We got kicked out of the French courses. It's only available for the new comers to this country and who are sent by an association who welcome the new immigrants.

So, the teachers brought in foods for lunch gathering before some of us leave.

At one point while we were eating, there were a dispute between students at the next door, and it actually became violent. Two black women were fighting and yelling in French that we don't understand.

Later we discussed about it, we have never seen French fighting like this. It's always between African. Then, some students (black from other class) were taking foods without our consent, some asked but with a very impolite way, we thought they want to hurt us.

I wonder, is one race more violent than others or it's the level of education that are responsible in this kind of situation?

    For my story,today I went to ANAEM, a centre to welcome foreigner and they assigned me 200 hrs of class. I enquiry them about the payment that you can benefit from the class and found out they stop giving out the benefit effective 1st of Jan 2007. Is it true?

  2. Yes Natasha,

    They stopped payment early this year. People who had enrolled before 1 Jan can still receive the payment just until the end of their courses. But you see like me, I haven't finished the class, they kicked some of us out. Budget is tied I guess.
