Unit 7: Moving abroad

This unit is about what life can be like when families emigrate and move a long way from home. Some stay in an adopted country for a long time, perhaps for the rest of their lives or even for many generations.

In this unit you’re going to …

  • talk about your classmates’ international experience
  • talk about why people leave their home countries
  • listen to an Indian girl’s story about leaving India
  • watch a TV discussion show from Australia about cultural differences
  • write your opinions about other people’s problems with their families
  • listen to and read about an English woman who came to live in Switzerland
  • plan and carry out a spoken interview

Language focus: each other, asking questions, what to say if you don’t understand
