily’s family, there was no dad. He had left them when she was twelve. Emily’s mom had to take care of the family alone. Later, some health problems arose, and her mom had to stop working. Emily, the oldest of her two siblings, a brother and a sister, felt a duty to help.
They all lived in a small, cozy apartment. It was comfortable but a bit cramped. Emily’s room served as both a study, where she worked on improving her English, and a place where she dreamed of a better future. It was her special spot, where nobody could make fun of her, and she could just be herself.
Late at night, you could find Emily reading and studying with a small lamp. She tried not to wake up her siblings in the next room. The soft light showed her tired face and the heaviness in her eyes. The quiet house made her feel alone in her hard work to make a better future for herself and her family.
Emily’s hope was to learn enough to find a good job one day. Even though the nights were long and the work was hard, Emily kept going. She was the big sister, and she wanted to show her brother and sister that they could make it, even in a small apartment with no dad around.
Emily had a dream, a big one that she held deep in her heart. She wanted to become an English teacher. It was something special to her, something she never talked about out loud.
Why didn’t she talk about it? Because, you see, Emily was afraid. Her English was not very good, and she thought people would laugh at her if they knew about her dream. So, she kept it a secret.
Every night, as she sat in her small room, surrounded by books and the soft glow of the lamp, Emily dreamed about standing in front of a class. She imagined helping kids understand English, just like she wished someone had helped her back in school.
But when the morning light came, Emily locked her dream away, afraid that speaking it out loud might make it disappear. She practiced speaking English in front of the mirror, repeating words and sentences. But every time she stumbled, a voice inside her head echoed the laughter from her school days.
Still, even with the fear, Emily kept working hard. She believed in her dream. Her secret dream gave her strength on those late nights when tiredness crept in. Emily’s dream was like a quiet flame inside her. She knew it was there, warming her heart, but she was careful not to let anyone blow it out.
In Emily’s small town, English was like a tricky puzzle she couldn’t figure out. She knew she had to spend time with people who spoke it every day. Improving her English in her hometown was impossible because she couldn’t afford a tutor or good internet for online learning. Even buying English books was too expensive. The situation was difficult for her.
One day, as Emily sat in her room surrounded by her books and dreams, a bold idea started to form in her mind. What if she moved to an English-speaking country? The thought was both scary and exciting, but Emily believed it could be the key to unlocking her dream of becoming an English teacher.
The idea of practicing English all the time sounded like an adventure, a chance to conquer the language that once made her feel so small. Making foreign friends and talking about everyday situations in English made her heart beat faster.
But there was more to Emily’s plan. Moving to an English-speaking country meant finding a job that paid more, a job that could help support her mom and siblings. Emily felt a strong sense of responsibility for her family, and this idea seemed like a way to give them a better life.
But, did she have enough money to start a new life abroad? Saving a little from her part-time job, it wasn’t much, but it was a start. Emily knew leaving everything familiar wouldn’t be easy, yet the thought of making her dream come true and improving life for her family gave her courage.
Looking at her small room and the town she’d always known, Emily felt a mix of emotions – fear, excitement, and determination. The familiar sights brought back memories, but the idea of chasing her dreams in a new place excited her.
Moving to an English-speaking country was a big step, but Emily was ready to take it. She believed in her dream, and she was willing to chase it across oceans and borders. The journey ahead was uncertain, but Emily’s heart was filled with hope. This move could unlock a brighter future.
If Emily decides to change her life and go to an English-speaking country, you might wonder what will happen next. How will she deal with new challenges, and what interesting things will occur as she works on her English and helps her family? And will she finally move, or will things get more complicated?
In the next part of the story, see what happens next. Join Emily on her journey to find out more. There will be interesting twists and turns that you won’t want to miss.
