Mary Jane O'brien Monsour is an ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) teacher in Syracuse, New York. Every day, up to 30 adult refugees from Thailand, Bhutan, and other countries come to her class. Most of them have never been to school in their lives, and thus have no previous experience with writing or grammar, even in their native languages.The students arrive early and leave late. They love learning English.>
