As an adult educator, the author employed Freire's concept of the importance of learning the words of the oppressor and of the instructor teaching from where the learners are. Meanwhile, the article mentions about the author's experience in 1999 when she was recruited through the Canadian Executive Services Organization (CESO) to work with the Adult Literacy Tutors Association (ALTA) in Trinidad and Tobago.
