You are going to read a magazine article about three people who came from other countries to live in Britain.



Read extracts. Answer the following questions:

1. Why did she/he come to Britain?

2. What does she/he do in Britain?

3. What does she/he like and dislike about Britain?

 

Kimiko – Japan There are now more than two dozen Japanese companies in Tyne and Wear in the northeast of England. Many Japanese families now live there. Kimiko Kinoshita Wood came to Britain as a bride six years ago. ‘There is much more freedom for women here,’ she says. ‘it is sometimes difficult for Japanese women to adjust[1].’ For Kimiko, the change was easy because she is a translator and speaks English fluently. Also, she has an English husband. ‘Attitudes to women are very different, she says. ‘Japanese wives come to Britain and after a while they discover they can have a life of their own outside the home They do not have that kind of freedom in Japan. ‘In Japan it is unusual to see men shopping with their wives, helping in the house, or babysitting. But Kimiko’s husband, John, a shipping engineer, happily lends a hand with the children. John says that Japanese husbands soon adapt in Britain, and seem to relax more with their families. Education is one thing that worries Kimiko. In Japan children go to school six days a week and work much harder than English children. Another complaint is that shops do not have many clothes for small women.

 

Margarehta – Norway In Britain Margaretha Simons can be a full-time housewife, at home with her four children. This, she says, is unusual in her native Norway because almost all Norwegian women go out to work, partly because there are more crèches[2]. It is also unusual in Norway to have more than two children. Maragretha, who is 43, met her British husband, Noel, a university professor, while she was learning English in Cambridge ‘I find British people friendly,’ she says. ‘New neighbours invite you for coffee, introduce to their children, and take you to the shops. The men are more courteous[3] and romantic than Norwegian men.’ However she doesn’t like everything. She thinks British houses are not built well – even modern houses have a lot of draughts. Also there is too much litter in the streets and by the sides of the motorways. She likes fresh British food, but at first she didn’t like the tea because it looked cloudy and grey. Xavier – France When Xavier Dupont came to Britain, his friends in Paris said he’d hate it. However, Xavier, a 26-year-old chef, says they were wrong. ‘French people imagine that Britain is a cold miserable country where everyone dresses badly, you can’t see anything for fog, and the food is the worst on the planet. I do not agree.’ Xavier insists that British look good because they do not follow the fashion so seriously. He enjoys shopping in Britain because there are so many fresh things in the supermarkets. He particularly likes the street markets. However he has some complaints. He thinks that British men do not show enough consideration[4] or appreciation[5] of the women. Also, he doesn’t like British bathrooms where you stand or sit in the bath to have a shower! Last of all, he feels that shops and restaurants close far too often and far too early.

 


[1] to adjust – приспособить (ся)

2 crèches – детские ясли

[3] courteous – галантный

[4] consideration – внимание

[5] appreciation – оценка
