“I went to my first volunteer meeting this past Saturday and I was not expecting to address a group of refugees. I thought it would be a short meeting to learn more about the organization and what they might expect from me. To my surprised I was engaged almost immediately with meeting people from Poland Ukraine and Russia. It was a nice surprise. When I introduce myself I let them know that I do not speak Russian or Ukrainian. But I do speak some Spanish. And an even bigger surprise I met a family of nine they came to United States from Ukraine but lived in Spain for seven years before they arrived. So they spoke Spanish and that is how we communicated that morning. It was very interesting process.”

Our Immigrant Stories


“My name is Lena Dzyubenko. I’m from Odessa, Ukraine. We are taking high intermediate classes with NicerFl and we are about 5,5 months with them. I’m very grateful to Liliya Soyfer, who told me about Maya Lane and her courses. Why did we choose? Because NicerFl is one of the best and free. For us, this is also an opportunity to improve our English skills and English grammar, for socializing, to meet with other Ukrainian refugees and share experience. NicerFl also provides us to meet and learn English with teachers and tutors who are native speakers, who share with us not only their English knowledge but also about culture and customs of the USA.”


“After arriving in America, I started looking for English courses that would be available in my current situation. I started from Facebook, from a group created to help Ukrainians adapt. So my search led me to NicerFL. It was well on target! Since on the course I have a teacher with many years of teaching experience. I am just delighted with these courses, as I am able to communicate in English and the teacher helps and corrects my pronunciation, and I repeat the grammar, which is also useful for me. I have two teenage sons, one of whom now lives with me in America. I would really like him to be able to take these wonderful online courses as well. I am very grateful for your help and support. Good deeds are always rewarded!”


“My daughter and I have been working at NicerFL since June 2022. We really like our conversation clubs on Saturdays. Very responsive and friendly English-speaking teachers work with us in a relaxed atmosphere. Classes are held in groups of different levels in an accessible, often playful form. For two hours we communicate with native English speakers and there you can always find help and answers to questions related to immigration and job search. A lot of new acquaintances with wonderful people.”
