Then she was asking for things such as his English assessment because there is a formal testing of his English which needed to get done and his English was strong, but he was going to go to ESL school for three more months, from September to December to sort of bring it up because out of a scale of one to eight his English was a six or seven and maybe even his speaking was six but his writing was five or something so, Amy suggested that he sort of needed to bring those up as much as he could.
