I'm a 15 year old girl and I have some reading struggles.
I'm a freshmen in high school and ever since I started it, I noticed I really need to "fix" my English. When I was young, I always have some difficulties on pronouncing words, my spelling is horrible, my vocabulary is low, and my grammar isn't good. I hide my weakness through the years and now I need to face my weakness... But I'm scared. I feel like it's too late and when I look at my English, I realized it's going to be a long, hard road. Now, I'm dreading High School everyday because of my English. I live in Texas and the district recently changed TAKS to STAAR. STAAR is a more rigorous test. I already took a practice STAAR test and I got to say, I thought it was hard. I'm really scared now. Now I don't think I can go to college because of my childish mistake of trying to hide my weakness!
