Sarah - speaks in English and Swahili

Mother of two, Sarah, has been learning to read and write in English since she moved to Australia several years ago. Sarah feels that even though her children's English skills are better than her own, she is still able to help her daughter and son by asking them what they did at school during the day, what they have for homework and communicating in their first language.
