In October, a reporter from the Barking and Dagenham Post visited the Creative English class at Castle Point in Dagenham, where he also met with programme creator Dr. Anne Smith herself. An article was featured in the 7th October edition, featuring some words from Anne and from a number of learners taking part in the class, including Fahima who attends with her mother, Rokeya:
I moved to England when I was one, so I speak English fine – it’s social for me, and I help to teach. But for mum, it’s been great – now she pays bills, goes to the doctor. She was depressed before.
