Announcing the arrival of Kam Bik’s Family
In the middle of this past week Kam Bik, his wife Far Len Sung and sister-in-law Biak Tha Hnem arrived in High Point. They are Hahka Chin and are from the same Burmese city as Cung Pen Lian. They are living on south Elm in the same building as Kyaw Doh. The refugees are always placed in a rental home with a one year lease by World Relief under the direction of Becky Carter. Welcome to America Kam Bik family. If you see him say hello, he understood some of my English.
Next Day: Stopped by Kam Bik’s apartment today. They lived in Malaysia since 2005 after fleeing the Hahka region of the Chin State of Burma. Both Kam Bik and his Biak Tha Hnem were doing quite well understanding my English and they all will make great progress in the ESL classes at GTCC.
GTCC has just announced a college level English as a Foreign Language (EFL) program that was implemented with the January semester and taught by Paula Wilder. Students who have been able to get started with college studies can take these courses for elective credit.
Kam Bik said that while he was in Malaysia, he worked for a Japanese company that manufactured cabinets which they sold in China and Hong Kong.
